Whether it is written, oral, commercial or private, parties frequently fall out over the terms of agreement. This may be because one party has not performed an obligation, including a payment obligation, or there is a misunderstanding or uncertainty as to what those obligations are.
Our contract lawyers based at our Milton Keynes office can advise on your legal position and on what remedies are available to you.
Going to Court (litigation) is regarded as a last resort. We will take a commercial view of your case and carefully consider the cost/benefit ratio of any course of action.
Parties are now required to consider mediation at an early stage. We will advise you fully on the implications of this and on the likely costs.
Common examples of a contractual relationship are :-
The possibilities for disputes arising out of a contract are endless. Any contractual relationship can give rise to the possibility of litigation if one party feels aggrieved. This may be due to non-payment or non-performance of the other party's obligations, a concern that confidential information has been misused, breach of intellectual property rights, exceeding the terms of a licensing agreement, delay in performance, quality issues or unfair and oppressive contractual terms.
The availability of objective legal advice can be invaluable in such circumstances and ultimately can result in significant cost savings.
We will be able to advise you on whether you have a case to take or defend. We will also advise you on how best to proceed. A simple letter from us may bring the matter to a close, alternatively, another method of dispute resolution may have to be considered. 'Going to Court' is rarely the preferred option.

We work closely with you (whether corporate or individual) to identify objectives and agree on timescales.
