Breach of Contract
Businesses enter into contracts and agreements daily, and these contracts that you sign are the cornerstone of your business relationship. When those relationships break down, it can become a very messy legal situation.
Under California law, a breach of contract occurs when one party to the contract fails to fulfill a legal duty specified in the contract. Litigation may be the only way to resolve the situation when someone breaches a viable contract or agreement. Depending on your situation, legal remedies you may pursue if another party’s breach causes damages to you include:
- Monetary damages – The non-breaching party can recover monetary damages for actual, provable losses that have resulted from the breaching party’s failure to uphold their end of the agreement.
- Specific performance – In some situations, the non-breaching party may sue for “specific performance,” which means compelling the breaching party to perform the contractual obligations they ignored.
- Declining to fulfill your end of the agreement – The non-breaching party may also have the right not to fulfill their end of the agreement if the other party to the contract has not upheld their legal duties.
The Law Offices of Devon K. Roepcke negotiates contracts and commercial agreements on behalf of our clients to try to settle without needing to go to court. However, we are also more than prepared to fight for you in court if the other party is not willing to settle.
We also handle shareholder disputes. Corporate structures can give rise to strains in the relationships between the shareholders who own the company and the officers and directors who operate it. In short, shareholder disputes are disagreements among shareholders and/or others in the company about the governance of the business or about the company’s operations and finances. Shareholder disputes can be very complex, and the implications for the future of the company can be significant.
