Breach of Contract Claims
Commercial litigation is a complicated process. It often involves multiple parties looking to resolve their dispute through legal means. Typically, commercial litigation includes a business and a customer, employee, insurer, or another company.
When you go into business with another party, you need to come to an agreement about the responsibilities of each party. That agreement is often finalized through a contract. This contract is valid until all parties honor their obligations or a party breaches the contract. When there is a breach of contract, things become complicated quickly.
In these claims, one or more party fails to live up to the agreement within a contract. When this breach occurs, the other party can seek to enforce the contract. However, these cases can be tricky. A host of factors can complicate breach of contract claims from glaring oversight, ambiguous language, or out of date and irrelevant content.
It takes an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to analyze the contract in question to pinpoint the breach.

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 their duties in accordance with the contract, or fails to meet the responsibilities of the contract according to schedule, they have 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.
Contracts are legal documents that stipulate the responsibilities each party has to one another in an agreement. When this contract is breached, parties can take legal action against the offenders.
