Litigation is something that all businesses in Washington work to avoid, but sometimes, there simply aren’t any other options. Breach of contract disputes, in particular, often lead to the courtroom. So, what are some basics about breach of contract business law disputes that you need to know?
Well, for starters, what exactly is a “breach” when it comes to contracts? A contract, in essence, is a set of promises between two parties. When it comes to businesses, contracts can be between the company and vendors, suppliers and even customers, for instance. Do a service, and I’ll pay you for it—that is a basic example of the purpose of a business contract. When one side or the other fails to live up to their promises, that is typically what is considered to be a “breach.”
If a breach of contract matter ends up in litigation, usually, it is because one side wants the other to perform as expected in the contract, or wants damages for the failure to perform as expected. Unfortunately, many business law disputes aren’t so simple to resolve. Litigation can become time-consuming and costly. If you are a business leader in Washington who is facing these types of issues, you’ll want to know your legal options.
