CONTRACT DISPUTES: NEGOTIATIONS AND LITIGATION
THERE ARE A LOT OF CIRCUMSTANCES WHY CONTRACTS ARE VITAL IN BUSINESSES
Almost with every transaction, a contract is drawn out of it. Everything stated in the contract must be true and legal, you, your partners, or your business can be investigated and sued if the contracts drafted are somewhat wrong.
A contract should be well written because it will be interpreted by both parties and others involved. If contact cannot be understood or interpreted in ways that both parties agree, a dispute may arise; and a dispute from a contract can proceed to litigation.
If your disputes happen because of a contract, you should call an experienced and qualified attorney who could handle the legal matters.

Contracts are usually written, some are oral. But most of the time, in businesses, everything is in writing and documented, so all the parties involved have a basis for every process. It is easier for business people to look back on what has been negotiated and dealt if the contract is written. A contact is considered to be breached once a party did not do or failed to do his obligation. Usually, when a breach of contract happens, conflicts arise, disputes between parties are starting and this is where the crucial part comes in.
The crucial part that comes in is how the dispute will be handled. Conflicts can be resolved through mediation, negotiation, or litigation. Both mediation and litigation involve a negotiation, it is the process that differs. In mediation, no judge or jury is involved, only the mediator and the two parties. The mediator is the neutral third person who will moderate the discussions and negotiations. On the other hand, in litigation, lawyers and courts are involved.
The advantage of mediation is that it saves time and money. It is faster, affordable, and it can preserve the relationship between both parties if they want to. No need for anger and courtroom drama where the parties have to bicker. In a mediation, it is just a discussion and a negotiation where you can air your ailing even the most emotional ones. This is something that is not usually done in court. Moreover, in mediation, it is the parties that decide on the outcome: an outcome that will benefit both. But in a court, it is possible that when the judge or jury decides, only one benefits, thus breaking the relationship further.
If you are a business person and you are facing a dispute because of a contract, do not delay a day for its resolution. There is a solution for that without involving the courts. Call Niemann Mediation today. We are here to listen and discuss it with you.
