Contract Disputes in Illinois
A breach of contract occurs when one party fails to perform under the terms and conditions of the agreement. Determining if one party is in breach of contract is not always easy. Contracts are often written vaguely and in a subjective manner. Also, if written by the legal counsel of the other party without the opportunity for you to review, it may be worded in a way that makes it more difficult to obtain relief.
There are numerous options for obtaining relief in contract disputes, including:
- Contract Rescission;
- Monetary Damages;
- Injunctive Relief;
- Declaratory Judgment;
- Specific Performance; and
- Recovery of Attorney Fees.
