Breach of Contract

The attorneys of The Jackson Law Firm, P.A. are prepared to assist you in a variety of business disputes.  Often such disputes arise in the context of a breach of a business contract.  A breach of contract action is one in which a binding agreement or bargained-for promise involving the performance of a service or provision of a product is not honored by one or more of the parties to the contract.  Thus, a breach occurs when one or more parties to the agreement fail to fulfill the stated responsibilities under the contract.  A breach of contract is a type of civil wrong for which the judicial remedy is monetary damages.  In those instances where the failure to perform cannot be adequately cured by monetary damages, the court may resort to an equitable remedy.  Courts achieve “equity” by fashioning a remedy in order to place the parties in as good a position as they would have occupied if the breach of contract had not occurred, such as entering an injunction against specified conduct or compelling specific performance of conduct by the breaching party.

In the business context, a breach of contract may occur in any number of scenarios relative to, for example, customers, suppliers, contractors, governmental agencies, employees,  etc. (Elise: make the word employees a link that takes the person to the “Employment Disputes” subsection)  The attorneys of The Jackson Law Firm, P.A. will meet with you to discuss any claims or defenses you may have in a breach of contract action or the potential risk or damages that could arise in anticipation of a breach.

We encourage you to contact our firm to discuss your options regarding your breach of contract matter.
