A contract is a legally binding agreement, or promise between two or more persons, verbal or written that can be enforced by the law.  These promises and agreements are entered into regularly each day, by individuals, businesses and other organisations. For example such parties may agree to:

  • Buy or Sell Goods
  • To Hire or Provide a Service
  • To Rent a Property
  • To Settle a Debt Dispute
  • Sign a Contract of Employment
  • Sign an Online Agreement

These agreements all involve the promise to provide something, or to refrain from doing something else.

Gorvins Approach to Contractual Disputes

Our compensation claims department can help you claim for loss or damages through breach of contract, whilst providing legal advice on mediation and alternative dispute resolution.

We also have an experienced Employment Law department, advising both Employers and Employees on all areas of employment law contracts and contract disputes.

How do I know if I have a Breach of Contract?

If the terms of a contract are broken, then there is a breach of contract. This includes situations arising when one party does not comply with its terms, or if they change their mind and do not perform their side of the contract.

There are many ways in which Gorvins can work with you to remedy a breach of contract, but the most common solutions would be:

  • To make a claim for damages (a sum of money) for loss or damage caused by the breach of contract;
  • To apply for an order, for the contract to be performed, and obligations to be carried out;
  • To seek a court order, declaring the contract null and void, obliging the party who has breached the contract to put the ‘innocent party’ back in the position he/she was in before the contract was entered into.
