AVOIDING DISPUTES

Baldock Stacy & Niven Solicitors (BS&N) in Orange can provide professional advice on avoiding disputes including the preparation of any contractual arrangements.

At BS&N, we believe prevention is always better than cure. Don’t wait for a problem to occur. Contact our expert team if you require a business contract to be prepared, legal advice on an existing contract, or contracts to be assessed for the potential for disputes.

EFFECTIVE DISPUTE PREVENTION WITH BS&N

Even the best managed business will encounter a disagreement or dispute at some point. Most disputes occur because there is no clear agreement or contract in place for parties to refer to.

When entering into a new agreement or contract it is easy to focus only on the commercial terms of the agreement. This obviously can lead to problems if a dispute does arise.

Take the opportunity to step back and review a contract before it is concluded to analyse any potential risks or dispute areas. Business contracts are enforceable and parties entering into the agreement are bound by that agreement.

TIPS FOR AVOIDING DISPUTES

In all cases, prevention of disputes should be the objective.

  • Make sure that you read and understand all contracts before entering into any agreement.
  • The process of negotiating and preparing a contract highlights issues that both parties need to consider. If a dispute does arise, a written contract usually reduces the cost and complexity needed to resolve the dispute.
  • Seek legal or other professional advice if you do not understand any terms used in an agreement or contract.
  • Keep copies of all your signed agreements and contracts in one place so they are easy to find.
  • Develop a system to remind you of key dates and details in your contracts – so you don’t miss any agreed terms and conditions or commitments.
  • Commit to acting honestly, reasonably and fairly in all your transactions.
  • Ensure all staff and contractors are aware of their authority to enter into agreements on your behalf.
