Companies will often work with other companies when they need to purchase certain goods and services. Generally, when a company decides to work with another business, they will sign a contract that protects both their interests and the interests of the company they are using to make their purchase from. When a contract is properly drafted, it can be used to uphold a company’s rights to pursue litigation if the company they paid failed to follow through with the terms of the contract.
Examples of a Breach of Contract
- A business owner hires and pays a contractor to perform work on their place of business. The contractor begins the job he/she was contracted to complete but never returns to finish the job.
- A company orders wholesale products from another business and discovers that the products do not match the quality, design, etc. that was outlined in the contract.
- A company fails to pay a business owner for the services that he/she performed for them.

- Contact a business law attorney in Albany, NY.
If a business owner is unable to get the issue resolved, he/she can contact a lawyer who will review the matter and determine what form of action needs to be taken. Generally, if one party breaches a contract and isn’t willing to work out the problem, they could be faced with legal repercussions. Now, depending on the circumstances, an attorney may decide to draft a breach of contract letter to inform the company that they did not follow through on their end of the contract to give them a chance to right their wrongs.
In the event that does not resolve the issue, there is always the option of filing a lawsuit in an effort to recover the money that is owed and possibly even damages (i.e. financial relief).
