Breach of contract solicitors

Nobody enters into a contract expecting to be let down, but it happens. If a legally binding agreement has not been honoured, you might not be sure what to do. At Talbots Law, we know exactly what to do, and we’re here to help you do it. Resolving contractual disputes is what our specialist team does best, so you know you can trust us to make things right.

A breach of contract occurs when one party fails to deliver their part of an agreement. It could be the sale of a defective product or the failure of a business to provide services within an agreed time-scale. Contractual disputes vary, but at the heart of each breach of contract is a disappointed client. That’s why we do what we do: to put things right and ensure that our clients voices are heard, even when they take on a large corporation.

Breach of contract FAQ

How can I prove a breach of contract?
In order to establish that your contract was breached, you must be able to prove:

  • That you entered into a contract containing certain terms.
  • That you did what the contract required you to do.
  • That the defendant did not do what the contract required them to do.
  • That the defendant's breach, or failure to do what the contract required, caused you a loss.

Proving the above can be difficult and it’s likely that the defendant will deny breaching the contract. For this reason, any physical evidence you have such as a defective product, or an email chain that proves the late arrival of a product or service, will be useful.

What is the time limit for bringing a breach of contract claim?
If you wish to make a claim against an individual or a business regarding a breach of contract, taking action as early as possible will play a strong role in the outcome of your claim. While the claim will still be valid after a year, by waiting this long to claim you will have lost the sense of urgency. For that reason, it’s imperative to talk to your trusted solicitor as soon as you believe your contract has been breached. Together, we’ll work on securing your desired outcome as quickly and efficiently as possible.

If your contract has been breached in any way, speak to the specialist solicitors at Talbots Law today to begin the process of making a claim. Just give us a call on 0800 118 1500 and we’ll be ready to assist and advise you to the best of our ability.
