Contract Disputes Solicitors

Both businesses and individuals enter into contracts every day, both verbally and in writing. Unfortunately, a number of these contracts will end up being breached and often, both parties to the contract will blame each other and a dispute arises.

Verbal vs written contracts

If the contract has been entered into verbally, it is likely there will be a difference of opinion as to what the terms of the contract were. Parties will need to collate supporting evidence to convince a judge that their version of events is true.

The fact that there was a written contract does not prevent there being any issues in dispute. There are several factors that you will need to consider. Common examples of these include:

  • Whether there were any agreed variations to the contract
  • Whether there were any unwritten terms of the contracts
  • If there were any variations to the contract that have been accepted by conduct
