Business law entails the formation, financing, operation, and dissolution of corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies - typically defined through contracts and other legally binding agreements. When one party fails to meet their obligation under the arrangement, they may be in breach of contract. In Washington, parties have six years to bring a written contract dispute claim and three years to bring an oral one. While these matters can often be resolved outside of the courtroom through mediation and arbitration, an impasse on how to bring a case to resolution can sometimes require litigation. Often, the best way to prevent this is by utilizing a Washington business lawyer for clear, honest, and direct representation before you enter into an agreement.
