Avoiding Disputes and Litigation

Disputes usually arise from miscommunication, a change of heart, or unfulfilled expectations. The best way to avoid disputes in a business contract is a carefully and thoroughly prepared agreement. Considering and communicating each party’s expectations and creating methods to resolve disagreements in your business agreement, substantially reduces the chance of costly business dispute. However, sometimes a lawsuit is unavoidable, so it is important to draft a business agreement which provides for payment of your attorney’s fees and costs if the other party has breached the contract and you prevail in arbitration or court.
