Consequences of a Breach of Contract


One of the most common disruptions to a business is when there is a breach of contract. When a contract is part of a business deal, you must intrinsically understand the conditions before signing your name or business to a legal document. Otherwise, you may unknowingly breach the contract and invite a host of legal consequences.

In case of a breach of contract, the non-breaching person must decide how to respond and may pursue financial compensation, sue the other party to complete the obligation, or fail to keep up his or her part of the agreement.

What Constitutes a Breach of Contract?

A lawful business contract establishes obligations between two individuals or companies and dictates both parties to uphold their end of the bargain. An official breach of contract occurs when either side fails to maintain their promises as stipulated in the agreement. These failures can range from minor to absolutely devastating to your business, which is why our firm, Semelsberger Kaelin, LLP, believes in holding irresponsible individuals or companies accountable for any agreements they break.

Possible Defenses

There are unique situations in which the offending party will not be held to the same standard of breach of contract. One of the strongest defenses is proving these requirements could not be fulfilled for a legitimate, lawful reason. There must be a legal justification for failing to complete what was expected upon signing the contract.
