Contacts are an everyday part of business life and a vital tool in protecting your assets. You will most likely have contracts with your customers, suppliers and various other parties such as your landlord and phone company. But although the implementation of contracts is designed to avoid potential litigation, occasionally disputes will nevertheless arise.
Some of the most common types of contractual disputes concern:
● sale of goods
● supply of services
● consultancy agreements
● sale of a business or shares
● commercial agents and distribution agreements
● franchising agreements
When disagreements crop up, they can cause major disruption to your business, prove costly both in terms of time and money and even damage the reputation of your company.
Resolving contractual disputes
As soon as you detect an issue which could potentially lead to a contractual dispute, you should take immediate action to try and put matters right and avoid any escalation. Whether you are unhappy with one of your suppliers or a customer is delaying payment, the sooner you take steps to resolve the situation the better. If an informal approach fails to have the desired effect or is not appropriate, you should seek legal advice.
