Texas company files complaint against another for unpaid services

Breach of contract cases often extend beyond a complaint of an employer against an employee and vice versa. In many instances, a company will have reason to go against another company it has done business with, if the other company failed to keep all or a portion of the agreement. If a Texas business hasn't been paid monies due for goods or services provided to another company, or if there is any other type of contract dispute, the entity has the right to have its case heard in court.

In a recent case, Jefferson County company Pentair Thermal Management filed a complaint against a couple doing business as Instrumentation Technologies and Components. Pentair alleges that the other company did not pay $45,296.37 out of the $50,329.30 owed to it for labor and materials that it provided. The complaint cites breach of contract, unjust enrichment and negligent misrepresentation, plus the amount owed, pre- and post-judgment interest and attorneys' fees.

In instances where a large amount of money, products or services are due but one company fails to uphold its end of the agreement, it can be more effective to enlist the aid of a business attorney instead of attempting to solve the disagreement alone. Cases that involve a sizeable sum may be difficult to resolve outside of court if one or more parties fail to abide by the terms of the contract. The idea of litigation may not appeal to some business owners, but the outcome can protect the interests of the parties involved, as well as resolve the dispute.
