Phoenix Breach of Agreement Lawyer Helps Resolve Contract Disputes for Businesses
Arizona firm handles conflicts over sales, service, supply and distribution transactions
Businesses depend on each other and their customers to keep operations running smoothly. Suppliers must provide goods to their distributors, and this requires supply and distribution deals between them. Meanwhile, retailers and service providers must sell goods and services to their customers. All of these relationships depend on a variety of agreements between the various parties. The skilled Arizona business litigators of Law Offices of Donald W. Hudspeth, P.C. in Phoenix understand the importance of enforcing these contracts effectively and have more than 20 years of experience helping businesses do so.
What types of violations justify a breach of contract claim?
Not every violation of a contract term is grounds for litigation. To qualify, the breach must be material, which is to say that it must deprive the other party of the heart of what it bargained for in the contract. In a sales, service or supply and distribution agreement, material breaches might include, among other things:
- Failure to pay the agreed upon price
- Failure to deliver the agreed upon goods or provide the agreed upon services
- Failure to provide the quality of goods and services sufficient to satisfy an express or implied warranty
- Where the contract provides that time is of the essence, the failure to deliver or provide goods or services or pay by the agreed upon deadline
It is not necessarily the case that a party must violate the express terms of the contract itself in order to be liable for breach of contract. Terms may be implied by the law or the parties’ past course of conduct. Whether you need to bring or defend against a breach of contract claim, we will provide skilled, knowledgeable representation.
How we help you initiate or defend against breach of contract lawsuits
If a business or customer materially breaches a contract with you, we can bring an action in court on your behalf to enforce the contract. In some cases, it may be appropriate for the court to compel the other party to perform the obligations specified within the agreement. However, if that isn’t possible or won’t make you whole, you might be entitled to recoup the damages you sustained as a result of the breach. We will examine your situation and the terms of the contract and seek the best relief available to you.
On the other hand, if you are defending against a claim that you violated an agreement, we will review the circumstances thoroughly and raise any available defenses supported by the evidence. For instance, we might be able to show that you didn’t actually breach the contract, the contract was impossible to perform or the plaintiff caused you to commit the breach.
