Legal counsel for a breach of contract in Calgary, Alberta.

For any number of reasons, commercial parties violate the terms of their contractual arrangements and thereby find themselves in breach of contract. The issue becomes what is the reaction of each of the parties to the breach and how will this be ultimately resolved.

The core elements associated with a breach of contract claim are the following:

 (i) the existence of a valid and legally-binding contract between the parties;

(ii) the party asserting the breach either tendered performance or was excused from doing so;

 (iii) the party that purportedly is in breach has in fact breached the terms of the contract; and

(iv) the party asserting the breach sustained damages as a result of the breaching actions of the party that purportedly is in breach.

This however is merely the starting point for tackling a breach of contract claim, as these legal matters tend to be impacted by a multitude of factors, including the specifics of the actual controversy and the willingness of the parties to resolve the situation or force it to judicial litigation before the court. This inevitably leads to most breach of contract cases being extremely strenuous and expensive.

  Non-Competition Agreement
Contracts should be made specific to the particular circumstances of the business arrangement, as opposed to simply attempting to rely on a generic template that is not designed to advance your company's financial interests, hence the significance of a contract lawyer drafting a non-competition agreement.
Clauses often seen in such contracts might include some variant of:
" NON-COMPETITION. During the Term and any Non-Compete Period (hereinafter defined), the Director will not, directly or indirectly, either as a principal, agent, employee, employer, stockholder, partner, or director engage in any "Competitive Business"; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, the foregoing shall not prohibit or limit the Director's right to (i) pursue investments, transactions or businesses allowed pursuant to the terms of the Mutual Exclusivity Agreement, (ii) continue the Director's ownership, investment, management and operation of the Remington Affiliates consistent with the terms of the Mutual Exclusivity Agreement, (iii) continue the Director's ownership, investment, management and operation of all existing investments of the Director and the Remington Affiliates as of the Effective Date consistent with the terms of the Mutual Exclusivity Agreement, and (iv) remain an officer and/or director of all Remington Affiliates consistent with the terms of the Mutual Exclusivity Agreement."
