Warrenton, MO asked in Arbitration / Mediation Law for Missouri

Q: Can I sue my publishing complany since they have breeched their contract? They're 6 mo. past their schedule.

I have a publishing contract that has not allowed me to publish with anyone else during this time. The contract was signed january 18th, 2021 and the company had 220 maximum days to complete the contract. They have done zero promotion of the book, as it is in the contract, have not even sent me the illustrations aside from the book cover. I have sent several emails and am getting nothing back from them.

A: I'm sorry your question remains open for a month. A Missouri attorney could advise best, but any attorney would likely want to review the terms of the contract before offering meaningful guidance. You could reach out to Missouri attorneys to discuss. This is posted under Arbitration/Mediation. If that is because you have an arbitration clause, then it's possible arbitration is the prescribed route rather than the lawsuit you mention. A Missouri attorney would be able to advise more meaningfully after seeing the contract. Good luck
