We understand how important contracts can be for your business. When something goes wrong with a key contract, it can have huge repercussions for your business. We can provide quick and precise advice to ensure that you can avoid a dispute, wherever possible.
Many problems arise because of a lack of clarity between businesses as to what they are getting, when they are getting it, or how much they are paying. If we are involved early enough, we may be able to assist you in straightening out the problem, allowing you to focus on your business. For instance, it may be that a meeting can help parties to get past their differences. Equally, it might come to light that the contract is wrong in some way, in which case we can advise on the laws of error or rectification.
If this is not possible, we aim to provide practical advice as to your real world options in dealing with the dispute. We keep abreast of the key areas of law (such as the modern approach to interpretation of contracts: Wood v Capita Insurance USKC 24, Arnold v Britton  UKSC 36, the implication of unspoken terms into a contract: Marks and Spencer v BNP Paribas  UKSC 72, or the growth of good faith in Scots contract law: Mayfly Containers v Monument Containers  CSOH 115, Unicorn v HSBC  CSOH 30) in order to ensure that your legal advice is correct. We can pick out the key points of dispute, and where necessary work closely with other professionals (such as surveyors and engineers) to protect your position.
If your business requires advice on a business to business contract dispute, whether it is beginning to develop or is full-blown, contact Miller Samuel Hill Brown for expert business to business contract dispute advice.
