Comprehensive Contract and Litigation Support for Louisiana Businesses

Enforceable legal contracts are the basis of successful business transactions and employment agreements. Contracts are also frequently the subject of litigation.

While it is generally advisable to resolve contract disputes outside of court when possible, an aggressive litigation strategy is needed if resolution cannot be reached through low-conflict negotiation.

As we discussed in a recent post, the most effective way to handle a breach of contract claim is to make it trial-ready from the start.

The stronger your position is during out-of-court negotiation, the stronger your position will be in the event that the dispute requires litigation. Your rights and interests are best protected by ensuring that your claim or your defense against a claim is trial-ready every step of the way.

With offices in Mandeville, Louisiana, Schexnaydre Law Firm advises and represents individuals and businesses in a wide variety of contractual matters, including:

  • Shareholder and partnership agreements
  • Employment contracts and noncompete agreements
  • Asset and stock purchase agreements
  • Marketing contracts
  • Product sales contracts

We also provide comprehensive transactional and litigation services in the oil and gas industry.

What's in a contract?

To put the matter generally, a valid contract has four basic elements under Louisiana law:

  • Capacity
  • Consent
  • Lawful Cause
  • Lawful Object

These elements are discussed in more detail in one of our previous posts, "What Makes a Business Contract Valid in Louisiana?"

Bottom line: if you are facing the possibility of losing money because another party failed to uphold the terms of a contract, or if you are facing a breach of contract claim, work with a skilled commercial litigation attorney who knows when to resolve matters outside of court and when to escalate matters if the other party refuses to cooperate.
