Overview:

Despite our best efforts as counsel and our clients’ best intentions, contracts sometimes result in disputes rather than commercial success stories. From interpretation of the terms of the deal to disagreements over whether one party adequately performed, the parties will need to find a way to resolve their dispute. What is the best way to do so? Do we go to court? Mediate and/or arbitrate? Renegotiate? Under any one or more of these options, looking to the contract and interpreting its terms will play a crucial role.

Contract law includes the rules set and administered by the state that determine when an agreement is enforceable, the grounds on which a breach of the agreement will be found and the consequences. Contract enforcement is one of the pillars of the rule of law.

Contract disputes are the most common disputes in business or commercial dealings. When any dispute occurs in between the parties, you may find the difference in interpretation of the contract. Contractual disputes can arise in between suppliers and retailers, contractors and subcontractors, in between partners, in between parties to a land contract or in a joint venture agreement.

Please join Dr. Jim Castagnera, Esq. as he discusses the various methods of resolving contract-related disputes, the benefits and drawbacks of different strategies, and what role contract interpretation plays in the decision-making process.
