Whenever there is a contract, there is the possibility the terms can be breached. However, as you and other Florida business owners know, it simply isn’t possible – or wise – to create and grow your business in today’s climate without contracts. At the Law Offices of Levi Williams, P.A., we are aware that contract disputes are common for business owners to encounter. One of the keys in successfully avoiding or resolving business disputes is in creating strong and fair contracts.
As FindLaw explains, many contract disputes boil down to a breach of contract. As you might expect, a weak, unfair or poorly worded contract has a higher probability of being breached. The following points illustrate some of the most common types of business contract disputes:
- One or both parties failing to meet a contractual obligation in a timely or correct manner, as outlined by the contract
- A breach in the agreement regarding the sale or purchase of goods or services
- Disputes brought by consumers when the company fails to meet contractual obligations guaranteed to the customer
- A breach in a non-disclosure agreement or other employment contract disputes
Creating sound contracts for customers, business associates and employees can be one of the most challenging aspects of being a business owner. Therefore, you may want to seek experienced legal counsel when creating or revising a business agreement. The same applies to protect your interests if a dispute arises. As our page on contract law explains, this area of law can be complex and usually necessitates sound legal advice.
