Frequently asked questions

What constitutes a contract dispute?

A contract dispute occurs when one or both parties do not agree on the contract’s interpretation or implementation. This can include disputes over scope of work, payment terms, delivery timelines, or the quality of goods or services provided.

What is the difference between mediation and arbitration?

Mediation may be voluntary, it may be required by a term of a contract or it may be court ordered. It’s a confidential process where a neutral third party, known as a mediator, helps the disputing parties to explore the dispute and attempt to reach a mutually acceptable agreement or resolution of the dispute. A mediator cannot determine any of the issues in dispute, but can implement an agreed position adopted by all parties to the dispute.
Arbitration involves a neutral person, known as an arbitrator, who listens to both sides and makes a binding decision to resolve the dispute.

How long does it take to resolve a contract dispute?

This is completely dependent on the nature of the dispute and complexity of the case, as well as the chosen method of resolution (negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or litigation). It also depends on the willingness of both parties to reach an agreement.

Some disputes can be resolved in a matter of weeks, while others may take months or even years.

Can I handle a contract dispute without a lawyer?

It is possible, but the complexities of contract law and the potential for significant financial and legal consequences make it advisable to seek professional advice.
Our contract dispute lawyers can provide crucial guidance, ensure your rights are protected, and increase your likelihood of a favourable outcome.

What should I do if I'm facing a contract dispute?

If you’re dealing with contractual disputes, it’s important to gather all relevant documents and evidence related to the dispute. Avoid taking any action that could worsen the situation, and consult with a qualified contract dispute lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your options and next steps.

How can I avoid contract disputes in the future?

    • To reduce the risk of having to undergo contract dispute resolution in the future, there are a few preventative measures you can take:

    • Clearly define contract terms
    • Ensure all parties have a mutual understanding of the agreement
    • Maintain open and clear communication
    • Regularly review contracts to address potential issues before they escalate into disputes
    • Our experienced team of contract lawyers can help to ensure your contracts are up to date and cover everything they need to cover.

What are the potential outcomes of a contract dispute?

Outcomes can vary depending on the dispute. Outcomes may include:

  • Renegotiation of contract terms
  • Monetary compensation
  • Specific performance (completion of contractual obligations)
  • Termination of contract

The resolution will also depend on the nature of the dispute, the parties’ preferences, the parties willingness to resolve the dispute and the decision of the arbitrator, or court.
