When individuals or companies have a disagreement regarding a contract, or when one party in an agreement breaks their promise, resolution can often only be made by filing a breach of contract lawsuit.
A breach of contract can have immediate and long-term detrimental effects on a person and their business. Courts can award a wide range of legal remedies to an aggrieved party to honor the benefit of the contract that was originally negotiated.

If a monetary legal remedy is not sufficient compensation, a court will sometimes require specific performance be given. This is when the breaching party is required to carry out the services outlined in the original contract.
If a formal contract does not exist, a person may still have a claim related to a promise. In a claim for promissory estoppel, a person may be able to recover if they can show:
- A promise
- Foreseeability of reliance thereon by the promisor
- The promisee materially and substantially changed their position in reliance on the promise
For a contract to be legally enforceable, there must be:
- An offer
- Acceptance in strict compliance with the terms of the offer
- A meeting of the minds
- Each party’s consent to the terms
- Execution and delivery of the contract with the intent that it be mutual and binding
Unjust enrichment, sometimes called quantum meruit, is a quasi-contractual claim. It allows a person or business to recover when (1) valuable services were rendered or materials were furnished, (2) for the person sought to be charged, (3) which services and materials were accepted by the person sought to be charged, used and enjoyed by him, (4) under such circumstances as reasonably notified the person sought to be charged that the person in performing such services, was expecting to be paid by the person sought to be charged.
A legal remedy is the enforcement of a right or penalty by a court of law.
