Breach
of Contract

If you have suffered a breach of contract, whether it be from a business partner, supplier, contractor, you may need a specialist breach of contract solicitor. At Ashwood Solicitors, we can pursue a breach of contract claim on your behalf. When you’re involved in a contract dispute it can have a significant impact on you or your business, it can hold up important work, affect commercial relationships and have financial consequences if the right impact is not achieved.

At Ashwood Solicitors, we have a team that is highly capable when resolving commercial disputes promptly and efficiently. If the terms of a contract have been broken, you may be entitled to make a case against the breaching party. This can come in the form of damages or compensation claims, filing a court order for the obligations set out in the contract or even seeking a court declaration regarding terms.

What is a breach of contract?

A breach of contract is where one or more of the terms and conditions within a contract have been broken. This could then lead to a business or professional relationship breaking down as well as filing for damage claims in court. This kind of business dispute can cost time and money, not to mention the loss of resources and stress you may experience. A breach of contract could even affect your ability to deliver on other contracts risking further litigation. However, if you would like to file a breach of contract claim, please get in touch with Ashwood Solicitors today because there is a time limit of six years for claiming breach of contract damages.

Ashwood Solicitors Breach of contract services

At Ashwood Solicitors, we have a specialist team who will aim to understand the circumstances of your breach of contract claim. We have the expertise to be able to provide clear and straightforward advice, to resolve your legal issues in the most cost-efficient way.

We try to avoid taking the case to court unless absolutely necessary and we will aim to resolve the issues with ADR or mediation with the other party involved. 

For example, such involved parties may agree to:

  • Buy or Sell Goods
  • To Hire or Provide a Service
  • To Rent a Property
  • To Settle a Debt Dispute
  • Sign a Contract of Employment
  • Sign an Online Agreement

There are many ways in which our contract dispute solicitors can work with you to remedy a breach of contract, but the most common solutions would be:

  • To make a claim for damages in terms of a sum of money for damages caused by the breach of contract;
  • To apply for an order, for the contractual obligations to be carried out;
  • To seek a court order, declaring the contract null and void, obliging the ‘innocent party’ to be returned back to a suitable position before the contract was entered into.

The expenses for making a claim of breach of contract can be costly, so as a result, our team aim to resolve breach of contract disputes without the need for court intervention and negotiate on your behalf to reach a pragmatic settlement.
