If you have entered into an agreement for the purchase of goods or services, you expect that all parties will keep their word and abide by the terms of the agreement. When one or more of the parties to your contract fails to perform as anticipated, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your interests, one who has successfully helped others in similar circumstances.
At the law office of Fisher & Talwar, we represent businesses and individuals in a wide range of contract matters, including breach of contract and anticipatory repudiation claims. Our experienced breach of contract attorney works closely with expert witnesses and investigators with the understanding that no two cases are the same and that every case requires meticulous preparation and a creative strategy in order to obtain the desired results. We will help you successfully use alternative means of dispute resolution, including mediation or arbitration, to resolve disputes prior to trial, if doing so is in your best interest. For your initial consultation, please e-mail us or call (213) 891-0777.
Helping Businesses and Individuals with Breach of Contract Claims
Contrary to common understanding, two or more parties can enter into a binding contract without any complex legal language or anything in writing. Contracts can be oral or written and can be express or implied.
The minimum requirements to be contractually bound are simple, including:
- An agreement (generally referred to as an offer and acceptance) between two or more people.
- Supported by consideration. Consideration refers to promising to do something that you are not obligated to do or refrain from doing something that you have a legal right to do. Consideration must be mutual. This generally requires each party to give up something as such, a promise to provide a gift does not qualify as a valid contract even if it is in writing.
- The parties entering into the agreement must intend to be bound and must have the mental capacity to understand that they are entering into a binding contract.
- Finally, the purpose of the contract must be legal.
If you have entered into a binding contract and one of the other parties has failed to meet the terms of the agreement, we can help you recover damages for losses incurred, including the loss of “the benefit of the bargain” you would have received, as well as out-of-pocket costs resulting from the breach. If the contract provides for attorney’s fees to be paid by one of the parties in the event of a breach, we will also help you recover attorney’s fees you paid to us to prosecute or defend your claim.
We handle all types of contract breach claims, for plaintiffs and defendants, including claims involving goods coming through the Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach.
