Cranston Business Litigation Attorney Handling Breach of Contract Cases

Taking Rhode Island business disputes to trial and appeals court

You had an agreement. The terms of that agreement weren't fulfilled. Now you have a problem, possibly a big, expensive problem. What are your options for resolution?

You can take the non-performing party to court with a breach of contract claim. You can seek an "equitable remedy" in which a judge can force the breaching party to fulfill his/her obligations under the contract, or the contract can be cancelled (rescission) and any money paid under the contract will be returned.

If it's no longer possible or preferable to fulfill the contract, you may seek damages instead. A judge could award compensatory damages, making the breaching party pay for direct and indirect losses you incurred as a result of the reach of contract. You may also ask for liquidated damages and attorneys' fees and costs if your contract specified these.

Experience on your side

Cranston business litigation attorney Steven A. Robinson has 25 years of trial court experience resolving contract disputes in Rhode Island District and Superior Courts and on appeals. Mr. Robinson handles breach of contract cases involving:

  • Breach of lease
  • Breach of purchase-sale contracts
  • Breach of real estate agreements
  • Breach of supplier contracts
  • Breach of employment contract
  • Failure to pay
  • Failure to perform/provide a service

Is your case worth taking to court?

Taking a case to court can be costly. Mr. Robinson will review all the facts of your case and he will give you an honest assessment of the strength of your case and the likelihood you can prevail at trial. If there are other options for a successful resolution, he will advise you of those options so you can decide how you want to proceed given your goals and budget.

Attorney Robinson is often able to negotiate an acceptable resolution without the need for a trial. The same skills of persuasion he uses in court can result in a successful resolution in pretrial negotiations.
