A telephone system was...

A telephone system was installed by my company; about $8,000.00. No payment was received. After months, the company hired another firm to upgrade the system. Nothing was ever paid to my company. Is this conversion under NJ Law?.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Property question in NJ.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Nothing else.
Lawyer: DamienJD, Attorney replied 7 months ago

It would be a breach of contract. You provided a service and equipment, and did not receive payment for it. I am surprised there was not a security interest in the hardware by filing a UCC statement. In any event, it would be a breach of contract. Conversion is when someone takes property away from the proper owner for their own use.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

No chance to file the UCC because we were rushed to replace a failing telephone system. Our property is now used by this party for his own use.

Thank you for the additional information. You can also include the conversion cause of action in the complaint - meaning you can claim a breach of contract cause of action; and conversion as another cause of action. Also, there are other claims like unjust enrichment.

If you need anything further, just let me know.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
