Commercial contract disputes
Commercial contract disputes may arise if the law on a particular subject within the contract is unclear. A well drafted contract can help to avoid any legal uncertainty by including express provisions in order to reduce any application of any uncertain legal rules.
Commercial contract disputes may also arise if the language used within a business contract is unclear. Any business contract should be drafted in clear terms to avoid any potential disputes. A contract term that is unclear may be construed against the party relying on it.
South Bank Legal can assist in the resolution of any business contract dispute.
Commercial contract reviews
It is essential that business contracts are kept up to date to ensure that they remain appropriate for a particular business as the law and trading environments are constantly changing.
It is crucial to review and redraft commercial business contracts when a business has been involved in a contract dispute. A review and redraft will also be required when a term in a contract that leaves a business exposed to future disputes is discovered.
Commercial contract solicitors can review contracts based on a business’s specific requirements.
For example, we can explain a business’s obligations regarding a termination: in contract law, the cessation of the term of t... of a contract and advise businesses on how to enforce contractual obligations against another party involved.
Commercial contract solicitors can also identify any gaps or weaknesses in a business’s commercial contracts and allow such weaknesses to be remedied in a controlled environment.
