Contract Law is an essential part of any business venture.
When you make a decision to enter into a commercial relationship or a maritime related agreement, generally those relationships are built on trust, and creating a formal contract isn’t at the forefront of your mind. At the time of entering into these relationships you don’t really foresee any problems arising in the future so contract law is the last thing on your mind.
However, it is important to remember that a contract, when drafted adequately, secures the rights and obligations of each of the parties involved. Although the contract is rarely looked at over the course of the business relationship, it is an essential part of protecting your rights, in fact it is the key reference point, should an issue arise in the future. This is why it is important you have the right advice about Contract Law from the outset of your venture.
Our job is to ensure that any contract you are considering entering, like a Commercial Lease, adequately outlines your rights and obligations. If it does not, then we can negotiate with the other parties involved to ensure the contract clearly defines your rights and sets out what you are obligated to do.
Alternatively, if you are looking to draft a business contract or commercial agreement then we will carefully consider the circumstances surrounding your business and ensure that the contract we draft is legally sound and abides by the relevant contract law requirements. We will aim to ensure the contract outlines all of the things necessary for you to conduct your business.
If you find yourself in a situation where the business relationship has deteriorated, between you and one or more other parties, then this can result in a stressful, timely and costly affair. We are well equipped to enforce the terms of the contract, assess the best pathway for terminating the contract as well as initiate or defend a claim for any breach of contract which may arise. It may be that all that is required is careful navigation through Dispute Resolution in order to resolve your dispute in a cost effective and timely manner.
We work hard to immerse ourselves in our client’s business in order to focus on your immediate needs as well as offering long-term support over the course of your business.
