Montgomery County Breach Of Contract Litigation

Contracts are inescapable and necessary to business operations. Almost any established business has contracts with customers, suppliers and venture partners. Business is more efficient with certainty, and contracts are often intended to generate certainty. All too frequently, contracts are breached and you are faced with a loss of certainty, an increase in expense and problems with others in your interlocking business relationships.

Breach of contract essentially refers to the failure to fulfill the terms of a legally binding agreement. If you have suffered a serious financial loss as a result of an individual's or a business's failure to perform an agreed-upon service, provide agreed-upon goods, or pay for goods and services you have provided, you may be entitled to damages.
