Contracts usually form the bedrock of business relationships between companies and their suppliers, vendors and, oftentimes, customers. These legal documents may seem like pages and pages of “legalese” to some people, but the terms and conditions within the documents can be of paramount importance if a dispute arises between the parties to the contract. So, how might a contract dispute impact your business?
Well, for starters, no business leader wants to see a disruption in their company operations. So, when a contract dispute arises, the first impression is usually frustration. That is completely understandable. However, most of these types of disputes can be resolved, in some way – usually through a careful review of how the contract dictates disputes are to be resolved. A carefully drafted contract can help limit disputes or, if they do arise, resolve them quickly.
Unfortunately, some companies may be party to a contract that includes ambiguity. That is the most difficult issue to encounter when it comes to contracts. A properly drafted business contract should be carefully worded, precise and comprehensive. Anything less will likely just cause problems.
