Pursuing Or Defending Against Breach Of Contract Claims
Contracts are legally binding agreements. They are at the foundation of almost every successful business. They lay the groundwork for operations, transactions, employment and virtually any relationship within the business or with other parties.
When contract disputes occur, they can be costly and time-consuming to address. Trusted legal counsel is critical for addressing those disputes and strategizing the path forward.

Remedies For Breaches
We can help you assess the right kind of remedy to seek for the breach, which may include:
- Specific performance: Legally compelling the other party to uphold their end of the bargain
- Rescission: Undoing or cancelling the contract
- Restitution: Restoring the wronged party to their prior position to avoid conferring an unjust benefit on the breaching party
- Damages: Compensation for your losses resulting from the other party’s breach
Damages can take several forms, including:
- Compensatory, which are designed to make you financially whole and reimburse you for your losses.
- Liquidated damages, which are a specified amount established in the contract in the event of a breach.
- Punitive damages, which are designed to punish the breaching party for wrongdoing.
Not all of these damages may be available in every case. Much depends on the terms of the contract and the unique circumstances. Our lawyers can help you identify which types and amount of damages to pursue. We are skilled at building strong claims for damages.
