Question: “What are my options if the other party has materially breached our contract?”
After material breach of a contract, the first thing that you should do is have the contract and the circumstances analyzed by an experienced attorney. Many contracts have provisions that require notice to be provided to the breaching party to give them an opportunity to cure or remedy the breach. It’s important to make sure that you strategize with a knowledgeable attorney because you may do things early on in the process after breach that actually impair your ability to enforce the contract. Ultimately you may be able to bring litigation but you want to be sure that you’re postured appropriately before you do that.
