Breach of Contract in California
Everyday, individuals and businesses engage in transactions that amount to contracts, whether in writing or not. A contract is a promise or set of promises enforceable by law. The law that governs a contract depends on whether a contract is for the sales of goods or a contract for services or the sale of real property.
Often there are disputes as to whether a contract was even formed. Other disputes arise where the terms of a contract are unclear and the parties disagree as to what the actual terms are. In some instances, a party may fail to perform their contractual obligation. Regardless of what kind of contract, there is an implied promise of good faith and fair dealing in all contracts.
As a business owner, you are naturally concerned about the reputation and success of your business. A claim of breach of contract can disrupt your business and possibly damage your reputation.
