What constitutes breach of contract?

Business disputes happen for a variety of reasons – project delays, financial issues or basic personality clashes. Whatever the reason, a dispute can prevent one party from carrying out the terms of a signed contract, which can result in an action for breach of contract.

A common breach of contract scenario is when one small business contracts with another for a service. Perhaps a restaurant orders customized dining ware from a supply company but refuses to pay on the grounds that the color is not correct. If the two companies cannot reach a mutually beneficial solution, they may have to take their conflict to litigation.
