A contract is an agreement two or more parties enter into with the intention of creating a legal obligation. Contract law provides a legal framework within which persons can transact business and exchange resources, secure in the knowledge that the law will uphold their agreements and, if necessary, enforce them.

Contracts either between individuals or businesses can come in many forms and therefore disputes are bound to occur.

Contract Dispute:

We here at Ismail Mohamed Attorneys believe that the sooner your contract dispute is handled, the quicker it will be for you to continue on your normal routine of business. With this in mind we feel that the benefits of settling out of court may be more beneficial to you. This can be done by:

  • Negotiation with the other party to the contract; even if you never come to a full agreement about what the contract required, you may be able to reach a compromise that leaves both parties a little unhappy but with a lot more money in their pockets.
  • Mediation to see if a neutral third party, such as what we provide can assist you work things out.
  • Arbitration; even if you don’t agree with the other party about what the contract requires, you may be able to agree that you will both be better off if the dispute is submitted to an arbitrator.

Drafting of Contracts:

Drafting or tailoring any type of solid written contract offers you the convenience of:

  • Ensuring that both parties to the agreement are fully aware of the contents of their agreement
  • Establishing transparency between the parties
  • Creating and maintaining trust between parties
  • Avoiding unnecessary disputes

We can assist with the drafting and execution of contracts.

Whatever you decide, and whatever course of action you choose you can count on the fact that we`ll be 100% behind you in your efforts to correct the wrong that has been imposed upon you.
