Contract Negotiations & Disputes
Contractual disputes are expensive and time consuming and necessarily distract from the focus of your business. Inevitably however disputes do arise and it is crucial for parties to address them without delay in an efficient and focused manner.
At John Carruthers Solicitors & Solicitor Advocates we have experience of all types of dispute resolution including negotiation, mediation, adjudication, arbitration, to the highest level of litigation where it proves necessary.
The approach must always be a commercial one, with the aim of achieving a resolution that works for you and your business and impacts on your commercial dealings as little as possible.
To avoid contractual disputes it is worthwhile to take legal advice on your contracts to draft them as robustly as possible and to make sure that they accurately reflect the intentions of the parties. Clear and unambiguous wording is crucial. Contracts should always include provision for dealing with disputes if they do arise.
Good contract management will often prevent disputes from escalating and should help to identify potential disputes at the earliest stage. When a dispute does arise it should be dealt with efficiently at the outset to avoid escalating costs and entrenched positions. Lengthy disputes invariably damage the client/supplier relationship and incur extra costs and resource for the parties.
