Types Of Breaches Of Contract We Handle
We frequently assist small and mid-sized businesses, as well as large corporations, with the following issues:
Minor breaches – This occurs when the agreed upon goods or services aren’t rendered by the agreed upon due date.
Material breaches – This type of breach of contract occurs when something different is delivered, and not the exact agreed upon goods and services.
Actual breaches – This occurs when one party outright refuses or fails to honor the contract.
Anticipatory breaches – This type of breach of contract occurs when one party informs the other or declares in advance that they won’t be honoring the contract.
Our New York City breach of contract lawyers help with a variety of contract types, including:
- Independent contractor agreements
- Non-disclosure agreements
- Commercial leases
- Equipment lease agreements
- Sales contracts
- Vendor contracts
- License agreements
- Master services agreements (MSA)
- Statements of work (SOW)
- And others!
What Constitutes A Contract Breach?
All contracts, in order to be enforceable, have several elements. There has to be an offer, and an acceptance: consideration (something of value promised to be exchanged): awareness and capacity (awareness that an agreement is being entered into, of each party’s own free will, when they have a clear understanding of what the contract entails); and legality.
In order for you to prove that a breach of contract occurred, you have to prove that a contract with these elements existed and that the defendant failed to uphold the requirements of the contract. If a claim is brought against you, you have to defend against these same proofs.
What If I’m Trapped In A Bad Contract?
One of the most common scenarios we hear is where clients enter into a contract that was perhaps poorly written, or that had ambiguous terms, and then later realize that it would be disadvantageous to continue; however, they can’t see a way out of it without being sued.
We can review the contract and circumstances under which you signed the contract to see if there is a way that our New York breach of contract lawyers can have the contract rescinded (reversed). We can find out if the other party may have misrepresented or concealed facts, or pressured you to sign, and if those arguments may lead to the contract being nullified. If that’s not possible, we’ll work to find creative and legally compliant workarounds that free you from your obligations!
