The legal relationship between business entities will normally be set out in contracts. These should address the obligations of the parties in terms of the supply of goods and services and payment. The contract will also include other express and implied terms, binding on the parties.

Contract disputes often arise when one party claims that the other has failed to perform its contractual obligations. They might claim the goods or services provides were of poor or unsatisfactory standard, that obligations were not performed on time or that payment was not made fully. The parties will need to look to the contract to see who is right and who is wrong and often this is not clear. It is then that you will need expert legal advice on the interpretation of the contract.

Wellers commercial litigation solicitors have experience and expertise in a full range of contracts and advising their clients when commercial contract disputes arise. Such commercial contracts include those relating to

  • Sale and supply of goods and services
  • Agency, distribution and franchise agreements
  • Settlement agreements
  • Website terms and conditions.
  • Computer and IT contracts.
  • Services and outsourcing agreements.
  • Confidentiality agreements.
  • Settlement Agreements
  • Non-Disclosure Agreements

Our approach is to provide legal advice that is commercial and practical. We will consider our client’s business objectives and advise accordingly. Sometimes it is important to preserve business relationships so Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) via mediation or otherwise, may be appropriate. Sometime, however, we recognise that swift and robust action through litigation is needed.
