San Antonio Breach of Contract Attorney

Atascosa County contract dispute litigation attorney

Bexar County Contract Dispute Lawyer for Business Owners and Partners

There are multiple types of business contracts that may be used to protect the rights of the parties involved in an agreement and ensure that they meet their obligations. Since businesses rely on contracts to protect their interests, business owners will need to understand how to proceed if another party fails to uphold the terms of a contract. In some cases, business litigation may be needed to enforce the terms of a contract or address the losses that have been caused due to a breach of contract. To ensure that these matters will be handled correctly, business owners can work with a lawyer who has experience in business law.

At the office of Geoff Mayfield, Attorney at Law, we provide knowledgeable and dedicated legal help and representation for business owners. Geoff has over 15 years of experience in business-related legal issues, and he can help you understand your rights and options as you address contract disputes. Whether you need to take action to enforce a contract or respond to claims that you have violated a contract's terms, he can advise you on the best steps to take to resolve these disputes while protecting your business's ongoing interests.

Options in Breach of Contract Cases

The way a contract dispute is handled will often be based on the type of contract breach that has occurred. A minor breach will usually involve a failure by one party to meet some of their contractual obligations, but it will not affect the contract as a whole. A material breach, on the other hand, will involve a major violation that undermines the purpose of the contract or causes the agreement to be nullified.

While the parties may be able to negotiate a resolution in cases involving minor contract breaches, litigation will often be required to address material breaches. If one party can show that the other has violated the contract's terms, they may ask a court to award different types of remedies, including:

  • Compensation - The party who breached the contract may be required to pay damages to the other party. Compensatory damages will address the losses suffered due to the breach of contract, including those that were directly caused by the failure to follow the terms of the contract, as well as other forms of harm that a business suffered, such as an inability to complete transactions or damage to its reputation. If a party acted egregiously, such as by committing fraud or other violations of the law, punitive damages may be awarded as punishment for this behavior.
  • Specific performance - The party who violated the terms of a contract may be required by the court to fulfill their contractual obligations to the best of their ability.
  • Cancellation or revision - A court may release both parties from their contractual obligations, and it may require the party who has breached the contract to restore the other party to the position they were in before they entered into the agreement. In some cases, a court may choose to modify the terms of a contract, although this is usually only done to correct errors or clarify misunderstandings.
