Contract law is vital to any livelihood, whether it is a college graduate taking on their first real-world job, which requires a contractual agreement, or seasoned industry titans who are exploring a new partnership, the terms and conditions of their obligations must be reviewed by an attorney.

How Can Ben Sternberg Help with a Breach of Contract in the State of California?

Companies and individuals sign business and personal contracts to ensure their financial interests are legally protected going forward. Whether it is an agreement with a contractor, a partnership contract, or a sale of goods covenant, the signatures on the paperwork itself allow for the enforcement of the terms.

Contract litigation is one of our specialized practice areas that allow our clients to find success after a contract’s terms are violated. A breach of contract lawsuit is a serious matter in Los Angeles, but unfortunately not an uncommon occurrence.

Our lawyers understand how a breach affects the livelihoods of those who imposed the contract and focuses on mitigating their losses immediately upon the breach’s occurrence.

What Is Considered a Breach of Contract in California?

Simply put, a breach of contract occurs when one party fails to uphold their side of the agreement. There are countless ways to breach a contract, and when a person does not fulfill the specified terms of their arrangement, they will be held legally liable.

Some breach of contract examples can include, but are not limited to:

  • Failure to deliver goods or services
  • Failure to complete a project or job
  • Failure to pay on time
  • Providing an inferior good or service

Determining whether a breach occurred depends on the terms of the agreement, and by comparing one party’s performance to the obligations listed within the contract.

Typically, the severity of a breach of contract is explained in four ways:

  • Minor breach: Any immaterial breach where there has been substantial performance, but the full terms of the contract were not upheld
  • Material/substantial breach: One party’s failure in performing the terms of the contract, which allows the other party to compel them to proceed, or collect damages
  • Fundamental breach: May allow for the right to stop performing, or the termination of the contract
  • Anticipatory breach: An unequivocal indication that the party is not going to perform, even if the terms of the contract have not yet been violated

These examples are simplified, and only the terms of your agreement will justify a type of breach before the law. Reclaiming the terms of the contract, or seeking financial restitution, will depend solely upon the specific contract.

Contract disputes can be very expensive and should never threaten the viability of your business or personal livelihood but provide you an opportunity to persevere. At the Law Offices of Benjamin N. Sternberg, A.P.C. our contract attorneys will provide superior representation and create the legal relationships based on terms that meet your objectives.
