How nominal damages can still benefit you

If there are any breaches within that contract, you have the right to file a lawsuit against them in court to obtain compensation for any damages they caused.

Contracts and contract litigation: Asking the right questions

One of the wisest pieces of advice when it comes to contractual agreements is to make sure everything in a contract is understood before the contract is signed. When it comes to contracts and contract litigation in Maryland, much stress might be avoided if the person entering into a contract with a vendor understands what he or she is really getting into when it comes to contracting for services or goods. Going it alone, without getting advice, may cause real problems down the road.

Breach of contract lawsuit for violating noncompete agreement

It is not unusual for employment contracts in Maryland and elsewhere to include noncomplete clauses. An employee who signs such a contract agrees not to work for the employer's competitor or to establish a similar business within a certain amount of time after leaving the job. This is to protect the company's trade secrets among other reasons. Employees who commit breach of contract may cause financial loss to their former employers.
