Contract Issues and Breaches of Contract

The lawyers at Warren Law are fierce advocates for our clients, especially in business-to-business disputes caused by breaches of contract. A breach of contract happens when one party fails to perform according to the terms of the contract.

To win a judgment for damages in a breach of contract case, you must prove that:

  • You had a legally binding contract in place,
  • You performed your part of the contract,
  • The other party failed to perform their part of the contract, and
  • You suffered harm as a result of their failure.

For example, you may have suffered a financial loss because a counterpart, vendor, or contractor failed to perform or execute their services as promised.

Contracts take many forms and cover all types of subjects – purchasing products; providing services; determining how a business will be formed, owned, and operated; and resolving how transactions such as loans or joint ventures will unfold over given periods of time. These agreements detail the legal boundaries to which all parties must adhere.

Additionally, a contract covers more than what’s expressly included in the terms or text.
