Breach of Contract Lawyer in San Diego
Skillfully Defending Your Business Interests
Contracts are the lifeblood of civilization--they are the reason that people can afford to deal with each other. Without contracts, many of the profitable relationships business owners enjoy today would simply be impossible to manage or would leave small business owners vulnerable. Ultimately, contracts level the playing field by making large companies accountable to the smallest, single-person company.
Maintaining the sanctity of contracts between businesses is one of business law's most important purposes. When someone chooses to dishonor their contract, the other party has the right to hold them accountable.
At the McClellan Law Firm, we maintain the integrity of contractual agreements through business litigation. Our award-winning practice has helped individuals and businesses throughout Southern California for over 30 years. We offer free case evaluations, so reach out to us when you’re dealing with a breach of contract.

What is Considered a Breach of Contract?
A breach of contract is any situation in which one or both parties fail to perform their duties or deliver products agreed upon in a contract. Breach of contracts usually come in two forms: material and minor. Material breaches are when one party receives a product or service significantly different from what the contract promised. This breach releases the other party from the contract, so payment for any services is no longer owed.
Minor breaches of contract are when one party fails to perform some part of the contract, but the other party still receives their product or service. For example, a small delay in delivery would result in a minor breach because the other party still received what was promised, albeit slightly later. Wronged parties would still be required to pay for services in minor breaches, as the primary aspects of the contract are fulfilled.
In either case, however, the judge will consider the damages done to the plaintiff. If even a minor breach resulted in damages, then the plaintiff is still entitled to recovering those damages. For example, if a plaintiff can prove that a delay in delivery of marketing material significantly caused a loss of revenue to her business, the marketing material supplier would be responsible for paying her the damages that resulted.
