RECOVERY FROM BREACH OF CONTRACT

When a party to a contract fails to perform, he damages the other business. This damage often goes beyond the immediate inconvenience of getting less than promised by the contract. The breach can also cost you future profits if you are unable to serve your clients as a result. There are a variety of remedies that provide either monetary damages or equitable relief, such as:


  • Compensatory damages  Reimbursement for immediate monetary loss.


  • Consequential and incidental damages  Compensation for additional foreseeable losses caused by the breach.


  • Attorney fees and costs  Amounts available only if the contract expressly states they are recoverable.


  • Liquidated damages  Amounts specified in the contract that are payable for particular breaches, such as late or substandard performance.


  • Specific performance  Court order requiring the breaching party to fulfill the terms of the contract.


  • Punitive damages  Penalty for a party’s objectionable behavior, meant to punish the breaching party and discourage other parties from acting in a similar manner.


  • Rescission  Cancellation of the contract, with both sides excused from further performance and payments made under the contract returned.


  • Reformation  Change in the terms of the contract when the court believes there was an honest misunderstanding by the parties about what was to be performed.


As your advocate, I am determined to help you achieve the best legal remedy for your situation.

AFFORDABLE ALTERNATIVES TO A CIVIL SUIT

The cost of traditional litigation can easily exceed the amount of the contract. Fortunately there are various means of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), including mediation and arbitration, which are less costly and quicker than civil lawsuits, but can deliver the same remedies. I have successfully represented clients in arbitration and mediation hearings, and have settled lawsuits prior to trial, saving my clients expenses and getting their businesses back on track.
