Breach of Contract

Breach of contract and other contract disputes are extremely common in business. This occurs when one party accuses the other party of failing to perform a duty as promised, either through a written or an oral agreement. A breach of contract often leads to a legal battle as it can negatively impact the person or business.

Minnesota Breach of Contract Lawyer

As defined by the Minnesota Statutes, a contract is a “set of promises for the breach of which the law gives a remedy, or the performance of which the law in some way recognizes as a duty.” A breach of this contract means that the party fails to provide what is offered through the contract. A contract can be established either through the written word or orally as well.
