Breach of Contract

This type of case is filed when either one or both parties claim that a contract was breached or broken. Breach of contract means failing to perform any promise that forms all or part of a contract without legal justification. A breach of contract can be material or minor. In a material breach of contract, the recipient receives something completely different from what was laid out in the contract. In a minor breach, the offending party has failed to uphold some part of the contract, such as fulfilling a specific deadline.

Intellectual Property Disputes

Intellectual property disputes commonly deal with cases involving patents, trademarks, trade secrets, domain names, and copyright. One of the most well-known cases of intellectual property disputes concerns the former file-sharing site, Napster. The site allowed users to download and share music files for free, but Napster didn't own the rights to the music being shared. They were sued by the Recording Industry Association of America for copyright infringement and lost.

Data Breach Litigation

With society's increasing reliance on technology, data breach litigation has become more prevalent than ever. This type of litigation can be filed when a company that has been cyberattacked fails to properly inform the parties involved. For example, if an online store has a data breach where all of their customer's information (address, credit card number, etc.) is leaked. Data breach suits can be filed by individuals, financial institutions, and other companies that were affected.
