Breach of Contract: From a Business Litigation Perspective

A Breach of Contract, in the simplest terms, is when one of the parties who entered into a contract no longer obeys the rules of the contract. Some types of Breach of Contract Law that the Astoria Law Firm of Solomos and Storms handles are;

Fraud Litigation: Complex Business Litigation

Fraud litigation can be difficult to prevail at due to the stringent rules set forth by the courts. In order to prevail in a fraud lawsuit, the plaintiff must prove the defendant; knowingly made a misrepresentation of fact, the defendant made the misrepresentation with the intention of having the plaintiff act in reliance on the misrepresentation, that the plaintiff was justified in acting upon the defendant’s misrepresentation, and thereby suffered damages pursuant to that reliance and subsequent action.

Non-Compete Litigation

What is a Non-Compete Agreement?

A Non-Compete Agreement is simply a contract between an employer and an employee stating that when the employee leaves the job, they can not work for a competitor of the business, or work in their own capacity in direct competition with their former employer. This is a way for employers to prevent their trade secrets from falling into the hands of their competitors, giving them an unfair advantage. When a former employee ignores this agreement, they could end up in court, fighting a costly litigation.

If you have concerns about a non-compete clause, contact Astoria Law Firm of Solomos and Storms for an evaluation. Time is of the essence!

Breach of Fiduciary Duty

A Fiduciary is charged with the duty of acting in the best interest of another person. This could apply to a board member’s duty to the company’s shareholders or the Trustee of an Estate acting on behalf of the beneficiaries. A Breach of Fiduciary Duty usually occurs when the fiduciary stops acting in the best interests of the person or persons they are charged with taking care of, and starts acting in their own best interest. If you suspect this is going on, contact Solomos and Storms today to set up an appointment.

Insurance Claims Disputes

Insurance claims disputes can involve any type of insurance, from homeowners to health to automobile, to business insurance. If you have a claim that has been improperly denied, you have several options; you can call up the insurance company, spending hours on the phone, “Now press this..”, or you could write a letter and hope someone actually reads it, or you could consult an Astoria Insurance Attorney to see if you have any legal avenues to pursue. One of the most common  denials businesses in Astoria face is for business interruption insurance. If you have been denied coverage for any reason, we want to hear about it. Solomos and Storms.
