Contract Interference on the Defendant. 15 Yard Penalty!

 

A successful business is one that is always flowing.

 

However, there are always reasons your business might slow down for a bit.  The one thing a business never wants to happen is where a client or a business partner is enticed to leave the business while they are under contract.

 

If that happens the business has a valid cause of action.

 

There are five elements to an action for interference with a contractual relationship:

 

·         A valid agreement between at least two parties-There must be a contract.

 

  • The interferer must have had knowledge of the agreement- An outside party must be aware there is a contract between the two parties.

 

  • The alleged interference must have caused the breach of contract-The outside party must have caused one party to abandon the contract.

 

  • The interference must be intentional-The outside party must mean to steal that person/business.

 

  • The interference caused the plaintiff to suffer damages-The other party to the contract must be out money.

 

So, if you find yourself in this situation, contact a lawyer to enforce your rights.
