Breach of Contract

Everything you do to run your business is based on some type of contract with another party. Whether written or oral, dealing with a potential breach of contract issue can be a big headache for your business. If you are dealing with another party not holding up their end of your contract, working with an experienced breach of contract attorney can help ensure that you get the results you need. But first, let’s take a look at some of the basics around this ever important legal document.

 

What Constitutes A Breach of Contract in Pasadena?

A contract is an enforceable agreement between parties to do something. Just like a contract can be very simple or extremely complex, the same can be said for a breach of contract. When one party breaches a contract it essentially means that they did not do what they were legally obligated to do under the contract. In many situations, both parties accuse each other of breaching the contract and that is often when things can get very messy.

 

Types of Breach of Contract

A breach of contract is really unique to the nature of the contract itself. Some common types of breach of contract include:

  • Non-payment
  • Non-performance
  • Confidentiality issues
  • Non-compete issues

 

Recovering from Breach of Contract

Contracts are legally enforceable agreements. What this means for you is that when someone breaks their part of the agreement, you have a variety of legal remedies available to you with the objective of making as if the breach never happened. The two most common types of remedies are:

  • Performance: In some cases, you can compel the other party do what they were supposed to do in the contract
  • Damages: Both consequential (the indirect losses incurred as a result of the breach) and actual damages (direct losses incurred as the result of the breach)
