Contractual disputes

 

If you have a dispute over a contract, our solicitors can help you to resolve the issues. Usually contract disputes arise as a result of interpretation of clauses but they can arise from for various reasons. Our solicitors will gather all the relevant information you have about your dispute and talk you though your options in order to find you the best possible outcome.


It is best to seek legal advice at the outside of a contractual dispute to ensure that you have correctly interpreted the clause at issue as this could have cost consequences if the other party was to issue court proceedings.

 

Resolving your contract dispute with a solicitor

If your contract dispute needs resolving by a solicitor, our usually way of working is to fully understand your intentions and reasoning for entering into contract and your desired outcome.We will assess the strength and weaknesses of your dispute and provide you with the legal options and cost estimate to achieve the desired result. This does not necessarily mean issuing court proceedings. Many contractual disputes are settled by way of negotiation and our solicitors can assist with ‘thinking outside the box’ to achieve desired results.

 

What are the typical types of contract disputes?

Typical types of contractual disputes include breach of contract relating to a specific term of the contract, for example, receiving goods by a specified time and the effect this has caused for example financial loss. Another frequent instruction is a breach of contract relating to termination and discharge of contract. It is important to ensure you have the strengths of your positon assessed by one of our solicitors and it may be a breach exists with regards to providing valid notice to terminate.

 

There are usually provisions contained within the contract regarding what to do when a dispute arises and our solicitors can advise and assist in ensuring you comply with term of the contract in reaching a resolution.

 

At Fishers we have been helping consumers settle disputes in and out of court. If you are after legal advice you can either make an enquiry, request a call back, or call us on 01530 412167.
