SAN DIEGO INTERFERENCE WITH CONTRACT ATTORNEYS

Law firm’s business
A wrongful interference with contract occurs when a third-party intentionally causes you or your business to breach a contract. This often happens when a third-party induces the other contracting party to breach the contract or disrupts your or your business’s ability to perform under the contract. Generally, such intentional interference will cause you or your business damage. The purpose of the law is to protect the parties’ freedom to contract with one another and to fulfill their contractual obligations without third-party meddling.

Inducing Breach of Contract

A party that intentionally caused another to breach a contract with you may be liable for damages. To prove that a defendant induced a breach of contract requires:
  • A valid contract between the plaintiff and a third party;
  • That defendant knew of the contract;
  • That defendant intended to cause the third party to breach the contract;
  • That defendant’s conduct caused the third party to breach the contract;
  • That plaintiff was harmed; and
  • That defendant’s conduct was a substantial factor in causing the plaintiff’s harm. Pacific Gas & Electric Co. v. Bear Stearns & Co., 50 Cal. 3d 1118, 1126 (1990).

Intentional Interference with Contract

  • A valid contract between the plaintiff and a third party;
  • That defendant intended to disrupt the performance of this contract;
  • That defendant’s conduct prevented performance or made performance more expensive or difficult;
  • That plaintiff was harmed; and
  • That defendant’s conduct was a substantial factor in causing the plaintiff’s harm. Pacific Gas & Electric Co. v. Bear Stearns & Co., 50 Cal. 3d 1118, 1126 (1990).
Related causes of action are interference with business relations and interference with prospective economic advantage, which do not require a valid contract to be in existence at the time of the interference.

Everything Matters

Foldenauer Law Group has prosecuted many business disputes for our clients resulting in settlements and awards of millions of dollars. We have defended business owners and obtained “zero dollar” and “nuisance value” settlements. We have litigated cases resulting in early case dismissals and through jury or bench trial resulting in defense verdicts. We have built our success on nearly 30 years of combined experience and have a proven track-record. It’s no accident. We work exceptionally hard to obtain extraordinary results for our clients.

We are selective. We limit the number of cases we accept at any given time to ensure that our clients’ cases receive the extra time and effort needed to achieve extraordinary results.

To us – everything matters.
