Contract Law

A breach of contract is a failure, without legal excuse, to perform a promise.

While this seems simple enough, the vast majority of business litigation stems from a breach of contract.

It seems that some companies simply don't care to honor their contractual obligations and the only way for you to get relief is to sue them to enforce the contract and recover your damages.

The non-breaching party in a breach of contract case is entitled to recover:

  • All the damages that the parties to the contract envisioned would accrue if the contract was breached;
  • All reasonable expenses incurred in complying with the contract and costs; and,
  • Attorneys' fees and expenses of litigation if it can be proven that the contract was entered into in bad faith, was procured by fraud, or that the defendant (the breaching party) has been stubbornly litigious.

Types of contracts

The type of contract being used in an agreement can refer to the structure of the document, details of compensation, requirements to be legally enforceable, or the associated risks.

The contracts listed below are not all comparable to one another and can’t all be used interchangeably.

Fixed-price contract

Fixed-price contracts, also known as lump sum contracts, are used in situations where the payment doesn’t depend on the resources used or time expended.

Cost-reimbursement contract

With a cost-reimbursement contract, the final total cost is determined when the project is completed or at another predetermined date within the contract’s time frame.

Cost-plus contract

Also used for construction projects, a cost-plus contract is a type of cost-reimbursement contract for situations where the buyer agrees to pay the actual cost of the entire project, including labor, materials, and any unexpected expenses.

Time and materials contract

A time and materials contract is like a cost-plus contract, but a little more straightforward.

Unit price contract

With a unit price contract, the total price is based on all of the individual units that make up the entire project.

Bilateral contract

A bilateral contract is one in which both parties make an exchange of promises to perform a certain action. 

Unilateral contract

Unilateral contracts are agreements where a party promises to pay another after they have performed a specified act. 

Implied contract

An implied contract is an agreement that exists based on the actions of the involved parties.

Express contract

In these types of agreements, the exchange of promises includes both parties agreeing to be bound by the terms of the contract orally, in writing, or a combination of both. 

Simple contract

A simple contract is a contract made orally or in writing that requires consideration to be valid.

Unconscionable contract

An unconscionable contract refers to an agreement that is so obviously one-sided and unfair to one of the parties involved that it can’t be enforceable by law.

Adhesion contract

An adhesion contract, also known as a standard form contract, is sort of a “take it or leave it” situation.

Aleatory contract

Aleatory contracts explain agreements where parties don’t have to perform their designated action until a triggering event occurs.
