Commercial Contract Disputes

Signing and producing contracts is an everyday part of business, whether it’s a contract with a client, a supplier, an employee or a partner. It’s therefore no surprise that there are times when a commercial contract dispute arises. Unfortunately, when it does it can pose a threat to your business, either reputationally or financially. That’s where we can help.

Our business legal experts have a vast amount of experience in commercial contract dispute resolution, working with businesses to ensure the best possible outcome.

What would cause a contract dispute to arise?

There are many reasons why a contract dispute may arise. Some of the most common causes of contract disputes include:

  • Dispute with an employee over contract
  • Dispute arising from a contract review
  • Dispute over an offer made in a contract
  • Dispute relating to fraud
  • Dispute relating to mistakes made
  • Dispute relating to a technical term within a contract
  • Dispute over commitments made not being honoured
  • Force majeure (unforeseen circumstances preventing performance)

Can a commercial contract dispute be resolved without a lawyer’s involvement?

When trying to resolve a conflict, you’re renegotiating the original terms of the contract without realising. The requirement for legal advice at this stage is imperative to avoid further future dispute.

Inspire Legal Group has lawyers who specialise in commercial contract disputes.
