Hopefully, having a contract in place offers you peace of mind about important terms related to the success of your business. When these contracts go wrong, you need a skilled Chicago Contract Attorney on your side.
Breach of contract can involve the following:
- Disputes over contract terms
- Disputes over intellectual property, such as theft of a trade secret
- Breach of fiduciary duty or violation of a non-compete clause
- Refusal to honor terms of contract
- Unexpected changes in circumstances that affect ability to carry out contract
Parties who wish to challenge an issue about a contract may have several options for recovery, including enforcing the contract on its terms, canceling the contract and suing for repayment of money expended, or suing for liquidated damages as specified in the contract.
In some cases, computing damages can be complicated. This is especially true when the non-breaching party suffers consequential damages — such as losing a contract with a third party because the goods received from the breaching party were late or defective.
