Breach Of Contract

If you have entered into a contract with another party and believe that they have breached that contract, engaging the assistance of a lawyer will be invaluable. By carefully listening to your circumstances and examining the contract in dispute, your lawyer will be able to advise you on what kind of action you may take.

There are many different types of breaches to contracts and firstly you will need to establish what type of breach it is.

The different types of Contract Breaches are:

Material Breach – This is where breach is significant. This is where there is where a party fails to perform part or all of their contractual obligations.

Anticipatory Breach – This is where a breach has not yet occurred, but will occur. An example of this is where one party notifies the other that they are unable to fulfill part of their obligation such as late delivery or partial delivery of goods or services.

Minor Breach – A minor breach is as the name suggest minor. Although many or consistent minor breaches may constitute a material breach.

There are many ways to seek a remedy if a party breaches or intends to breach a contract such as:

  • Repudiation of the Contract
  • Compensation
  • Terminating the Contract
  • Injunction

Any of these avenues have to be carefully considered before you take action. If the action you take in response to the other parties breach is not right then you could be sued or counter-sued for a breach.

A litigation lawyer who is experienced in handling contract disputes will work with you to establish the merits of your case and give you advice on your legal options.

In some cases where urgent injunction is required our legal team are able to act quickly and decisively.

In other situations where time allows you can take a different approach and negotiate and try other avenues rather than take a firm litigious approach.

Depending on the circumstances, your loss and the time frame we will provide extensive advice and options on how you resolve the dispute.

We look to achieve our clients outcomes in the best and quickest time frame possible.

Branden L, Ravenhall

Excellent Service. PCL did a great job advising me about my rights and protecting my name and business goodwill. I can absolutely recommend this very professional service.

Brett Wilson/Glen Waverley

If I had of gone to another law firm that was cheaper I may have saved many thousands of dollars but as it turns out I may have lost a lot more than that upon settlement. Using a firm such as PCL lawyers I had the peace of mind that each issue as it arose was dealt with in a very matter of fact way and to the letter of the law.
