Frequently Asked Questions
What happens in the event of a breach of contract and what methods can be used to address disagreements and breaches?
In the event of a breach of contract, which occurs when one party fails to fulfill their obligations as outlined in the agreement, there are several methods that can be used to address disagreements and breaches.
A legally binding contract can be subject to arbitration, mediation, or lawsuits. Arbitration is a process where a neutral third party, known as an arbitrator, makes a decision about the dispute. Mediation, on the other hand, involves a neutral third party, known as a mediator, who helps the parties to negotiate a settlement.
Lawsuits are legal actions taken in court to resolve disputes. The party who believes they have been wronged can file a lawsuit against the party who they believe has breached the contract. The court will then make a decision based on the evidence presented.
It's also possible to include specific clauses in contracts that determine the methods for addressing disagreements and breaches. These clauses can stipulate the preferred method of dispute resolution, whether it be arbitration, mediation, or litigation.
