A contract dispute arises when one of the parties fails to perform the duties stated, or renders it impossible for the other party to perform one’s duties. One of the parties may file a breach of contract suit that often claims that the defendant’s act or failure to act has caused harm to the plaintiff. More often than not, the suit involves financial loss. At present, even the most basic contract already anticipates disputes and has provisions for resolution of disputes.

The most common topics in breach of contract suits include:

  • Non-disclosure or confidentiality agreement;
  • Mortgage acceleration clause;
  • Merger or modification of agreements;
  • General or limited release of liability;
  • Choice of venue or law;
  • General or limited warranty;
