Contracts are an extremely important part of doing business in Tennessee. Contracts are supposed to ensure that work gets done on time and per the agreed upon details for a set price. But real life doesn’t always work out that way.
Unfortunately, contracts get disputed or breached all the time. And while contracts are supposed to be legally binding, they are often ignored or dismissed by one or more parties named in them. This can cost people and businesses big money and waste precious time, energy, and resources.
Without an experienced lawyer, it can be difficult or even impossible to hold others accountable for breach of contract. In addition, many contracts are written with plenty of vague language, legalese, and loopholes that allow parties to back out with little to no consequences. This is why it’s so important to have a law firm familiar with contracts and civil law on your side with these types of disputes.
Types of Contract Disputes We Handle
We handle a variety of contract disputes, including those in:
- Home repairs and renovations
- Sales of businesses
- And more
Simply put, when and where there’s a contract involved, there’s a possibility of fraud and dispute. And when that happens, you can’t afford to NOT have an experienced civil law firm on your side.
Contracts are extremely complex and often written in a manner that favors one side over the other. Our lawyers will work hard to ensure that your rights are upheld and that all binding aspects of the contract are enforced in full.
We Can Assist with Contracts You’ve Signed
If you’re on the other side of the table and are worried about potentially breaching a contract or are disputing some aspect of a contract you’ve signed, we can help. Our lawyers can read through any contract before or after you’ve signed it to help you understand what it’s saying and what is expected of you moving forward.
We can also spell out in plain detail what might happen if you fail to uphold your end of the bargain as well as the terms and conditions for a possible breach of contract situation. In addition, we’ll point out any language and terms that may be unfair and unenforceable, which is common in many contracts in many industries.
Oral Contracts May or May Not Be Enforceable
Many deals in Tennessee are entered into in “good faith” and via oral contracts. A verbal agreement and a handshake can go a long way, but they aren’t always enforceable via the law—especially when actual terms were never specified or agreed upon.

Contracts are supposed to be mutually beneficial for all parties involved when they are signed. They hold people and parties accountable for their actions and their decisions. Unfortunately, many people and parties knowingly breach contracts because they don’t think they will ever face the consequences of doing so, while others may create contracts that are too strict or are simply unenforceable.
