Oklahoma City Breach of Contract Lawyers
Experienced & Reputable Employment Attorneys Ready to Serve
Contracts are binding legal agreements and, if either side violates its terms, a breach of contract dispute can arise. In many cases, these disputes occur when a party to the contract either makes a mistake or has misunderstood one or more of the outlined terms. When these disputes then proceed to the legal process, they involve the issues of enforceability, reasonableness, and due consideration.
At Mazaheri Law Firm, our Oklahoma City breach of contract attorneys know the importance of a mutually-beneficial agreement between parties working together in the business world. Contractual parties can include anyone with whom a business enterprise has made a written agreement, such as employees, clients, customers, tenants, vendors, suppliers, or others. For business owners, a breach of contract can seriously disrupt your operation and threaten your livelihood. They involve a type of breakdown in the business relationship that calls for creative legal solutions to resolve them as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our firm has the legal skills and problem-solving abilities needed to help you resolve your disputes whether through informal or formal negotiation strategies or through litigation in civil court.
When either party fails to conform to any of the terms of a written contract, it sets the stage for a breach of contract. The best way to avoid this is to ensure that your business and employment contracts are thorough, clear, comprehensive, and that they provide a path for resolution should either side fail to perform its obligations. Our firm can provide representation in negotiation, drafting, and reviewing contracts at the early phase of contractual matters to help prevent future problems. However, should a breach of contract occur later in the relationship, our firm may be able to help you resolve the issue through various methods, such as mediation, arbitration, or a lawsuit.
Breaches of contract can occur in all types of situations and business relationships, such as:
- Employment disputes. These can include breach of confidentiality, breach of conduct, breach of non-compete agreement, breach of severance contract, commission disputes, breach of executive compensation packages, and more. Our firm can represent both employers and employees in such matters.
- Partnership disputes.
- Shareholder disputes.
- Breach of vendor or sub-contractor contract.
- Breach of contract with customers for goods and services.
- Landlord-tenant lease breaches.
- Breach of real estate contracts.
- Breach of intellectual property contracts.
- Other financial contract disputes.
Breaches of contract generally are divided into two types, an “actual” breach and an “anticipatory” breach. An actual breach occurs when one party fails outright to adhere to a term or terms as set forth in the contract. An anticipatory breach occurs when one party communicates in advance that it will not deliver on a term or condition of the contract.
Remedies for Breach of Contract
In general, the remedies for a breach of contract include:
- A party takes steps to have the terms of the contract enforced. This can be done through what is generally known as “specific performance.”
- A party takes steps to be financially compensated for any financial harm suffered. This can involve compensatory, punitive, nominal, or liquidated damages.
- A party takes steps to have the contract canceled after which it may sue for restitution.
