Breach of Contract

Overview

If a party to a contract refuses or fails to perform their part of the agreement, the other party can file a civil case in Court against the defaulting party for breach of contract and can claim compensation for damages incurred. MyAdvo will help you draft and file the petition through an expert contract lawyer and will manage your case lifecycle.

 

Before filing the case for breach of contract, sending a legal notice to the defaulting party acts as a final warning to perform their part of agreement. In case the dispute is still not resolved, you can then file a case for breach of contract. To send a legal notice, please click here.
