Breach of contract
A breach of contract in Fairfax County occurs when one of the parties of an active contract fails to uphold their duties in the contractual agreement or interferes with the other party’s ability to do the same.
This seems fairly straightforward but breach of contract can come in many different forms:
The type of legal action that can be taken is largely contingent on the parameters of the contract and the type of breach. Some forms of breach of contract will entitle the aggrieved party to collect damages, terminate the contract, and file a lawsuit.
Active contract litigation
It is not uncommon for a contract dispute to escalate into active contract litigation. During this time, each party will be represented by legal counsel and seek to resolve the dispute in court or through mediation or arbitration.
Contract litigation can be a tough time for both the plaintiff and defendant. There can be challenges to keep an active business running throughout the legal process. And sometimes, due to the nature of some contracts, finding an adequate resolution can be a lengthy endeavor.
The attorneys at Friedlander, Friedlander & Earman, P.C. do not believe in prolonging contract litigation. At all times, we strive to resolve the issues and protect our clients’ rights without incurring unnecessary legal fees.
