Sorel guides Plaintiff to win oral contract case: Jury finds oral contract breached by Insomniac Design, Inc.

Representing District Design Group, LLC, Christiane E. Sorel successfully tried the case against Insomniac Design, Inc. for breach of oral contract. The jury rendered its verdict October 17, 2014, affirming the existence of an oral contract between the parties. Getting a jury to uphold an oral contract in the District of Columbia is challenging enough; proving breach of that contract is rare indeed. Fierce competition among Independent Information and Communication Technology (ITC) results in subcontractors all too often starting work on “rush” jobs without proper documentation.   Unscrupulous clients and/or prime contractors (“primes”) are poised to take advantage, believing that the legal system protects them from strict enforcement of oral contracts. No longer.

Prevention – protecting yourself and your company from predatory entrepreneurs – is key. Call today for a consultation.
