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
