Prize fighter, Nate Diaz in contract disputes with sports agency

It's not always smooth sailing when it comes to business relationships in Illinois. In fact, contract disputes happen often and aren't always easy to resolve. UFC fighter, Nate Diaz knows how that is as he's currently engaged in an particular ongoing battle with a sports agency known as The Ballengee Group.

The company says Diaz entered a written agreement with it some time ago. Strangely, he backed out just one month shy of his biggest fight. In that event, Diaz fought Conor McGregor and raked in a cool $2 million. The Ballengee Group says it should get some of that money for services rendered at four separate events that have yet to be paid.

The sports agency named two others as defendants in the civil lawsuit it filed. It is alleged the three defendants worked together to intentionally breach the existing contract. Situations like this often lead to lengthy litigation battles, if one or more parties refuses to cooperate and compromise as needed.

An experienced business and commercial law attorney in Illinois is able to provide strong support when contract disputes arise. In the Diaz case, the plaintiffs are seeking more than $1 million in damages. There's no telling how long such things may linger if one does not act alongside aggressive representation. An attorney knows what to do and say to protect a business owner's rights and can work hard to protect bottom line interests as well. Through skilled negotiation and experienced litigation, most business problems related to contracts can be resolved.
