BREACH OF CONTRACT
What is a Breach of Contract?
Put simply, a contract is any agreement, whether written or oral, made between two parties. Each party has their own obligations to perform under the contract. On occasions, one party may breach the obligations and therefore the contract. This can have an effect on your business, whether that is simply a minor irritation or has a major impact, we can help.
Breaches of contract vary hugely in variety. They commonly include issues such as a failure by one of your suppliers to deliver goods or services on time, through to a building contractor failing to complete a project on time or on budget. It could also be an agreement to provide services to another business or consumer.
As a business, you can best protect yourself by being aware of your obligations and those of the other contracting parties. JWK Solicitors can provide advice to ensure that you are fully aware as to your obligations.
