Bass Pro Shops files breach of contract lawsuit

It might not be uncommon for larger companies in Florida and elsewhere to allow another entity to provide services within their stores in exchange for a percentage of the proceeds. However, should this company claim that the other party has failed to provide the necessary compensation, both parties may end up engaged in intense legal disputes. Bass Pro Shops has recently filed a lawsuit accusing Bluegreen Vacations of breach of contract under similar circumstances.

The lawsuit reportedly stems from an arrangement in which Bass Pro agreed to allow Bluegreen to set up kiosks to sell timeshares in certain stores. The company states that in exchange, Bluegreen agreed to pay a certain percentage in commission on all of its sales. However, Bass Pro says that the other company has failed to provide it with the necessary compensation.

Bass Pro has also accused the other party of taking back certain amounts of commission on accounts in defaulted status. The company also states that Bluegreen violated its contract by allowing the operators of these kiosks to subject customers to high levels of pressure. Bass Pro has filed a lawsuit against Bluegreen and is reportedly seeking more than $10 million in restitution.

Allegations of breach of contract can have a devastating impact on a company and dealing with similar issues can be a stressful experience. Those who encounter such disputes may wish to gain a better understanding of each of their available options, and they could benefit from seeking legal counsel early on for guidance. An attorney in Florida can examine the contract and assist a client in forming a strategy to protect his or her business interests through the necessary channels.
