Contract disputes

Contract law pervades every aspect of our lives

Buying a loaf of bread in a shop, entering into a tenancy agreement, buying a house and starting a new job are just examples of situations where contracts arise. Disputes often arise in relation to the performance of contractual obligations.

Such disputes may turn on the interpretation of a written contractual clause or on evidence regarding what was agreed orally. One party to the contract may believe that they have complied with an agreed term of the contract but the other does not.

The courts apply certain principles in determining what it was that the parties intended when they entered into the agreement.

Further, the law will often impose contractual obligations into agreements depending on the circumstances of the case and the status of the parties. A good example of this is the contractual rights that the law imposes into consumer contracts which cannot even be excluded by agreement between the parties.

We can assist you in bringing and responding to claims for breach of express or implied terms of contracts whether those contracts are in writing or oral.
