Taxes And You
Dealing with the IRS or the South Carolina Department of Revenue can be very challenging. You probably feel like they don’t care about your circumstances and they just want your money–yesterday. This can force you to face some pretty punishing situations like accepting garnishment, levy, and liens. This is on top of the compounding penalties and interest. The IRS can seize your bank account, income, and control and sell off your assets–this is when they’re not politically targeting various individuals and companies.

Breach Of Contract
Often times, in the business world, disputes arise and need to be resolved by way of a lawsuit. In the real world, delays happen, financial issues can arise, or other unexpected events can happen that can put a contract on hold or even keep a successful business contract from being completed, and makes hiring a South Carolina Breach of Contract Attorney necessary.
What Is A Contract?
A business contract makes rules and obligations that need to be met by all parties or companies that entered into the contract. Under South Carolina law, both parties must live up to their agreement, and a party’s failure to carry out a certain aspect of the contract is called a “breach of contract,” and can be remedied by breach of contract suit.
What Constitutes A “Breach”?
Depending on the specificity and details of a contract, a breach can happen when one or more parties fail to meet deadlines, doesn’t meet the terms and conditions, or simply doesn’t perform at all. Usually the remedies will be outlined in the contract to address material or immaterial breaches.
Remedies can include:
- Damages – payment in some form or another to include compensatory damages, punitive damages, nominal damages, liquidated damages;
- Compensatory damages – put damaged party in the position as if the breach hadn’t occurred;
- Punitive damages – payments the breaching party must give to non-breaching party to fully compensate for particularly wrongful acts;
- Nominal damages – damages awarded when no monetary loss occurred to the damaged party; or
- Liquidated damages – damages that were specifically outlined in the contract that explain what a reasonable outcome is, in the event of a contract breach.
- Specific performance – to simply put this, it is the court mandating that the breaching party carry out some performance or duty under the contract; or
- Cancellation and restitution – the non-breaching party may cancel the contract and sue for restitution if some sort of benefit, handout, or any action or gift was given to the breaching party prior to the breach. This action will make the contract null and void and relieve all parties of any obligation to perform under the contract.
What Should I Do?
If you’ve been affected by a breach of contract, please contact a business litigation attorney who will work with you to see what kind of remedy is due to you or your company. Let us help you with your suit and let us help protect you from being further damages due to a breach of contract.
Federal Wire Fraud Defense
The name “wire fraud” may seem pretty confusing, but the concept is pretty simple, albeit broad. The law defines wire fraud as trying to scheme or defraud others out of money or property under false pretenses by means of electronic communications, or, “wires.” Because the internet is so wide, wire fraud generally involves “interstate” matters making it a federal crime. If you’re charged with wire fraud, you could be looking at enormous fines, incarceration time of up to 20 years, or both. South Carolina takes these cases very seriously, meaning you should immediately hire an experienced South Carolina Federal Wire Fraud Attorney who can handle cases involving:
- Fraudulent insurance claims
- Bond issuances and investment schemes
- Falsifying loan applications
- Check fraud schemes
- Bribes or kickbacks
- False advertising or misrepresentation in sales transactions
