Filing a Breach of Contract Lawsuit

Sometimes, filing a lawsuit is the only way to get the other party to honour their obligations under your contract. Here are the most common breach of contract cases. 

  • Failure to deliver goods or services
  • Failure to fully complete a job
  • Failure to pay on time (or at all)
  • Providing inferior goods or services
  • Failure to give proper notice
  • Breach of confidentiality or non-compete clauses

All lawsuits start by filing a formal complaint in the proper court of jurisdiction that references the contract between the parties, the specific breach(s) and the damages you are seeking. 

Filing a lawsuit can be stressful. The good news is you can work with an experienced breach of contract litigator to help you file your case correctly.
