In life many people can become embroiled in a commercial dispute. This may involve the recovery of monies due or a complaint that obligations under a contract have not been fulfilled.
There are many different types of commercial disputes. They can include:
- Contractual Disputes. This may arise from such things as a commercial lease or a building contract. There may be a dispute arising as to whether one of the parties has fulfilled all of their obligations.
- Business Disputes. There can be disputes within a business, as between partners or as between the business and suppliers.
- Franchise Disputes. Disputes can arise as between the franchisor and the franchisee as to whether there has been compliance and/or fulfilment of obligations pursuant to the franchise agreement.
- Building and Construction Disputes. Often there are disputes as between the principal and the builder and/or contractors as to the performance and fulfilment of obligations pursuant to a building contract.
The form of a dispute can also vary. Often there may be a disagreement as to what the terms of the contract actually are and how same work to impose obligations on the parties to the contract. There may also be a dispute as to whether or not there has been fulfilment of the obligations imposed under the contract or a breach of those obligations. Then there may be issues arising as to enforcement of the terms of the contract by one of the parties.
