What Constitutes an Actionable Breach of Contract?
Just as how personal injury claims must reach a certain amount of damages before a case can become valid, breach of contract disputes must involve particular violations for it to become actionable. Our business litigation lawyers can review the details of your claim to determine, first and foremost, if the breach of contract in question is actually extensive enough to warrant a lawsuit in pursuit of financial damages your business has suffered. Additionally, we will want to examine the situation from multiple angles to decide if a lawsuit is the best option for you. In some cases, mediation and conference room negotiations can work wonders were forced litigation cannot.
|Contracts that may be breached and require our attention include:|
|FRANCHISE AGREEMENTS||NONDISCLOSURE AGREEMENTS|
|ACQUISITION AND SALE CONTRACTS||JOINT VENTURE AGREEMENTS|
|SUPPLY AND THIRD-PARTY CONTRACTS||VENDOR AGREEMENTS|
How Can a Contract Be Breached?
Business contracts are intricate by nature. Any portion of your business that could be questioned needs to be addressed in an initial contract to avoid misinterpretation and damages. However, among all the numerous forms of contracts, there remains only four primary contract breach types, which apply for both individual contracts, small business contracts, and contracts between major corporations.
- Partial: A minor violation of a contract that triggers only financial damages; often times a partial breach will not be significant enough to even warrant a lawsuit.
- Material: A violation of a business contract that will cause financial damage and eventual hardship, or lost time and effort.
- Fundamental: A violation that has obviously counteracted the purpose of the contract or preexisting business law.
- Anticipatory: Canceling a contract in anticipation of another party’s breach; must be backed by clear reasoning and fear of significant loss.
