Topics in Contract Law


At the Spence Law Firm we are contract law scholars and trial court veterans of contract litigation.  You can see all of our trial court victories on our results page.  We have put in the time to know and practice the law of contracts in-depth and we leverage this knowledge for our clients every day.  With other law firms you may get a good contract lawyer and you may end up with a ne’er do well or inexperienced lawyer that wastes your time and money.  Go Spence Law and go with a skilled and experienced contract lawyer.

Some of the contract law topics we work with our clients on include:

Attorney’s Fees in Contract Litigation – Whether or not a client can recover the attorney’s fees and costs spent in litigation is a tremendously important consideration.  Attorney’s fees, expert witnesses, deposition transcripts and other costs and expenses can make litigation an expensive endeavor.

Breach of contract law – Florida law on breach of contract is wide-ranging and complex.  We provide a detailed outline of the topic.

Breach of Contract Lawsuits – Under Florida law, when a party files a lawsuit for breach of contract, there are specific documents that must be filed and certain steps that must be taken to prepare the case for trial.

Defenses to Breach of Contract – Just because there has been a breach of contract does not automatically mean that the other side is at fault or must pay damages.  If an affirmative defense applies, then it will excuse a breach.  Other denial defenses may operate in a similar manner.

Termination of Contract – Sometimes things don’t work out as planned and one party to the contract decides it is time for the dance to come to an end.  If the contract is ended before it would naturally expire, then it has been terminated.  There are grounds that support one side terminating a contract and of course, there are grounds upon which a contract cannot be terminated.

Unconscionable Contract – When a contract is so one-sided an unfair to the other party, then a Florida court may find that the contract is unconscionable, which renders it void.

We will add more topics to this contract law section soon.  First up will be a section on contract interpretation issues under Florida law.

Breach of Contract

A breach of contract occurs when one party to the contract fails to perform, or refuses to perform, any act or promise that forms part of the contract, without a valid legal excuse.  Some examples of breach of contract include.


Defenses to Breach of Contract

Affirmative Defenses and defenses that amount to a denial.  Affirmative defenses do not bring in new facts to contest the Plaintiff’s claims, in fact, an affirmative defense admits the claims made by the Plaintiff.


Breach of Contract Lawsuit

When two parties sign a contract, they generally think they will avoid a breach of contract lawsuit and that both sides will live up to the duties and obligations of the contract.  In the business world, as we know, things do not always work out as planned.


Attorney’s Fees in Contract Litigation

Clients always want to know if there is a way to get back the attorney’s fees they will have to pay to pursue a contract lawsuit.  Under Florida law, there are several ways to win back the attorney’s fees incurred.
