The remedies a Court may award in a claim for breach of contract vary depending on each case. Some of the remedies are listed below: –

1. Basic Resolution – this remedy is where the breaching party pays the other party monetary compensation for failures to perform the contract and the contract is terminated. If there is a breach of a warranty then the aggrieved party can only claim damages, not termination of the contract.

2. Specific Performance  – this remedy requires the breaching party to carry out an obligation under the original contract.

3. Rescission – if a contract has been entered into as a result of fraud, misrepresentation, duress or undue influence, the entire contract can be annulled.

4. Rectification – This applies to written contracts and the court may rectify the mistakes that were made when recording the agreement.

It is important that you seek legal advice from an experienced contract Solicitor when faced with such legal issues.

Disputes between owners of a business happen more often than you think,  even if you founded the business. You may recall the infamous story of Apple firing Steve Jobs (a company he co-founded in 1976) because of a clash with the CEO in 1985.

The first step is to establish whether your business is a partnership or a limited company. This should be straightforward if you have a written partnership agreement or written shareholders agreement. If there is no written agreement (which sometimes occurs) then the formation of the business needs to be carefully scrutinised.

The second step is to understand and examine the reason why you have fallen out with your business partner. Is it simply a disagreement about the vision of the business? Or has a business partner acted in bad faith and breached their fiduciary duties?

The solution to such a dispute may be for one party to leave the business, by buying the other party’s share in the business, or voting for a party to be removed in accordance with the company’s articles of association. Mediation is an effective tool to reach a solution.

Unlike some law firms, we can offer a fixed fee service from start to finish for most of our cases. Full information will be provided in our Terms of Business.  You can have a look at our fixed fee service.
