About Breach of Contract

A contract legally binds two parties to an agreement. If both parties understand that the contract binds them to certain duties and responsibilities and one party didn’t meet their requirements, then a breach of contract has taken place.

Four main types of contract breaches are commonly committed:

  • Minor Breach: This breach breaks an aspect of the contract, but not the whole of it. This directly contrasts the material breach.
  • Material Breach: This breach nullifies the contract in whole. The business owner can file a breach of contract to cancel the contract or sue the other party.
  • Fundamental Breach: This breach causes detriment to the other party and can warrant the contracts termination or a lawsuit.
  • Anticipatory Breach: This breach occurs when a party declares they will not hold up their portion of the contract before it actually happens.

If you or your business require assistance in settling a contractual dispute, trust our experienced contract lawyers at Clark Fountain to effectively fight on your behalf.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a contractual dispute?

A contractual dispute arises when two parties involved in a contract disagree about the terms, obligations, or performance of the contract.


When should I seek legal assistance for a contractual dispute?

It’s advisable to seek legal assistance when you encounter difficulties in resolving a contractual dispute through negotiation or mediation, or when facing potential litigation.


What types of contractual breaches exist?

There are four main types of breaches: minor breach, material breach, fundamental breach, and anticipatory breach. Each has different implications for contract enforcement and remedies available.


How do I know if a breach of contract has occurred?

A breach of contract occurs when one party fails to fulfill its obligations under the contract without a legal justification. This could include failure to deliver goods or services, non-payment, or violation of terms.


What are the potential consequences of a breach of contract?

Consequences may include financial damages, termination of the contract, specific performance (compelling the breaching party to fulfill their obligations), or other remedies specified in the contract or under the law.


Should I try to resolve the dispute through negotiation or litigation?

The approach depends on various factors such as the nature of the dispute, the relationship between the parties, and the desired outcome. Negotiation and mediation can be cost-effective and less adversarial, while litigation may be necessary for enforcing rights and obtaining compensation.


How can a contract lawyer help me in a dispute?

A contract lawyer can provide legal advice, assess the strength of your case, negotiate on your behalf, draft legal documents, represent you in court, and pursue remedies to resolve the dispute in your favor.


What should I consider before entering into a contract to prevent disputes?

It’s essential to clearly define the terms and obligations, anticipate potential risks and contingencies, include dispute resolution mechanisms (such as arbitration or mediation clauses), and ensure the contract complies with applicable laws.


What evidence should I gather to support my contractual dispute case?

Relevant evidence may include the contract itself, correspondence between the parties, invoices, receipts, records of performance or non-performance, witness statements, and any other documentation demonstrating the breach or damages suffered.
