Whatever the decision, the world of business, commerce and exchange are built on contracts.
Businesses purchase and sell products and services; they lease commercial space in office buildings, retail outlets and industrial parks; they hire employees and contractors; they enter into partnerships and joint ventures; they buy franchises, sell their businesses, and license or transfer technology. Each of these trans-actions, and many others, is governed by a contract. Contracts are the instrument by which the parties set out their understanding of “the deal”, their intentions and expectations.
One of the worst things that can happen in any business is that a party (you?) enters into one of these deals with another, invests thousands of dollars or weeks of time, energy and effort fulfilling your end of the bargain, only to discover that the other party is not able or willing to deliver on its promise, or doesn’t interpret the words in the contract the way you do. What then?
