About Contracts and Disputes
In a contractual agreement, two or more parties promise to provide something of value in exchange for another. Promises of goods, money, or services are called legal consideration, and are enforceable by law. Binding contracts are usually in written form, but some verbal agreements are also enforceable.
During your initial consultation, Ms. Deakins can discuss possible courses of action, which may include direct negotiation, mediation, or arbitration.
Contract disputes arise over issues such as disagreements over terms, missed deadlines, the failure to pay or deliver a product or service, and failure to meet terms of a secondary agreement, such as a lease or loan document. Whether involving employment, business operations, or a major purchase, a breach of contract can bring substantial monetary losses, disruptions, and other complications.
Breach of Contract
If a person or business entity reneges on a contractual agreement, a plaintiff can pursue two main types of resolution: monetary damages and performance. Monetary damages are designed to provide reimbursement for financial losses, such as lost profits, caused by a breach. They can include foreseeable losses, legal fees, and even punitive damages in some cases. When monetary damages are not enough to remedy a breach of contract, there are other possible solutions. These can include a court order requiring the breaching party to perform the contractual promises, or cancelling the contract.
