Breach of Contract Disputes

Breach of Contract Solicitors London

A dispute can arise under any sort of contract. South Bank Legal’s breach of contract solicitors can represent clients in disputes involving:

Regardless of how skilfully a commercial contract is prepared, or how diligently the contracting parties attempt to perform their end of the bargain, breach of contract claims can arise where the terms of a contract are not adhered to.

Determining whether a breach of contract has taken place is not often clear cut. Each party to the dispute will have its competing arguments. Our dispute resolution solicitors are quick to analyse the facts of a case and provide options tailored to the needs of our business clients.

If your contractual rights have been breached and you are looking to bring a breach of contract claim, you may have a number of legal remedies, including:

  • Termination– ending the contract and discharging yourself from any further obligations under it. This remedy is available where the other party has breached a term of the contract that is fundamental, or has acted in a way that indicates that they are no longer willing to perform their contractual obligations.
  • Damages– claiming financial compensation for the losses you have suffered from the breach of contract. The amount of damages to which you are entitled can however be expressly limited by the contract itself.
  • Specific Performance– it is sometimes possible to obtain a court order requiring a party who has failed or refused to honour a contract to in fact carry out their contractual obligations. The remedy of specific performance is less common however, as courts will generally look to compensate a wronged party by awarding monetary damages.
