Business Contract Disputes 

Engaging in business can be a great way to earn a living and produce a profit, but when you sign a contract, there is always the risk that you might not get what you bargained for, and it can lead to business litigation. In this article, we’ll explore some common reasons for business contract disputes. And also how, with the help of an attorney, you can pursue justice and compensation. An attorney can also help you draft a contract before you sign to ensure that there are no potential risks.

If you have any contract-related concerns. Reach out to one of the experienced attorneys from The Sterling Law Group to discuss options. 

Fraud and Deception Are Common Causes of Business Contract Disputes 

When you sign a contract, you are putting the agreement with the other party to the contract in writing. The purpose of this is to ensure that all parties know what they agree to. Also, it works as proof for the court in case of fraud. Fraud and deception, however, might encourage you to sign a contract.  Fraud documents might seems to be entirely the agreement you desire. Unfortunately, the other party is not capable of fulfilling the agreement. 

If you have been the victim of fraud involving a contract with a business, you can take advantage of California laws protecting consumers. When you purchase something from a business, and they present the contract, they generally have greater negotiating power than a consumer, which is why these laws exist. To support the best outcome of your case, work with a contract attorney to ensure that your rights in the contract and under consumer protection laws are enforced.

Ambiguity Can Lead to Commercial Contract Disputes 

When you are drafting a contract, you agree to be bound to the contract. Is essential that the contract effectively communicates exactly what you are agreeing to. If the contract is not clear on certain terms, either party might misinterpret them. In this way, it can lead to a dispute. When the terms in a contract are in dispute, the courts can apply a definition for the disputed terms, or the parties can come to an out-of-court agreement. In either situation, you might not receive what you bargained for due to a poorly written contract that leaves open room for interpretation. 

Working with a contract attorney at Sterling Law Group, PLLC in the drafting or review of a contract presented to you – before signing – is the best way to ensure that what you sign adequately and clearly expresses the agreement terms.
