The Breach of Contract claim is probably the most common in business disputes and related litigation in Colorado. Simply put, a contract is an agreement between two or more persons or entities. A contract can be oral or written, and it consists of an offer and acceptance of that offer supported by consideration (value). If an element is missing, there is no contract. If the contract is breached–one of the necessary allegations of a breach of contract claim–there is typically recourse available to the non-breaching party for damages under Colorado law, and other remedies such as:
- specific permanence (court-ordered compliance),
- rescission (court-ordered cancellation), or
- injunctions (temporary or permanent).
Select breach of contract lawsuits may be handled on a contingency fee basis.
