Sweep accuses Blue Duck Express of breach of contract

Posted by William J. Cook | Nov 07, 2019 | 0 Comments

Upon entering a business agreement with another party, companies in Florida and elsewhere may expect their new partners to be capable of holding up their end of the arrangement. Allegations of failure to comply with the terms of a contract can lead to intense disputes that can have a significant impact on the future of all companies involved. A company that performs charging services for electric scooters has recently filed a breach of contract lawsuit accusing another party of misrepresenting its capabilities.

The company Sweep says the incident began when it reached an agreement to provide housing and charging services for electric scooters for Blue Duck Express. Sweep says it was to provide these services after Blue Duck sought to expand operations to a new area. However, the company claims that the expansion was placed on hold after Blue Duck failed to take the necessary steps to obtain permits for the operation.

According to reports, Sweep was already housing electric scooters for the other party in preparation for the opening of the new venture. Sweep asserts the other company has failed to provide payment for services rendered. Sweep has accused Blue Duck of being misleading about its capabilities and the company is reportedly seeking restitution for losses through a breach of contract lawsuit.

When a new venture fails to turn out as expected, the fallout could lead to intense levels of conflict among all parties involved. Those who feel that a breach of contract has occurred may wish to gain insight into all their available options and they could choose to retain the services of an attorney for guidance on how best to proceed. An attorney can examine the situation a client in Florida is facing and assist in forming a strategy to protect the future of his or her company through the necessary outlets.
