To properly understand your contract dispute we will need to know: • What was agreed, promised or said. • What (if anything) was done. • Is performance adequate or inadequate, why and to what extent. • If any documents evidence the terms of the agreement. This may include correspondence such as emails, WeChat or other social media messages, requests for tender, leases, terms of sale, purchase orders … the list goes on. They say that a verbal contract is only as good as the paper it’s written on. And that may be true. But not always. There are other considerations that may apply. See our sections on family disputes, partnership disputes and disputes involving companies, trusts or associations for some examples. Perhaps most importantly, in a dispute over a contract we take the time to fully understand your commercial position. Then we can advise you. Is it best to negotiate a new contract or to commence court proceedings over the old one? Do any claims made against you stack up? Our experienced lawyers have been involved in all types of contract dispute right through to disputes involving very large amounts of money. No job is too big or small. Contact us as soon as possible because strict time limits may apply.
