Every business owner has a different personality. Some are hard-edged and are willing to do just about anything to protect their interests, even at others' expense, while other business owners want to interact with others in a way that is fair for all parties involved. There are others still who fall somewhere between the two.

A few months ago on the blog we discussed how contract disputes are often avoided by clearly articulating the agreement's basic terms. Far too often, the parties to a contract write language that is ambiguous or vague. This lack of clarity can be the death knell of a contract, leading to allegations of breach of contract. As a result, the parties may end up putting themselves at risk of financial and reputational loss. It can be challenging to recover from these damages.

On their face, contract disputes seem relatively straightforward. After all, in its most basic terms a contract is nothing more than a legally binding agreement between two parties. Yet, with this basic idea comes a number of nuances that are rife with legal issues. When, exactly, is a contract formed? When is it deemed enforceable? What acts constitute material breach of a contract? Can and should a breach of contract be cured before legal action is taken? What remedies can be sought when breach occurs?
