Preparing for What Comes After a Breach of Contract

Contracts are a staple in the world of business. They are entered into by individual parties, companies, subcontractors, real estate developers, and really anyone trying to see a project to its completion or attempting to garner a positive and fruitful professional partnership. However, not every contract is fulfilled in the way the parties intend it to be. Sometimes one party fails to hold up their end of the bargain, or the contract is breached in some other way that ruins the original intent of the deal.

A contract can be breached in myriad ways, so it is difficult to outline exactly what an individual or business could do when they are involved with a breach of contract. But there are a few things to expect and prepare for in all cases.

The first is that there will likely be language in that contract that dictates how a breach of contract is handled. You could abide by this contract’s provisions and utilize those directions to solve your breach of contract. However, if that is unsatisfactory, you could take legal action. A lawsuit could yield compensation in the form of damages that one company requests as a result of the breach of contract.

Damages aren’t the only thing that can constitute a legal “remedy” with a breach of contract though. Specific performance, where the breaching party’s court-ordered performance of duty under the contract, can be enforced. Cancellation of the deal and restitution in light of the contract breach is also possible.

Client Reviews
Mr. Cai Is a Diligent Attorney. My sister and I were defendants in a civil litigation case. We hired James Cai and his law firm, SAC Attorneys LLP. Mr. Cai is a diligent attorney and responded to our questions in a timely fashion. He and his staff were very helpful in keeping us informed of the proceedings of the case and in explaining each step. Mr. Cai is also very conscientious of fees and costs, and avoided unnecessary charges. The results of the Summary Adjudication sided with us. The Court Trial resulted in the “Final Statement of Decision” and “Judgment after Court Trial” overwhelmingly siding with us. Cynthia F.
I Am Truly Impressed. After spending a significant amount of time, money and efforts with my previous counsel at a larger law firm without getting meaningful results, I transferred my employment matter to SAC Attorneys LLP. The attorneys there were able to understand the complex situations of my case and put together an aggressive litigation strategy. We were able to file a compelling complaint within a week and forced the opposing party, which was represented by one of the largest law firms in California, to make a substantial settlement offer shortly thereafter. I am truly impressed by the no nonsense and results oriented approach by SAC Attorneys LLP attorneys. A job well done! X. Gao
They Took Time to Understand Our Technology. I am the founder of a bioinformatics start-up in the Silicon Valley and chose SAC Attorneys LLP as our corporate counsels. Their attorneys have great experience with high tech start-ups and were able to offer a highly competitive service plan while not sacrificing a bit of their quality of services. They took time to understand our technology and provided value added services by introducing investors and job candidates to us. We regard our attorneys at SAC Attorneys LLP not only as our legal advisors but also our venture partners. Dr. Pete S.
