Breach of Contract
Businesses enter into numerous contracts in the course of formation, dissolution, and often as a part of daily operations with many different parties, including business partners, suppliers, vendors, customers, and other businesses. When a party does not fulfill its promises and duties as agreed in a particular contract, they have committed a breach of that contract. Contract breaches can be extremely costly to business owners if not handled appropriately and in a timely fashion. For this reason, you should always discuss a possible violation of contract provisions with an experienced Baltimore breach of contract lawyer as soon as possible.
