Contractual disputes, whether private, commercial, written or verbal, are the type of claim most commonly heard before courts in the United Kingdom.
Contracts have been an essential part of civil, financial and legal society for thousands of years and although they have evolved from the covenants of old, disputes do sometimes arise.
Most frequently, a contract will become disputed because one party perceives the other to have failed in meeting its contractual obligations. Examples of such perceived failures are various, but they most frequently relate to such things as disputes surrounding payment, provision of services, agency and distribution, or sale, delivery and hire of goods.
Contractual disputes may also arise in other circumstances, such as where there is an alleged misuse of confidential information, infringement of intellectual property rights or breach of a licensing agreement.
