What Is At Issue In Your Contract Dispute?

When one party fails to perform the terms of a contract, breach of contract litigation can ensue. Breach of contract disputes can be hotly contested, and the terms of the agreement often determine the outcome of litigation.

There are usually three main issues in a breach of contract dispute. First, the terms of the contract must be interpreted and the rights and responsibilities of each party clearly defined. The second step of the process is to look at the facts to determine whether a breach has, in fact, occurred. Finally, if there was a breach, damages need to be assessed.

Many contracts are complex industry-specific legal instruments that may require the use of experts to interpret terms of art and the true meaning of the language used.

Concerned that a noncompete agreement was violated? We can counsel you on how to respond to concerns about noncompetes effectively.

At Barker | Cook, we have a wide network of business professionals. Drawing upon these experts, we are able to find the true interpretation of a contractual agreement to determine whether a breach has taken place and, if so, the appropriate legal response.

In the case that a breach has occurred, monetary damages may be available to place the injured party in the position he or she would be in had the breach not occurred.
