Understanding breach of contract

Breach of contract is a fairly common occurrence in the world of business. A breach occurs when someone violates the terms of an agreement. A breach can occur at any time after the creation of a contract. Either party can cause a breach through its actions or inaction. Some breaches are justified under the law and others are not. Some breaches are small. In these cases, the parties may be able to continue performance under their agreement. Breaches that are serious enough to disrupt the entire purpose of the contract may be considered material breaches, rendering the contract void. Breaches occur for many reasons. We represent clients in all types of breach of contract cases, including:

  • Failure to pay for a product or services
  • Failure to deliver a product or services
  • Missed deadlines
  • Failure to meet the terms of a secondary agreement, such as a lease, mortgage or loan document
  • Disputes over terms in the contract
  • Disputes between partners or workers
  • Work stoppages

Our attorneys work to settle or litigate your case to minimize your exposure.

Representing clients who have been accused of a breach

In every contract dispute, at least one company will find itself on the defense. Our AR attorneys represent clients who have wrongfully been accused of breaching a contract. In many cases, actions that would normally constitute a breach are allowed because of something the other party did first. We also represent clients who have breached their contracts purposely in order to pursue alternatives. This is known as “efficient breach.” The law does not seek to punish those who breach contacts. Rather, the law’s aim is to make each party whole. This might mean restoring any money the company lost or potentially compensating them for the profits they expected to earn. We help clients in this situation develop defenses for their actions and skillfully defend their rights in court.
