Types of Breach of Contract

There are many ways a contract can be breached, these include:

  • One party can simply fail to do what they have agreed to do;
  • The contract can be performed wrongly or negligently; or
  • The contract can be performed too late.

For parties who believe they may have a claim for breach of contract, or who have had a claim for breach of contract made against them, seeking legal advice should be the first priority.

We will take full details of both the contract itself and what has happened. We will look at the terms of the contract and determine how the law will apply. Our experts will then quickly identify and advise on key issues such as the likelihood of success, the categories of damages available, and the potential for alternatives to litigation.

Considerations will be given to the respective bargaining power of the parties, whether there is ambiguity, the business value of the contract and the loss suffered.

Resolving Contract Disputes

We work hard on behalf of our clients to try to resolve breach of contract disputes before the case goes to court.

The aim of damages is to compensate the injured party and put them in the same position as if the contract had been completed. There are several different categories of damages that could be applicable depending on the specific aspects of the claim. Usually through negotiation we can come to an agreeable situation for all parties.
