Linder Myers Business Dispute Resolution Service

Contractual Disputes

In everyday life, promises are made and transactions are entered into, from buying milk in a shop to selling shares in a multi-million-pound company. Unfortunately, it can sometimes be unclear whether your contract is binding, and what your obligations are under the terms of the agreement.

At Linder Myers, our Contractual Dispute experts will talk you through your options, and provide you with honest, straight-forward advice on how best to proceed. We can assess whether or not you have entered into a binding agreement with another party, and what your obligations are under the terms of the contract. Linder Myers understand that it can be a stressful time, and so we will support you step by step through each stage of the process.

 

The Terms of the Contract

Occasionally, the terms of a contract or a binding agreement can become unclear, particularly if the agreement is ambiguous or includes a term that was not originally intended. Alternatively, your interpretation of the terms of a verbal agreement may differ from that of the other party. Whatever your contractual problem, at Linder Myers, our professional and dedicated team have the experience and skill to assist you with your case, and will explain any legal jargon to you in clear terms.
