Proving a breach of contract in the tri-state area

In many cases, a contractual breach can be avoided by having a commercial litigation lawyer review the contract before you sign it. However, if you have already entered into a contract and you believe it has been breached by one or more parties, you can take civil action. Below are some of the issues that may lead to a breach of contract:

  • Fraud
  • Duress
  • Legality of the contract
  • Errors made by any signing party

Prosecuting a breach of contract claim

The Law Offices of Tacopina, Seigel & DeOreo has considerable experience handling contract and partnership dispute matters. The firm’s NYC contract dispute attorneys can assist you with the following issues pertaining to your claim:

  • Pleading requirements:

    A breach-of-contract claim requires you to demonstrate the existence of a contract, a material breach of the contract and damages.

  • Using expert witnesses:

    Contract disputes generally involve either a breach of the contract or disagreement over the terms and obligations imposed upon the parties to the contract. Expert witnesses are sometimes needed to clarify complex or industry-specific terms included in a contract or to explain the standard of practice in a given industry when important terms are missing from a contract.
