Breach of Contract Lawyers in New York City

Wasserman Grubin & Rogers, L.L.P., has decades of experience drafting, negotiating and modifying custom and form contracts. We know how important it is to clearly establish what each party wants, and when certain products or services are to be rendered. Unfortunately, oral contracts or poorly drafted contracts often result in contract disputes involving different interpretation or even disingenuous claims of varying interpretation.

Business disputes in fact often involve allegations of breach of contract. Contracts are the basis of a business, mutual promises that promote confidence and a viable business model.

What Constitutes Breach?

Outright refusal or failure to perform on a contract is less common than disputed claims of minor or material breach. How a contract should be interpreted is partly a matter of case law or precedent - what courts have done in prior similar circumstances. Sometimes, contracts are held by courts to be invalid. Reasons for this result include failure to satisfy the basic requirements of a contract or, occasionally, fundamental unfairness. We can advise you on the contract in question, and represent you in seeking resolution of the dispute.

Our vast experience includes construction contracts of various types, including architectural/engineering agreements, construction manager agreements, GMP contracts, and design-build contracts, among others.

  • Compensatory Damages
