Sarasota trial practice and dispute resolution services

Norton Hammersley Litigation

Contracts are at the heart of practically all business transactions. Individuals who work in the Sarasota business community know that in order to secure goods and services for the benefit of a corporate entity, one will likely have to enter into a contractual agreement with other parties. At its simplest level, a contract is an agreement whereby one party accepts the offer of another in exchange for some form of consideration.

When contracts work as they are intended, Sarasota businesses can thrive. Strong business relationships are often built on effective contracts, and in some situations it is possible for businesses to avoid future conflict by taking the time to create clear, solid agreements at the outset of creating new business affiliations.

The Sarasota law firm of Norton, Hammersley, Lopez & Skokos offers the highest-quality personal service for individuals and businesses. Our trial practice and dispute-resolution group represents local, regional, national and international clients including real-estate developers, large corporations, insurance companies, contractors, financial institutions, small businesses and individuals. We provide contract negotiation and formation legal services for entities that desire to proactively avoid contract problems by creating strong agreements from the start.

Not every contract dispute can be avoided, however, and in some circumstances a business may find itself facing litigation based on the alleged breach of contract or other problem related to the operation of the agreement. When a business suffers as a result of another party’s failings or is accused of failing to perform under the terms of a business agreement, the attorneys of Norton, Hammersley, Lopez & Skokos are here to help.

Contract litigation is a challenging area of the law because every contract contains unique terms, conditions, and performance requirements for the parties and entities bound to it. Businesses that need assistance working through the dense and sometimes technical aspects of their contract disputes are invited to visit the Sarasota law firm of Norton, Hammersley, Lopez & Skokos website and read more about our trial practice and dispute-resolution law practice at
