What can I do if I'm dealing with a breach of contract issue?

Owning a business in California or elsewhere can be very rewarding, but it can also be extremely stressful. When faced with a problem, knowing how to handle it is not always that easy or straightforward. For example, you make a certain agreement with a supplier and draw up a contract. Things go really well for a while, but then the supplier stops holding up its end of the deal.

Breach of contract issues can be tough to handle, but thankfully, this is a type of problem you do not have to resolve on your own. What can you do if your business is suffering due to a breach of contract issue? Why should you seek help with this type of matter?


As much as business owners hope to avoid them, breach of contract issues happen. They may involve employees, suppliers or sometimes even customers. When faced with a situation in which the other party is not keeping his or her end of an agreement, what options are there to deal with it? Is litigation the only answer?

Truthfully, business litigation can suck the life out of a business. It takes time and can be costly. So, avoiding litigation is preferable and possible.

Instead of litigation, one can try verbal and written warnings. It may also be possible to renegotiate the terms of the contract. If you do not feel comfortable doing these things on your own, you can seek assistance from an experienced business law attorney who will be able to take the lead and fight for you.

If alternative dispute resolutions fail to produce desirable results, litigation may be the only way to go. Before heading down that road, however, you need to ask yourself:

  • Do I have a solid case?
  • Will I ever see compensation if it is awarded?
  • Will continued alternative dispute resolution efforts eventually solve the issue?

Weighing the positives and negatives of the different resolution methods will serve your best interests. If you are still unsure, after carefully reviewing your case, your legal counsel will be able to offer guidance on the matter and help you pursue a course of action that will best serve your company's interests.
