Breach of Contract (Part 2)

For our non-regular readers (shame on you!), “breach of contract” is a complicated legal issue, and one that our firm has a lot of experience with. In formal terms, “breach of contract” is a cause of action in which a binding agreement or agreed upon exchange is not honored by one or more of the represented parties in said contract, by either non-performance or interference with the other party’s performance.

There are four main types of contract breaches: Material, minor, anticipatory and actual. Before you sign a contract you can minimize risk by researching the involved parties, examining the contract for clarity and following all of your duties outline in the contract.

Now that we’ve recapped what constitutes a breach of contract, types of breaches, and steps to minimize risk, here’s our experience with the matter. Marcus Turner specializes in construction litigation, with an emphasis on matters involving breach of contract actions. Marcus has:

  • Represented a plaintiff subcontractor in a breach of contract, delay/inefficiency case seeking several hundred thousand dollars on a Federal Naval Base project. The case was settled on favorable terms for the plaintiff.
  • Represented a plaintiff subcontractor in a breach of contract, delay/inefficiency case seeking several hundred thousand dollars on a high rise residential project in San Francisco. The case was settled on favorable terms for the plaintiff.
  • Represented a plaintiff subcontractor in a multi-million dollar breach of contract, delay/inefficiency case on a University of California project. The case was settled on favorable terms for the plaintiff.

Our experience with breach of contract doesn’t stop with Marcus, though.

  • Frank Radoslovich most notably represented a mining firm against a publicly traded company for breach of contract. They prevailed with a $9.1 million verdict after a three-week trial.
  • Port Parker has represented a plaintiff in a fraud and breach of contract action, recovering $575,000 plus attorney’s fees for his client.
