Contract disputes can arise in many, many forms. Frequently, it is our experience that contract disputes can arise within a family environment concerning perhaps borrowing money or by some other business transaction.
Contract disputes can also arise in a commercial context in any number of ways. It is important to consider what steps can be taken at the formation of a contract in order to protect your position. For example, contractual agreements can be entered into in writing with certain provisions made to safeguard parties’ interests.
It is also important to understand that most forms of legal obligations can be bound by verbal contracts without the need for anything to be recorded in writing. When there is a potential breach of contract, it is important to understand remedies which exist including taking certain steps to protect or freeze assets on the dependence of certain actions. This is more informally known as diligence.
It is also important to understand how matters can be taken forward to litigation in order that court orders can be obtained to enable a future demand of payment or indeed that the opponent is ordered by the Court to implement certain obligations arising out of a contract.
