Contracts are a major component of all business litigation, as disputes arise out of the responsibilities and duties assumed under these agreements. While a written contract more clearly defines these responsibilities, a contract doesn’t have to be in writing in order to be enforceable. Regardless of the nature of the agreement, it’s always important to thoroughly understand the rights and responsibilities of all parties involved. When one or more parties fail to fulfill these contractual obligations, a breach has occurred. Paul Miller has a wealth of experience pursuing and defending breach of contract claims across the Commonwealth of Virginia and District of Columbia.
