Breach of Contract
This article provides a useful, but very simplistic overview of the subject. Some of the issues mentioned can be very complex with a lot of exceptions to the general rule. You can protect yourself with a well written contract that delineates the specific obligations of each party. If you believe, the other party is not going to fully perform their obligations then it is important that you consult with an attorney. The article states that the plaintiff must do everything that is required by the contract. Generally this means that the plaintiff must perform their obligations unless clearly prevented from doing so by the actions of the defendant. This is where an attorney can help you document that you actually could have performed but for the defendant’s conduct. It is also essential that you precisely document the dollar amount of the loss that the defendant has caused you.
