Contracts are designed to establish parameters and form lasting and defined relationships. Contracts should be written in such a way that the conditions for both parties are clear, reasonable, and open to amendment should the need arise. It is important, therefore, that contracts be well written, thoroughly reviewed, and completely understood before being signed. All of this, ideally, should be done with the assistance of and counsel from a business attorney.
Unfortunately, there are times that even the best and most clearly written contracts come under scrutiny. One or both parties may deem something previously agreed to no longer be possible. Other times, one party may claim that the contract was not clear or they did not realize the extent of the agreement. Whatever the reason may be, sometimes contracts come under dispute.
When a contract dispute happens, it is not in your best interest to try to resolve it on your own. Legal knowledge and background are needed to best handle a contract dispute. A business lawyer is a necessity when handling a contract dispute of any kind. He or she can help you review the contract and determine whether the dispute has legal merit. Furthermore, he or she can help you settle on the best course of action going forward.
