What Is A Breach Of Contract ?
A contract is a legally enforceable agreement between two or more parties. Each party to a contract may make a promise to another (or others) to perform certain acts, such as to supply certain goods or services or to pay a fee in exchange. If one party fails to perform the contract as promised while the other party has fulfilled all his own duties under the contract, the innocent party is entitled to a legal claim. Our firm can assist you to enforce your rights under the agreement and have your dispute resolved or determined by the Court.
What Relief Can I Get ?
You may be entitled to a rescission of the contract i.e. to treat the contract as if it had not existed and to be put back to the position before the contract was made. Alternatively, specific performance may be ordered i.e. an order to compel the defaulting party to carry out his part of the contract. If you wish to prevent the defaulting party from carrying out some act to your detriment, an injunction may also be applied for in Court. Lastly, damages or an account of profits wrongfully earned may also pleaded for in your case in Court.
