Material Breach of Contract in New York

You Deserve to be Compensated & Our Firm Can Help

When you enter into a contract, you do so with confidence that the other party will fulfill their responsibilities as prescribed in the contract. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen. If one party fails to perform their duties in such a way that renders the agreement irreparably broken, it is considered a material breach. The affected party may then be able to take action to collect damages.

We at Nisar Law Group, P.C. understand the gravity of a material breach of contract. Our firm has two decades of business litigation experience and can help you pursue a fair resolution to your case. As breach of contract lawyers dedicated to the best interests of New York residents, you can count on us to take a stand for what you deserve.

What Makes a Breach of Contract ‘Material’?

Just because the other party neglected to follow through on a promise does not necessarily indicate a material breach of contract. The court must consider the contract as a whole to determine if the other party’s behavior constitutes a total, or material, breach.

Certain indicators can point to a material breach of contract, including:

  • The loss is not easily solved by monetary compensation
  • The breaching party is unlikely to remedy the problem
  • The breaching party acted in bad faith
  • The non-breaching party is “ready, willing, and able” to perform its contractual obligations
  • The contract includes a clause that defines a material breach

If it is apparent that the breach was material in nature, legal consequences can follow. The non-breaching party may have the right to sue for the breach and recover compensation. Additionally, the non-breaching party may also be excused from performing their part of the contract. Our firm is here to assist you from the moment you enter the courtroom until your case is resolved favorably.
