Louisiana Obligations

New Orleans Obligations Law Firm Settles Disputes

Louisiana attorneys help enforce agreements and contracts

Nearly every type of transaction we take part in requires some type of agreement. Some of these agreements involve long, complex contracts, while others are implied understandings between two people that one will do something and the other will pay. Louisiana law calls the responsibilities created by these agreements “obligations.” Law Offices of Gordon P. Serou, Jr., L.L.C. provides detailed legal help to those seeking to enforce an obligation or to have it nullified.

Enforcing your rights when a contract is breached

When there is a problem with a transaction or a contract has been breached, there are a variety of ways to resolve it. First, the parties can discuss the problem and try to come up with a solution that works for everyone. If the parties cannot come to an agreement, they can hire contract law attorneys to help them negotiate a settlement. One form of settlement unique to Louisiana law is called a “novation.” A novation replaces the old agreement with new obligations. In some cases, settlement will not be possible and either the obligor or the obligee will wish to bring the case to court and litigate it. We are knowledgeable courtroom attorneys with experience representing those on both sides of contracts and obligations disputes.

Helping individuals and businesses remove unfair obligations

There are many reasons why contracts may be unenforceable or obligations can become nullified. Our New Orleans attorneys work to prove that deficiencies in the contract should free you of your obligations. Common deficiencies are known as “vices of consent” and include:

  • Error
  • Fraud
  • Duress

Our lawyers work to help both sides come to a fair resolution in contracts and obligations cases.
