Florida Business Contracts and Dispute Resolution
Unfortunately, business disputes are a part of the business world, and engaging in business with an individual or a business can lead to legal disputes. The best way to avoid disputes is to have strong Florida business contracts in place before business begins.
Florida Business Contracts
When two business entities decide to do business together, it is a good idea to put the terms of the agreement in writing. A written agreement is one of the best ways to ensure that both parties hold up their ends of the deal and neither party is taken advantage of. The contract should clearly define and set forth the expectations of performance by each party.
The best way to create a great contract is with the help of a skilled business attorney. An attorney can help be sure the contract complies with all laws, has no loopholes and fits the needs of both parties.
Resolving Business Disputes in Florida
What happens when one party fails to live up to the terms of the agreement? An attorney that has experience working with business disputes may be your key to working through it.
If a business dispute does go to court, there are several ways an attorney can help you through it. Sometimes, disputes can be resolved through a type of alternative dispute resolution proceeding, such as a mediation, instead of going through a trial.
Mediation is an opportunity for the parties to sit down with a neutral third party mediator and discuss their concerns, with the goal of working out their differences on their own. At the end of mediation, if a resolution has been found, a legal document can be drawn up and a court order issued to enforce the mutual resolution. It is important to prepare for mediation with an attorney beforehand to discuss possible ways to achieve a legally responsible and mutually beneficial resolution.
