Breach of Contract
Toronto’s Commercial Contract Dispute Lawyers
Contracts provide a critically important underpinning to most business, legal, and employment relationships. They lay out the expectations of each party to the relationship and are intended to provide a guarantee that these expectations will be complied with.
Unfortunately, breaches of those agreements often occur. A breach of contract can take on many forms and occur in a variety of situations, all of which can have a significant and negative impact on your business. Whether you have an employee who is not complying with expectations as laid out in the employment contract, a supplier who has failed to deliver goods, or a business partner who has backed out of an arrangement, all of these breaches require swift and knowledgeable legal intervention to preserve your rights.

Understanding Breach of Contract Law
A contract is a legally binding agreement between two parties. A breach of contract occurs when one party to a contract fails to perform what is required of them under the agreement. Depending on the terms of the contract, any parties wronged by the alleged failure may have recourse to a civil claim for damages, or alternatively, a mediation or arbitration process.
A breach of contract claim can arise out of a failure to perform any contractual obligation, regardless of whether the contract has been made in writing, or has simply been agreed to verbally through a discussion. Contractual obligations can be either expressly agreed to, or can be implied based on how different sections of a contract speak to one another.
Ultimately, contractual disputes are resolved through careful interpretation of the contract, the intent of the parties, as well as any applicable legislation and case law. If you find yourself involved in a contract dispute, you need a legal team with proficiency parsing the nuances of contractual language, and a record of resolving contractual disputes while minimizing costs.
