An Accomplished Michigan Commercial Litigation Lawyer Fights for You

Michigan attorney litigates on behalf of your business

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. At the law office of Holly B. Safronoff PC, I have been assisting businesses with alternative dispute resolution and civil court trials in both state and federal court for more than 20 years. I have the knowledge and experience to help your business in cases related to:

  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of warranty
  • Business torts
  • Commercial litigation
  • Contract litigation
  • Construction law and litigation
  • General civil litigation
  • Partnership and shareholder disputes
  • Real estate disputes
  • Real estate litigation

Recovery from breach of contract

When a party to a contract fails to perform, they damage the other business. This damage often goes beyond the immediate inconvenience of getting less than promised by the contract. The breach can also cost you future profits if you are unable to serve your clients as a result. I can help you achieve the best legal remedy for a breach of contract, such as:

  • 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 that 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 to discourage other parties from acting in a similar manner
  • Rescission  Cancellation of the contract, with both sides excused from further performance and with the return of payments that were made under the contract
  • Reformation  Change in the terms of the contract when the court believes that there was an honest misunderstanding by the parties about what was to be performed

Affordable alternatives to a civil suit

The cost of traditional litigation can easily exceed the amount of the contract. Fortunately, there are various means of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), including mediation and arbitration, which are less costly and are quicker than civil lawsuits, but can deliver the same remedies. I have successfully represented clients in arbitration and mediation hearings, and have settled lawsuits before trial, reducing expenses for my clients and moving their businesses back on track.
