Surety Bond And Fidelity Bond Disputes

Fidelity and surety bonds are often required by local and state law. Other businesses rely on them to manage risk. When disputes arise surrounding these bonds, great amounts of money are often at stake. At Leritz & Plunkert, PC, in St. Louis, we defend sureties and principals throughout Missouri and Illinois during surety and fidelity disputes.

Defense Against Breach Of Contract Claims

Surety bonds are often used during construction projects to secure the rights of the parties. Unfortunately, construction projects rarely go smoothly.

It is important to consult with experienced attorneys who understand the complexities of these policies and each party's rights and responsibilities.

Over the years, we have successfully defended sureties and principals against a wide range of breach claims, including:

  • Commercial bonds, including court bonds, public official bonds, and license and permit bonds
  • Fidelity bonds protect businesses against loss from fraud or the wrongful acts of their employees, such as theft or embezzlement.

Government Contracts

Government contracts often require surety bonds on all construction work. Government construction projects are often large economic undertakings.
