Breach of Contract Litigation

No matter what type of business you run, you undoubtedly depend largely on a variety of contracts to be successful. These contracts can range from employee contracts to service contracts with other businesses, vendors, and subcontractors. A good contract strives to protect both parties’ interests and ensure that the working relationship and requirements are clearly defined. When a contract is not honored by one of these parties, this can put your business in financial jeopardy.

When a breach of contract impedes the success of your business, you may be able to file a lawsuit to seek compliance of the contract and/or damages. The business lawyers at Kelley/Uustal have successfully represented companies, corporations, small business owners, and individuals throughout the country who have been involved in a variety of contract disputes, including:

  • Disputes over provided services
  • Breach of contract regarding material and supply orders
  • Contractor breach of contracts
  • Employment breach of contract
  • Marketing and advertising service disputes
  • Real estate business contract disputes
  • Property disputes
  • Business to business contract disputes
  • Tortious interference
  • And more

Proving Breach of Contract

In order to successfully prove a breach of contract dispute, you and your legal team will need to establish the following elements beyond a reasonable doubt:

  • The Existence of a Valid Contract—if you entered into a legally binding contract with another business, you will need to produce a written copy of this contract with signatures from both parties. There are times when a verbal contract may also be considered valid.
  • Breach of this Contract Occurred—you will need to bring evidence that the other party failed to uphold their end of the contract.
  • Damages were Sustained—in order to recover damages, you must show that your company sustained financial damage as a result of this breach of contract. This could be in the form of lost customers, reduced profits, or direct material losses.

Every breach of contract dispute is different. That’s why the attorneys at Kelley/Uustal spend our time, energy, and resources understanding all angles of the dispute and your business. We review the language of all contracts closely, so we can protect your company’s rights throughout the legal process. Our attorneys have extensive experience in all forms of commercial litigation, and we prepare every case as if it is going to trial.

This allows us protect your interests and your business’ future.
