Breach of Contract

At Freeman & Fuson, we have a wealth of experience representing individuals and businesses in breach of contract lawsuits in Tennessee. Our attorneys have a deep understanding of Tennessee contract law and the procedures and laws related to contract litigation.

Breach of Contract in Tennessee: In Tennessee, a breach of contract occurs when one party fails to fulfill their obligations under a legally binding agreement. A breach of contract can happen in various ways, such as failing to make a payment, deliver goods or services, or meet a deadline. When a breach of contract occurs, the non-breaching party may have legal remedies available.

Tennessee Contract Law: Tennessee contract law is based on common law principles and is governed by the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). The UCC sets out rules for the sale of goods, leases, negotiable instruments, and other commercial transactions. In addition, Tennessee has specific statutes and case law that apply to contract disputes.

Defending Breach of Contract Claims: If you are facing a breach of contract lawsuit in Tennessee, it is essential to have experienced attorneys who can defend your rights and protect your interests. Our attorneys are skilled at defending clients against breach of contract allegations, and we can use various strategies to help you achieve the best possible outcome.

Defenses against breach of contract claims may include:

  1. Lack of Breach: If there is no evidence that you failed to fulfill your obligations under the contract, we can argue that you did not breach the contract.
  2. Lack of Damages: If the non-breaching party did not suffer any financial losses or damages as a result of the alleged breach, we can argue that they are not entitled to compensation.
  3. Unenforceability: If the contract is not enforceable under Tennessee law, we can argue that the breach of contract claim should be dismissed.

Contract Litigation Procedures in Tennessee: The litigation procedures for contract disputes may include:

  1. Filing a complaint: The non-breaching party typically files a complaint with the court, alleging that the other party breached the contract.
  2. Discovery: Both parties engage in discovery, which involves exchanging information and evidence relevant to the case.
  3. Mediation and settlement negotiations: In some cases, the parties may engage in mediation or settlement negotiations to try to resolve the dispute outside of court.
  4. Trial: If the dispute cannot be resolved through mediation or settlement negotiations, the case may proceed to trial.

Our attorneys are experienced in handling contract litigation procedures and can guide you through the entire process. Mark Freeman, Partner, has been practicing law in Tennessee for nearly thirty years and is a certified civil trial specialist.

In Tennessee, breach of contract lawsuits are typically subject to a six-year statute of limitations, meaning that the lawsuit must be filed within six years of the breach. In addition, Tennessee law requires that all contracts be in writing if they involve the sale of goods over $500 or real property.

Joey is a talented lawyer who cares about his clients. Sarah his assistant is a true professional, but more than that they care about you as a person first. I would highly recommend the team. Bill Hoskinson
Relief! Mark Freeman is the best lawyer I have ever had. He took care of my Criminal Case in one day. Answered all phone calls and returned them all as well. He didn't hesitate to answer any of my questions. I am very thankful he had my case dropped! Not many lawyers can do that. I highly recommend him. He treats you as more so family than a client. If I ever have another case Mark Freeman will be my lawyer. Peter P.

I have NEVER gotten so much for my money with any other attorney before. I'm looking forward to referring you as much as possible in the future. Thanks again buddy. Charles G.
I just want to say that Mrs. Carolanne King is the greatest lawyer I have ever had. She is truly amazing and knows how to get the job done. She walked with me through the whole court process and worked for me when everyone else said that they could not help me. I am truly grateful for the law firm of Freeman and Fuson. D.D
