When a party fails to abide by the terms of a contract, the first option may be to negotiate. Unfortunately, negotiation is not always effective and litigation may be necessary. Breach of contract actions may be required to enforce the terms of the agreement or resolve issues related to fraud, duress, the legality of the contractual terms, or errors in the contract. Remedies for contract disputes vary and may include monetary damages or specific performance compelling one party to satisfy specific contractual terms.
In some instances, the parties may be able to settle the lawsuit out of court through mediation or arbitration (which may be required by the terms of the contract). Depending on the nature of the claim and damages in dispute, arbitration or mediation may be the most efficient and cost-effective means of resolving the matter. When these options are exhausted, you may be forced to go to trial to enforce or defend against contract claims.
