Business & Contractual Disputes

If a contractual dispute arises concerning your company or business, you must get the dispute resolved as efficiently as possible with the best possible outcome for your interests.

Resolving these issues can be stressful and, of course, costly to both you and your company, you must go through the process of resolving the contract dispute firstly through mediation dispute resolution first. If this fails, then you need to have your case developed, and your legal strategy in place to ensure your rights are protected, and your case is won. Our goal is to resolve your dispute with as little impact on you personally and your company’s business. If you would like to talk to us about your case, we can offer you a once-off consultation to asses your case and advise you on your potential to win as well as the process you need to follow.

Breach Of Contract

A breach of contract can result in a successful claim for damages, along with other remedies. If you suspect you have suffered losses because of a breach of contract.

What is a contract?

A contract is a voluntary agreement between two or more people or entities and can be verbal or written. The terms of the contract may be implied, meaning they are set out in the law. Or the terms may be expressed, meaning they are agreed upon by the parties. Either way, a contract determines what is expected of each side.

In business, contracts are often more apparent. Terms and conditions may exist between a supplier and a retailer, and those T&Cs determine the contractual relationship between the parties.

What is a breach of contract?

A breach of contract is when the terms of a contract are broken.

Breach of contract advice

If you are party to a contract and the other side does not meet their obligation of the agreement, you may be entitled to make a civil claim.

You may believe that there has been a breach of contract because the intended or specified outcome or goal has not been achieved. However, it is not always clear cut. We can investigate the details of your case before advising whether your contract has been breached or not.

Not all breaches lead to legal action, as there are specific qualifying criteria. That is why it is best to speak to us as soon as you suspect something is amiss.

Suing for breach of contract

Where there has been a breach of contract, we will recommend the best approach to take to get the best outcome for you or your company’s interests. As part of the process and to comply with the mediation act 2017, it is essential to explore mediation options and negotiating with the other side. They may admit fault and offer a fair settlement, or you may both reach a compromise, therefore preventing the need for legal proceedings as it is in no one’s interest to go to court.

If mediation fails or is not an option, you could be in a position to sue the party or parties who committed the breach. There are various possible outcomes, but most typically, damages are awarded to reflect the losses that have been incurred.
