Bring A Breach Of Contract Claim Or Defend Against Such A Claim
Nearly all business transactions involve contracts. Through written and verbal contracts, businesses are formed and carry out their purposes, such as the sale of goods and services. Contracts are enforceable in various ways, including through breach of contract litigation.

What Breach Of Contract Claims Accomplish
In a breach of contract claim, a wronged party proves that another party violated an agreement. The agreement may have been between:
- Business partners
- Shareholders and business owners
- Businesses and external entities: customers, commercial landlords and others
A successful resolution from the plaintiff’s perspective may be one or more of the following (or other) legal remedies:
- Compensatory damages: Awarding the wronged party payment or restitution, putting them back in the position they were in before the contract existed
- Punitive damages: Imposing penalties above and beyond the dollar value of the alleged losses
- Specific performance: Compelling the wrongdoing party to do what the contract required
- Cancelation and restitution: Repaying whatever was spent or lost
