Business disputes can arise for many different reasons, with one of the most common issues being a breach of contract claims. If businesses ran perfectly, parties would always adhere to the terms of contracts that they enter into with other parties. However, in the business world, breaches of contracts happen more often than you might expect. In some cases, parties breach contracts without intending to do so, while in other situations parties intentionally decide not to fulfill the terms of a contract. Sometimes breach of contract claims arise when businesses go bankrupt and cannot keep the promises they made in a contract, while other breach of contract claims might arise, for instance, when a commercial tenant has a dispute with the commercial landlord about how leased property can be used.
Breaches of contracts happen more often than you might expect; a Las Vegas breach of contract lawyer can help.
When two parties enter into a business contract, each party makes a promise to the other or agrees to a certain obligation. The contract legally binds both parties to the terms of the contract (unless the contract is not enforceable). When one of the parties fails to fulfill any of the terms of the contract, this is known as a “breach” of the contract.
In some cases, a breach of contract may be deemed “immaterial” because it does not actually result in harm to the other party. For example, if a commercial landlord promises to repair a broken lock on a building by Monday but does not actually repair the lock until Friday, as long as the commercial tenant does not experience a break-in or any losses, the breach of contract likely would be immaterial. However, if a break-in occurred as a result of the commercial landlord’s failure to repair the lock, then this might be a “material” breach. When there is a material breach of contract, it typically gives rise to a breach of contract claim.
