No one enters a contractual agreement with the intention of things going wrong or breaching the agreement. But written contracts are intended to ensure that all parties to the agreement understand their rights and obligations. Unfortunately, despite everyone’s best intentions, disputes can arise during the course of a contract. Sometimes a poorly drafted contract can lead to confusion over rights and obligations. And in some cases, a party will simply repudiate their responsibilities under a contract. 

A commercial contract dispute or contract litigation has the potential to bring your business’s or company’s operations to a standstill, especially when you have to devote substantial time, money, and resources to resolve a dispute or litigation.

Frequently Asked Questions about Commercial Contract Litigation in New Jersey

Will I have to go to trial to resolve a commercial contract dispute?

We recognize that trial litigation is often unduly expensive and time-consuming for our business clients. That’s why we will always explore alternative dispute resolution methods to resolve our clients’ commercial contract disputes, including informal settlement negotiations, formal mediation, or arbitration so that you can move on from a dispute and get back to business. Of course, we will always advise you when litigation represents the best option for securing your preferred outcome in a dispute, and our experienced litigators are always prepared to advocate on your behalf in court.

How long do I have to file a lawsuit to recover compensation or other relief from a breach of a commercial contract?

In most cases, a breach of contract lawsuit must be filed within six years of the date of the breach. However, commercial contracts for the purchase and sale of goods have a different statute of limitations period; lawsuits must be filed within four years of the date of the breach. Of course, parties to a commercial contract are free to agree to a shorter limitations period for lawsuits arising from or relating to the contract, so you will want to review the terms of your agreement and the facts of your case with one of our knowledgeable commercial contract litigation attorneys to confirm how long you have before you must file a lawsuit or lose the right to pursue your claim in court.
