Every commercial transaction a business enters into will be covered by a contract. A contract at its most basic is simply a statement or statements of what each party agreed to do.

A contact could be in one document, or several (often it’s a matter of piecing together a whole chain of emails to work out exactly what was agreed). Often, what was agreed is in a combination of documents and verbal conversations. guide to solving business disputes

To complicate matters further, the courts will often insert clauses into contracts that weren’t actually agreed and will ignore some clauses that were!

And, if someone does breach a contract, it’s often difficult to decide what the injured party is entitled to by way of compensation.

At Cousins Business Law, our solicitors are experts in contract law and managing contract disputes. If you are about to enter into a business contractual relationship we can also help in drafting commercial contracts and providing advice on contract terms.
