    provable

    Hi,

    could you please tell me whether it is possible to say:

    The contract may be terminated as a result of provable material breach.

    Or is there any better expression? Maybe "demonstrable"?

    Thanks a lot!

    Why tie your hands, Hanka?

    The contract may be terminated as a result of a material breach.

    'provable' just doesn't sound all that natural, but I'm not a lawyer nor an expert in the wording of legal contracts. I'd go with 'demonstrable', Hanka.

    So would I (though I've met lawyers saying 'provable').
