CIVIL LITIGATION: Do's and Dont's

If you are anticipating a possible dispute with a party you have dealings with, remember it is always better to get everything in writing and signed by the other party so you have a better chance of proving your claims in court. If you are contemplating entering into an agreement with another, whether it be a commercial lease, residential lease, contract to purchase goods or services, contract to provide goods or services, contract regarding the sale or purchase of real estate, contract for joint ownership of a business such as a shareholder agreement, limited liability operating agreement or partnership agreement, agency agreement, consulting contract, security agreement, loan agreement or contract relating to the joint ownership of real property, it is a legal document whether it is drafted by an attorney or a layman. The parties will be bound by their agreement as far is it is stated. If crucial terms are not stated in the contract, the parties may not be able to offer verbal testimony to prove the mutual intent of the parties and in some circumstance may be required to fall back on the custom and usage in the community to prove the parties’ unstated intent.

 

Since many of the cases brought by contracting parties stem from their agreement and are in the nature of breach of contract claims, it is critical to make sure when you enter into a contract with a party that you have stated all of the terms agreed upon which form the basis of your bargain. If you do not, you may find yourself in civil litigation due to a deficiency in the document itself. Although it is impossible to predict or even in some instances avoid a lawsuit, because the other party fails to perform or other factors occur that result in the necessity of court relief, by making certain that your legal documents such as the contracts you sign are in order, you reduce the possibility of a dispute arising from such agreements.
