Business is based on relationships and agreements. Such agreements may include someone’s promise to pay you for your services, to provide you with needed services or materials, or some other form of commitment. Unfortunately, the world is not perfect and sometimes people fail to keep their word. By having an enforceable contract in place, you can help to ensure that your rights are protected against those who do not honor prior agreements. Our Dayton attorneys have been assisting local businesses for decades and we have extensive experience in handling such matters. Contact us today to speak with a lawyer.

A contract is an agreement between multiple parties. Such an agreement can be in regard to the transfer of property, the payment of money, or the provision of services. When one end of the agreement fails to live up to their commitments, then it is possible for the aggrieved parties to file a lawsuit. The remedies for breach of contract can include financial compensation, potentially the losses one may have suffered as a result, and more. How any case will proceed is always going to depend on the specifics of a situation.
The first step in the negotiation of an agreement is to clearly define the goals of yourself or your organization. It is then necessary to negotiate an agreement, with all those involved, that will help you to meet those goals. This includes building in protections that will apply in the event that another party breaches the agreement. Such protections can include clearly stated deadlines, provisions for liquidated damages, a requirement that the breaching party pay all legal fees, and more. It is also crucial to clearly define what types of acts will constitute a “breach” and to ensure that all terms of the agreement are clearly defined. If items are not clearly spelled out, in unambiguous terms, then disputes can arise as to the meaning of the agreement.
