Serious disputes can arise when parties disagree over the meaning of ambiguous or vague contract language. Litigation is often the end result where the parties cannot reasonably anticipate the outcome of their dispute. This uncertainty causes the parties to evaluate their positions very differently, making the dispute difficult to settle.
But a contract that is properly drafted at the outset of a business transaction can avoid disputes. Specializing in residential and commercial leases, promissory notes, non-compete agreements, and asset purchase agreements, our attorneys draft contracts with an eye towards clarity and certainty.
The attorneys at Lieser Skaff Alexander apply years of business litigation experience to anticipate and address all kinds of disputes that may arise during the contractual relationship. Some of the things we do to help the parties understand their obligations include:
- Avoid use of open-ended terms
- Define performance standards
- Describe specific examples of material breach of contract
- Provide for written notice of breach of contract
- Detail the process by which the parties will resolve disputes
- Describe specific examples of damages that may be recovered
