Contract Disputes

Contract disputes arise where one or more of the party’s involved in a contract fails to meet their contractual obligations.  If a contract dispute occurs, it may be necessary to consider bringing a breach of contract claim through the Court.  The issue may arise from a breach of an express term of the contract, or an implied term, or perhaps even implied by statute.  For example, the Sale of Goods Act 1979 or the Sale of Goods and Supply of Services Act 1980.

What should I do if I have a contract dispute?

Depending upon the nature of the breach, the contract may be inoperable, irreparable, or the relationship between the parties has irretrievably broken down.  Before looking to terminate a contract as a result of a potential breach, legal advice ought to be sought.  Unlawfully terminating a contract, can pose a risk of a claim being brought against you.
