Monroe Breach of Contract Attorneys
A contract is an agreement between two or more parties that is legally enforceable. In the context of operating a business or a commercial enterprise, these contracts typically involve multiple entities and are known as corporate contracts or business agreements.
Corporate contracts include:
- Partnership agreements
- Non-disclosure agreements (NDAs)
- Employment contracts
- Join-venture agreements
- Property leases
- Independent contractor agreements
- Equipment leases
In addition to corporate agreements, contracts can also be between any two individuals, such as neighbors, family members, home service providers and customers, and so forth. Regardless of the context, contracts involve the exchange of goods, services, or some other type of consideration, as well as an exchange of obligations, benefits, and liabilities.
The problem occurs when one or more parties that entered into the contract fail to uphold their contractual responsibilities and promises. This failure is known as a breach of contract. These situations can lead to formal contract disputes and civil lawsuits, where one party sues the other for damages allegedly resulting from the violation of contractual obligations.

Breach of Contract Litigation in North Carolina
Contractual disputes can arise from misunderstandings about the terms and conditions of a contract, negligence, or an intentional failure to fulfill one’s obligations under the agreement.
Violations of contractual obligations include:
- Failure to pay as promised
- Failure to deliver on promises
- Fraud and misrepresenting necessary details (liabilities, services, obligations)
In such cases, civil litigation might be necessary in order to resolve any issues or recover incurred damages related to the breach of the original agreement.
Litigation can help businesses and individuals hold the other party accountable for the breach and enforce the terms of the contract. Courts may award damages to the plaintiff if they can indeed prove that the other party failed to fulfill their contractual duties by failing to deliver on promised goods or services or by otherwise not meeting the expectations defined in the agreement. The potential for litigation is why it’s always important for businesses and individuals entering into any kind of contract to seek legal counsel so that they can ensure their interests are effectively protected should they find themselves facing litigation in the future.
