If you have been sued for breach of contract
or have received a threatening letter or notice of a breach of contract lawsuit
, consult with our Chicago breach of contract attorneys immediately. Not only do we represent plaintiffs in breach of contract cases, but we also represent defendants being sued for breach of contract and related claims.
A “breach” occurs when one party to the contract fails to fulfill his or her end of the bargain under the contract. Depending on the specifics of a particular contract, a breach might occur, for example, by failing to perform on time or in accordance with the term of the agreement. A breach can be a failure to act and a breach can also include acting in certain ways that violate the contract.
Once a breach happens, one or both parties might decide to litigate the contract claim to have the contract terms enforced or to pursue damages for the harm caused by the alleged breach.
Once we consult with you regarding the breach of contract, we will be better able to determine your potential liability—i.e. what the damages could be and what you might be required for the obligations of the contract to be satisfied, if possible. If you are a defendant, we will also discuss the potential of minimizing or reducing those damages and/or obligations.
