“Breach of contract” is a legal term used to describe the violation of a contract or an agreement occurring when one of the parties fails to fulfil the promises according to the provisions of the agreement. General examples are a breach of competition clauses.
Breach of contract is one of the most common reasons why contract disputes are brought to court for resolution. This is also referred to as non-compliance or violation of a contract. The focus in many disputes often centres on what can be proven as a material breach or violation of the contract.
Our private investigators help you provide hard evidence and investigate any breach of contract. In a discreet and objective manner, we obtain indisputable facts over a relevant period in order to document the breach, the extent of the breach, and any losses.
A Breach of Contract typically includes:
- Breach of competition clauses and customer clauses
- Breach of tenancy agreements
- Illegitimate use and access to intellectual property
We have testified in courts several times, but often clients use our evidence to reach a favourable settlement before a case is taken to court. This saves valuable time, as well as the cost of a long case in court.
Based on an assessment of the case and information available from the client, we develop an investigative strategy that often involves a combination of methods including specialised research, social media searches, interviews, surveillance, and in some cases, agent undercover operations. This is where our investigators or detectives approach the case by playing the role of customer or client.
All reports, results, and evidence gathered during the investigation are strictly confidential and the clients always decide what action to take. This is done in close collaboration with our professional guidance and the client’s legal advisors.
