When you go into business with another company, you almost always have to come to some form of agreement or finalize a legally binding contract. This contract exists to protect all parties that agreed to and signed the contract. Typically, the contracts are void after all parties have accomplished their responsibilities to one another.
However, in many instances, one party fails to live up to expectations or completely breaches the contract, often putting the other party in a difficult situation. These business disputes can be difficult for businesses or parties that have not experienced such a problem, often impacting their business operations.

What is a Breach of Contract?
A business contract exists to ensure that all parties involved agree to and uphold their obligations. Whenever one party fails to fulfill the agreement, does not complete the duties in accordance with the contract, or fails to meet the responsibilities of the contract according to schedule, that party has committed a breach of contract.
If a breach has occurred or the parties involved believe that a breach has occurred, legal action can be taken. Often, these parties take legal action if they cannot reach a resolution on their own. The parties can then file a breach of contract claim against the offending party to uphold the contract or pursue compensation.
When one party breaches a contract, the other parties can then collect a relief (also referred to as remedy). The remedies they can recover include specific performance, cancellation and restitution, and damages.
