Breach of Contract
Business and Corporate lawyers
Hoover Kacyon’s business lawyers understand that a breach of contract is one of the most common business disputes. With our experience and knowledge of corporate law, Hoover Kacyon’s lawyers will work closely with our clients to ensure the best possible outcome. Typically, a party must perform pursuant to his or her business agreement unless both parties to the business agreement consent to a change in contractual terms. A party can either be a business, executive, aspiring entrepreneur or simply an individual. Any deviation from the terms of the business agreement could be deemed a contractual breach. The party that deviates from the business agreement can often times be liable for damages and the lawyers at Hoover Kacyon, LLC have the experience and credentials to determine if such a deviation has taken place. Many contracts or business agreements are written down, but some can be oral contracts or agreements. Regardless of the type of contract, Hoover Kacyon’s business lawyers will work with our client to determine if there is a deviation, regardless of the deviation being intentional or accidental.
If you believe a breach of contract has taken place, ask the following questions: Did a party to the business agreement do something that violates a term of that business agreement? Did a party refuse to perform its obligations under the contract? Did a party act (or fail to act) in such a manner that it makes it impossible for the other party to perform under the terms of the contract? The fundamental issue in a breach of contract dispute is the intent of the parties. The intent of the parties sets out the parties’ expectations to the business agreement, the extent of the parties’ duties and obligations, how the parties have allocated the risks of the transaction, and what the consequences of the breach of contract will be.
In order to prevail on a breach of contract claim, certain criteria must be shown. It is best to contact a business lawyer at Hoover Kacyon, LLC, for an initial consultation to determine if it is necessary to take the appropriate next steps.
