Contract Disputes Archives

Contract disputes with city prompt filing of lawsuit

Like everywhere else in the country, Cleveland relies on private contractors for many of its projects. In many cases, everything goes according to plan, but in others, contract disputes arise. If the city and the contractor are unable to come to an agreement outside the courts, a lawsuit could result.

Ohio consumers may soon fall victim to contract disputes

Companies are in business to make a profit. In order to do so, they usually enter into contracts with other companies to provide products or services. Then, at times, companies are bought out by other companies, and the contracts that are currently in place may not be a good fit with the new situation. It appears that a recent corporate acquisition has resulted in contract disputes that may soon have an impact on some of the company's Ohio-based customers.

Employment contract disputes often arise from implied contracts

Resumes have been reviewed, interviews conducted and an offer of employment made. This scenario occurs daily throughout Ohio in shopping malls, schools, manufacturing companies and many other businesses. The jobs involved range from that of the shoe salesperson to a teacher to a business executive. While the basic process may appear to be the same, very little else is until it comes to the matter of employment contract disputes.

Contract disputes can often be avoided by putting it in writing

Contracts are a part of doing business in Ohio. There are contracts for the lease of property, purchase of property, employment service and more. While most would like to think that each party will honor his or her part of the contract, this is not always the case. All too often, there are contract disputes that, at times, lead to legal concerns.

Contract disputes affecting some Ohio viewers

After a long day at work or school, many Ohio residents like to go home and relax for a little while in front of the television. Many of these individuals have their favorite shows or news programs, and they do not want to miss out on these. Then, there are those who enjoy watching sports broadcasts such as the NCAA tournament. Unfortunately, due to recent contract disputes between U-Verse and Raycom Media, some Ohio residents have not been able to enjoy these favorites.

Breach of contract leads to layoffs and possible litigation

Business managers throughout Ohio make business decisions on a daily basis. It is their job to make sure that each business is operated in the manner in which its shareholders expect. Furthermore, when problems arise, it is the business manager's responsibility to investigate the problem and remedy the situation. In some cases, this remedy can appear to others to be a breach of contract.

A clause that no business contract should be without

Of course, you would not enter a contract agreement that you did not believe would be honored. Still, in the business world, nothing is guaranteed, so well-written contracts are a must for any project. The fact is, sometimes contracts get breached.

Common contract mistakes can cause big headaches

A well-written contract can offer you and your business important protections and help prevent serious issues from bubbling to the surface when you work with another party. Unfortunately, a contract that is not properly constructed could cost you large sums of money and eat away at your valuable time. 

What can I do if I signed a bad business contract?

A well-written contract is one that provides fair benefits and clear responsibilities for both parties. When you sign on the dotted line, you should do so secure in the knowledge that the agreement serves your best interests. And if all goes according to plan, both you and the other party will be well-served by your partnership.

Boilerplate contracts offer some savings, but big risks

All businesses look for ways to save money. This makes perfect sense as cost-effectiveness can lead to bigger profits. But there is a difference between finding sensible ways to limit expenses and placing yourself in financial jeopardy by trying to save a few dollars.
