At Koch & Associates, located in the heart of Cicero, IL, we specialize in handling breach of contract cases, offering expert legal guidance and robust representation.
Breach of contract is a significant aspect of commercial litigation and often forms the basis of civil actions.

This failure can lead to unmet contract terms and additional costs incurred while seeking alternative solutions.
Our Services in Breach of Contract Disputes
As experienced breach of contract lawyers, we provide comprehensive legal services to address various breach scenarios, including:
- Enforcing specific performance to ensure the contract is executed as agreed.
- Seeking restitution by recovering expenses caused by contract cancellation.
- Pursuing liquidated damages as outlined in the contract.

Anticipatory Breach and Recovery in Contract Law
At Koch & Associates, we are adept in handling cases involving anticipatory breach, a situation where it becomes evident that one party will not fulfill their contractual obligations. In contract law, an anticipatory breach allows the non-breaching party to take legal action before the actual breach occurs. Our lawyers for breach of contract are skilled in navigating these complex scenarios, ensuring that our clients are prepared to effectively respond and recover damages.
Understanding the nuances of different types of contracts is crucial in these cases. Whether the contract includes service agreements, sales contracts, or any other form of legal agreement, our team is equipped to handle the intricacies involved.
We focus on the specific terms of each contract to determine the best course of action when a party indicates a failure to perform. This proactive approach is essential in safeguarding our clients’ interests and ensuring they are positioned to recover any losses due to contract law breaches.
Legal Expertise in Oral and Written Contracts
In Illinois, a breach of contract claim can arise from both written and oral agreements, provided they meet legal requirements. Not every breach leads to a legal cause of action; it’s crucial to establish the existence of a binding contract with clear mutual obligations. Our team diligently assesses contract modifications and the overall situation to determine if a breach has occurred under the law.
Navigating Breach of Contract and Implied Terms
Our approach also covers breaches of implied duties, ensuring fairness and upholding the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing. This aspect is vital as it allows the court to balance interests, often favoring the party who has acted in good faith.
