A contract, whether written or oral, lies at the heart of every business transaction. A contract dispute may arise in interpreting the terms of a contract, or when one party fails to perform according to the terms of a contract, which is referred to as a breach of contract. For breach of contract, the non-breaching party may be entitled to recover compensation, force the other party to perform, or seek other appropriate remedies.
Some examples of breach of contract include failing to properly complete a job, substituting inferior goods, completing a job behind schedule without justification, and failing to honor a non-compete agreement or other type of employment contract.
There are defenses to a breach of contract action, and specific rules apply to determine what type of evidence is allowed to prove the validity or proper interpretation of the contract. Our commercial litigation attorneys understand how to effectively assert a business’s rights in contract disputes, always seeking the best opportunity for a favorable outcome or recovery.
