Q: Contract violation by a company in NY.

Contract terms state that the the violating party will handle lawyers expenses. Invoices have been sent regularly but the violatiing company does not respond. My company is register in MN but prefer the case to be handled in NY because the company is present in NY with multiple engagements/ representations oversees. We will need to go after the company nationally and internationally to collect past invoices. What’s your strategy?

A: Not really that novel a case. You can sue. Stated account claims are simple. Not sure if there are defenses. It is an hourly fee. Collection is always an issue, but if you do nothing, you get nothing, and that is the worst case scenario.
