A contract is a formal document containing an agreement between two or more people, companies, or other entities – orally or in writing – and identifies actions or services that will be performed by either or both parties to fulfill the contract’s intended purpose. When either party fails to perform all or part of the contract, a breach of contract has taken place. Depending on the size and complexity of the contract, the issues of the breach may resolve expeditiously, or they could require litigation. In serious breaches, litigation may be the only avenue that will accomplish a resolution of the contract violation.
Resolving a breach of contract dispute involves many issues, most of which center on the loss or expected loss that comes as a result of the contract violation. Those losses may be immediate while others might continue well into the future.
