Breach of Contract Primer
Most transactions and business dealings are governed by a written contract. Many factors lead to disputes based upon contracts, including ambiguity in contract language, emergence of new circumstances that affect how a party interprets particular provisions, inadequate partial performance of contractual duties, inability to perform or bad faith, or intentional non-performance. In most states, a breaching party may be required in a successful breach of contract lawsuit to pay compensatory damages or may be required by a court to perform obligations under the contract. Additionally, under certain circumstances, a non-performing party may be required in breach of contract litigation to pay attorney's fees and litigation expenses to the non-breaching party. Another remedy available in some breach of contract litigation is "rescission," which is legal dissolution of the contract with money returned and further obligations under the contract excused, returning the parties to their respective pre-contract positions. Potential remedies and the types of damages that may be recoverable for a breach of contract are often critical to a realistic and reliable appraisal of the case and determination of appropriate litigation strategy.
