Breach of Contract
When a contract dispute disrupts your business, resolving the issue often requires a measured approach combined with an unwavering commitment to protecting your rights at trial if the matter fails to settle out of court. While it will often be in both parties’ best interests to reach an amicable resolution, if the circumstances warrant litigation, companies on both sides of commercial contract disputes must be fully prepared to argue their claims and defenses in the courtroom.

Allegations of Breach in Commercial Contract Litigation
A well-crafted contract should clearly delineate the parties’ respective rights and obligations. However, disagreements over the language of commercial contracts are common, and changes in circumstances can give rise to issues that were not anticipated at the time of a contract’s execution. Then, of course, there are clear contract breaches (both intentional and unintentional) – which are often no less challenging to resolve in light of the circumstances at hand.
Contract breaches can take any number of forms. But, frequently, commercial contract disputes will center on issues such as:
- Breach of confidentiality (non-disclosure)
- Breach of competitive restrictions (non-compete)
- Failure to meet deadlines for deliverables
- Failure to satisfy binding service level agreements (SLAs)
- Nonpayment for goods or services
- Nonperformance of contractual duties
- Ownership of intellectual property
