Almost every transaction in our business or personal lives involves a contract of some sort. Whether we are buying or selling goods or services, we all enter into contracts on a daily basis. Sometimes things go wrong.
Managing a contractual dispute can pose some interesting challenges. A fall out with a key customer or supplier can damage your reputation and have a catastrophic impact on your business, as well as theirs. That’s why it is critical to maintain that relationship, even with an ongoing dispute. If managed right however, the resolution of a dispute can serve to strengthen business relationships and open up new opportunities.
At Clarke Willmott, we have a highly experienced team of contract dispute solicitors able to resolve a commercial contract dispute, no matter how big or complex, quickly and cost-effectively.
Common reasons why contract disputes arise
Our specialist contract solicitors can assist with all types of contractual disputes, including:
Issues arising from a contract review
Concerns around an offer you have made in a contract
Disagreements over the meaning of technical terms within a contract
Mistakes and errors
Disputes involving business associates or employees
Disputes where a party does not honour their commitment under a contract
How we can help
The cost of litigation and its impact on cash flow is a daunting prospect for a business of any size, not to mention your time and that of your staff. We understand this and factor the commercial realities of each dispute into our advice.
We provide focused legal analysis and robust strategic advice on how to steer a dispute towards the resolution that is right for the client, whether that is through negotiation, mediation or by a court’s decision at trial.
The sooner you address a problem, the more likely you are to avoid a dispute altogether. We recommend that you establish your contractual position at the earliest possible stage – a small fee at the outset can often save a great deal of heartache and cost at a later stage.
