 Breach of contract actions

Regardless of the type or form of contract at issue, businesses rely on the contracts they execute to guide their ventures and commercial endeavors. Breach of contract essentially refers to the failure to fulfill the terms of a legally binding agreement. If you have suffered a serious financial loss as a result of an individual’s or a business’s failure to perform an agreed-upon service, provide agreed-upon goods, or pay for goods and services you have provided, you may be entitled to damages.
