Texas Contract Laws
Our Business Contract Attorneys at Harris Cook, LLP, have extensive knowledge of and experience with Texas Contract Laws. Just as each contract is unique, every fulfillment issue is different. Contracts must be valid to begin with and contain specific references to exactly what actions, products or services are included. Contracts must include an offer, acceptance of that offer and a value consideration made for that contract to be valid. If you omit any element, it may not withstand a challenge later on.
Breach Of Contract
When someone believes a contract has not been properly fulfilled, they can ask for compensation under Texas Breach of Contract laws. A breach simply means that the plaintiff alleges that the defendant failed to properly perform or fulfill the terms of a valid contract. To win your case, it must be shown that this breach caused material damage. A defense against breach of contract might include claims that the plaintiff did indeed benefit materially, or that the contract was not valid in the first place.
Penalties for Breach of Contract may include a court order for fulfillment according to contract terms, monetary compensation or reimbursement to the plaintiff for time losses and expenses, and future losses that could be attributed to the breach.
Our Harris Cook, LLP, Business Litigation attorneys can help you if your business has been sued for breach of contract, as well as helping you try to recover if another business has breached a contract and caused your business damages.
