This is one of the most common claims and causes of action for a lawsuit, which is not surprising given the complexity of business arrangements and that so many contracts are drafted poorly or without the parties fully understanding their consequences. In Virginia, in order to prove liability for a breach of contract lawsuit the plaintiff must show that the other party, without legal excuse, failed to perform an obligation placed on it by the contract or Virginia Code § 59.1-507.1. "Breach of contract; material breach", in the absence of a written agreement. In addition, under Virginia contract law, there is an implied standard of good faith and fair dealing that is read into every contract. In Virginia, this is not a separate cause of action, but could be used to independently show or determine that there was a breach of contract. Our Virginia contract attorneys have extensive experience litigating breach of contract cases involving loan agreements, patient contracts with doctors' offices, copyright licensing, non-disclosure agreements, and employment contracts.
