We are aware it may heavily damage your reputation, create difficulties meeting the demands of your customers, and even result in a substantial loss of profits.

In the event you suffer from a breach of contract, it is of paramount importance you seek expert legal advice.

The sooner you establish your legal standing, the faster you can resolve the issue.

How can a contractual dispute arise?

Occasionally, a party that has formed a contractual relationship may breach its obligations, which can result in needing experienced contract dispute solicitors. Contractual disputes can arise for many reasons, including:

  • Breach of contract – a party may have breached a condition of the contract which means the purpose of the agreement can no longer be fulfilled
  • Fraud – a party may have made assurances or agreements which you relied upon, and persuaded you to enter the arrangement, but those are now clear to have been misrepresentations
  • Frustration – an uncontrollable and unforeseen event may occur, which means the purpose of the contract cannot be fulfilled, and this has put you, and potentially other parties subject to the contract, at a loss
  • Technical understanding – a party may disagree over the meaning of a technical term in the contract which may create problems within and relationship

Can contract dispute solicitors help with resolution?

In the event of a breach of contract, the party that has suffered a loss or harm, as a result, can usually claim many remedies. These include:

  • Damages – this monetary award is designed to put the injured party into the position they were in before the contract
  • Injunction – a court can order a party to either perform an action or refrain from performing an action
  • Specific performance – a party must perform a positive action to rectify an issue
  • Rescission – one party is allowed to effectively cancel the contract, and everybody affected is returned to the position they were before it was agreed
