When all terms of a contract are not honored, a breach has occurred and a lawyer who is well-versed in business law needs to review the situation. While there is times when the breach is obvious, other times great effort is required to prove that contractual duties were breached. This holds true especially when it involves the quality of service, materials or completing a project in a timely fashion.
