Commercial Litigation & Contract Disputes

Contracts are legal instruments by which parties exchange promises, services, or goods. Although these agreements are typically entered into with the expectations of a beneficial relationship, disputes arise nonetheless. Contracts are broken for a variety of reasons which sometimes include intentional breaches due to the economic benefits one party may incur by breaching rather than honoring the contractual obligations. Other reasons include breach due to unexpected events/ conditions and the unwillingness of one contracting party to satisfy the contractual arrangements. These contractual arrangements are legally enforceable and therefore, more often than not, lead to litigation.

Leeson & Leeson represents clients in all stages of litigation and have successfully litigated disputes with some of the largest companies in Pennsylvania and the country. From the onset of a dispute through to resolution, we help our clients make well-informed decisions.

Financial viability, risk management, and optimizing resources are critical to a successful outcome in any commercial dispute. Some firms have the legal acumen to handle litigation proceedings and legal research, but not all firms understand and properly evaluate the monetary impacts of litigation proceedings, including the expenses and investment in legal fees, evaluating return on investment of potential litigation as well as being prepared to rigorously litigate when the matter calls for a tough and intimidating advocate. Leeson & Leeson prides itself for having the financial understanding as well as the legal competency to evaluate and advocate effectively and efficiently.
