Agreements form the basis for most financial transactions and economic activity; for this reason, contracts are at the centre of most commercial litigation disputes.

Breach of contract cases are rarely straightforward. Your lawyer must know the law and know your business. Speak with Matthew R. Harris to see how he can represent you.
