Some businesses in Florida and across the nation may rely on other companies to manufacture their products. This arrangement could play a significant role in a company’s success, and should the other party choose to end the arrangement and stop providing similar services, intense contract disputes may ensue. Pabst Brewing Company has filed a lawsuit accusing MillerCoors of attempting to put the company out of business under similar circumstances.
According to reports, the two companies have had a longstanding partnership in which MillerCoors provided Pabst Brewing with a variety of services. Pabst claims that the other party is responsible for manufacturing, packaging and shipping most of its products. However, the company says it was recently informed that MillerCoors would no longer be providing these services.
Pabst has accused MillerCoors of providing false information about its ability to continue brewing for the company in an attempt to put Pabst out of business. However, MillerCoors claims that it is no longer obligated to continue providing these services. MillerCoors also asserts that Pabst is unwilling to increase payments enough to justify the continuation of the partnership.
With a great deal at stake for all parties involved, contract disputes can be highly debatable matters. Those who wish to protect their legal rights and safeguard the future of their companies could benefit from retaining the services of an attorney early on for guidance on how best to approach the situation. An attorney can examine the circumstances a client in Florida is facing, along with the contract, and assist him or her in pursuing the most favorable outcome achievable through the necessary channels.
