How to Handle a Breach of Contract Situation

33% of all civil court cases are for breach of contract. If you believe an employee, customer, vendor or other party has breached a contract with your business, you should take the following steps. 

  • Try to resolve the dispute by speaking with the other party in a firm yet respectful tone
  • If the problem persists, send a formal demand letter that references the contract
  • If you still get no resolution, you may choose to file a lawsuit for breach of contract

A small business plan from LegalShield allows you to have a lawyer help you will all of the above steps. You get unlimited consultation with a business lawyer and they can even write demand letters and make phone calls to settle contract disputes before going filing a lawsuit.

Join LegalShield now and be on the phone with an contract lawyer in 4 hours or less after initial contact.

Filing a Breach of Contract Lawsuit

Sometimes, filing a lawsuit is the only way to get the other party to honor their obligations under your contract. Here are the most common breach of contract cases.

  • Failure to deliver goods or services
  • Failure to fully complete a job
  • Failure to pay on time (or at all)
  • Providing inferior goods or services
  • Failure to give proper notice
  • Breach of confidentiality or non-compete clauses

All lawsuits start by filing a formal complaint in the proper court of jurisdiction that references the contract between the parties, the specific breach(s) and the damages you are seeking. 

Filing a lawsuit can be stressful. The good news is you can work with an experienced breach of contract litigator to help you file your case correctly and develop winning arguments.
