How do you handle disputes?
When one party wants to dispute a contract, they can start by sending a letter of termination to the party who issued the signed contract.
A contract termination agreement describes the conditions for cancellation. This could involve paying a fee or fulfilling additional conditions, such as erasing all mentions of a company to prevent any further relationship.
The terms and conditions of the contract may contain penalties if you willfully violate them. These differ per contract, and intentionally breaking a legally binding agreement without first seeking legal advice is not advised.
Working with a lawyer who is knowledgeable about contract law will help you avoid making any serious missteps that could lead to losses or legal repercussions.
Make sure you exhaust all other options before hiring a lawyer to pursue a contract dispute in court. It’s a simpler result if you can resolve any issues with the opposite party out of court. Miscommunications are often the cause of many conflicts. A conflict can ideally be resolved through alternative dispute resolution, such as negotiation, mediation, or arbitration, rather than in court.
