Knowledgeable litigators handle breach of contract cases

To run a business smoothly and successfully, owners often have to place their trust in the hands of employees, third-party contractors or other businesses. When that trust is broken, it can affect business operations, profits, consumer confidence and more. When a party to a contract doesn’t perform, there are remedies our attorneys can seek for monetary damages or equitable relief. The remedies may include:

  • Direct damages — Reimbursement for monetary loss directly resulting from the breach, past and future
  • Consequential and incidental damages  Compensation for additional foreseeable losses caused by the breach, including lost profits
  • Attorney fees and costs  Under Texas law, a party who prevails in a claim for breach of contract may often recover its attorney's fees from the other party.
  • Liquidated damages — Amounts specified in the contract that are payable for particular breaches, such as late or substandard performance
  • Specific performance  Court order requiring the breaching party to fulfill the terms of the contract
  • Rescission  Cancellation of the contract, with both sides excused from further performance and payments made under the contract returned
  • Reformation  Change in the terms of the contract when the court believes there was an honest misunderstanding by the parties about what was to be performed

The lawyers at Bayne, Snell and Krause are committed to helping business owners achieve the best legal remedy for breach of contract cases, whether they are the plaintiffs or defendants.

We understand the advantages of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), including mediation and arbitration. Our skilled negotiators help our clients get their businesses back on track while avoiding the expense of litigation.
