Capable Utah Business Litigation Attorneys Resolve Complex Disputes

Established law firm represents companies in the state of Utah

If you engage in commerce, sooner or later you are almost certain to encounter a dispute with a client or contractor that you’ll need outside help to resolve. If your company was wronged by a breach of contract or if claims of unfair practices have been made against your business, contacting an experienced business litigation firm is essential. At Peters | Scofield A Professional Corporation, we represent business owners and corporate boards in the Sandy and across in trials in Utah and federal courts. As strong negotiators, we will seek to settle disputes to save your company both time and expense, but we are always prepared to assert your rights at trial.

Knowledgeable litigators handle breach of contract cases

To run a business smoothly and successfully, owners often have to place their trust in the hands of employees, third-party contractors or other businesses. When that trust is broken, it can affect business operations, profits, consumer confidence and more. When a party to a contract doesn’t perform, there are remedies our attorneys can seek for monetary damages or equitable relief. These may include:

  • Compensatory damages — Reimbursement for immediate monetary loss
  • Consequential and incidental damages  Compensation for additional foreseeable losses caused by the breach
  • Attorney fees and costs  Amounts available only if the contract expressly states they are recoverable
  • Liquidated damages — Amounts specified in the contract that are payable for particular breaches, such as late or substandard performance
  • Specific performance  Court order requiring the breaching party to fulfill the terms of the contract
  • Punitive damages  Penalty for a party’s objectionable behavior, meant to punish the breaching party and discourage other parties from acting in a similar manner
  • Rescission  Cancellation of the contract, with both sides excused from further performance and payments made under the contract returned
  • Reformation  Change in the terms of the contract when the court believes there was an honest misunderstanding by the parties about what was to be performed

The lawyers at Peters | Scofield A Professional Corporation are committed to helping business owners achieve the best legal remedy for breach of contract cases, whether they are the plaintiffs or defendants.

Skilled attorneys negotiate from a position of strength

Resolving a business dispute outside of court saves companies both time and money. The professionals at Peters | Scofield A Professional Corporation will seek to have frivolous claims dropped or dismissed and work strategically to negotiate favorable settlements at the bargaining table. We understand the advantages of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), including mediation and arbitration. Our skilled negotiators help our clients get their businesses back on track while avoiding the expense of litigation.

Experienced litigators press for your rights in court

If litigation becomes necessary, we build strong cases and argue them before a judge. In addition to breach of contract, the possible legal actions that may be brought against a business are wide-ranging and can include complaints from employees, customers, other businesses or the government related to:

  • Insurance
  • Business torts
  • Products liability
  • Professional liability
  • Partnership and shareholder disputes

  • Intellectual property, including copyright and trademark infringement
