FAQ About Contract Disputes
Contract disputes can pose a major roadblock to business and companies
for many reasons. They can arise due to a suspected breach of contract
or when one party has forgotten or does not understand their responsibilities
as outlined in the contract itself. No matter what is causing the dispute,
it must be addressed and understood readily.
To better familiarize our clients with the potential obstacles ahead, we
have compiled the following helpful frequently asked questions:
When should I hire an attorney for my contract dispute?
You should see a contract dispute as a small fire in the fields of your
business and a business litigation attorney as the fire department. The
sooner you can get professionals to help control it, the less damage it
is likely to cause in the long run. Once a contract dispute arises, you
should not hesitate to let us know.
Should I collect certain information or documents when I’m in a contract dispute?
The contract in dispute itself should theoretically have all the information
you need to know about what is being contested, and a professional
contract review with our Atlanta business lawyers should be helpful. However, understand
that a contract can be more than what is on paper and also include everything
that led up to the contract’s creation. Try to get copies of emails,
texts, conference logs, and more that could be linked to the contract
and why it is now being disputes. The more you can provide us, the better
we will be able to pinpoint the problem and address it.
Should I talk to the other party’s attorney by myself?
Although your contract dispute is unlikely to involve any sort of criminal
violation, you should consider only speaking to the opposition with your
own attorney present. Whenever the stability or reputation of your company
is in the balance, it is wise to proceed with caution whenever possible.
With us by your side, you can eliminate the chances of saying the wrong
thing to the wrong person at the wrong time.
Will a contract dispute always lead to litigation and damages?
Not necessarily. As mentioned before, some contract disputes are misunderstandings
of the agreement as it was written, and the challenging party simply wants
to know what to expect of the contract and the other party. In such cases,
it may be possible to avoid getting into in-depth legal complications
if that is to everyone’s benefit. Of course, if damages and courtroom
proceedings are required, our Atlanta business attorneys are prepared
for that scenario as well.
