Breach of agreement and unfair business practice.
We entered into an agreement with an American sofware development company to develop a web application. It was a fantasy gaming application for the Indian Premier League cricket tournament. The project needed to be complete before April 1st 2014 at all costs as the league on April 16th. Many functionality issues still exist due to which we have not been able to launch even to this day. The application is error-ridden and not functional. The project cost is around $20,000. What is the best way to proceed legally on this matter?

Hi, if the software company has not met project milestones or any functional deliverables that are specified in your SRS/HLD/LLD then you are well within your rights to issue notice to other party. Also check your contract for dispute resolution(arbitration/jurisdiction). After issue of notice you can choose to initiate dispute redressal measures as per contract. Can claim damages also.
