The attorneys for Macy's Inc. and J.C. Penney Co. made their final arguments recently in their contract dispute over rights to Martha Stewart Living merchandise. The parties reconvened after the last of many breaks in the trial that opened in February. While scheduling issues caused most of the delays, the court halted the proceedings at one point -- in March -- so that the retailers could attempt to mediate the matter.
Contract disputes are inherently complicated cases. When an individual or a company accuses another person or entity of breach of contract, each side is going to think that they are in the right. Because of this very reason, it is vital for the parties involved in a contract dispute to secure legal representation. Consulting an experienced business lawyer can help you protect your rights and ensure that you are going about the case in the right way.
