A contract is an agreement between two or more persons to do or refrain from doing a particular thing. We frequently enter into contracts in our everyday lives. Employment agreements, vehicle purchase agreements, home purchase agreements and phone service agreements, loan agreements, licensing agreements, service agreements and supply agreements are some of the many types of contracts we have all entered into.
When one of the parties to a contract fails to perform on the terms of the agreement, a breach is said to have occurred and the wronged party may seek redress. In most cases, compensation would be monetary. Monetary damages may be liquidated – where the contract itself already specifies the amount to be paid in the event of a breach or it may be compensatory – to put the plaintiff in the position she would have been had the contract not been breached. The court may also grant monetary award for attorney’s fees and costs. In certain circumstances however, the court may grant an order of specific performance, forcing the party who breached the contract to perform on the terms of the agreement. The court may also rescind the contract, thereby relieving both parties from the obligations associated with the contract.
