Contract Disputes

Contracts are promises that govern relationships between two parties. While both sides might seem to agree when the contract is being entered into, unforeseen circumstances can reveal differences in each party's understanding of the agreement. Contract disputes are governed by a nuanced set of laws that are designed to give each side the benefit of the bargain for which that side entered into the contract.

There are a variety of considerations that go into properly drafting a contract. Certain provisions of the law make some contracts unenforceable, while other contracts can be interpreted against the drafting party if not designed carefully. A contract might seem comprehensive to an untrained eye, while the review of an experienced attorney can reveal discrepancies in the provisions of the contract and vague terms that leave too much room for interpretation.

Even when a contract is well drafted, it can be one-sided or overly burdensome to one party. Some contracts impose strict deadlines and onerous obligations on one party to the agreement. When entering into a contract, it is crucial to make sure that the terms are fair and reasonable.
