Contractual Disputes

Navigating contractual disputes requires a keen understanding of contract law and an ability to interpret and enforce contractual obligations.

MSR Solicitors boasts a team of skilled litigators with a proven track record in resolving disputes arising from breach of contract, interpretation issues, and contractual performance concerns. We work diligently to protect your interests and achieve the best possible outcome.

Types of Contractual Disputes We Handle:

1. Breach of Contract:

Our team specializes in addressing cases involving the breach of contractual obligations. Whether it’s a failure to deliver goods, provide services, or meet deadlines, we have substantial experience in helping clients achieve redress for breaches. Reference to the well-established case of Hadley v Baxendale (1854) allows us to navigate foreseeability issues and determine the extent of damages.

2. Misrepresentation:

In cases where one party relies on false statements made by the other during the negotiation or formation of a contract, we leverage the Misrepresentation Act 1967 and precedents such as Derry v Peek (1889) to establish misrepresentation claims and seek appropriate remedies.

3. Unfair Contract Terms:

We assist clients in challenging unfair contract terms and conditions, drawing on the Consumer Rights Act 2015. Understanding the precedent set in Cavendish Square Holding BV v Talal El Makdessi (2015) helps us navigate the delicate balance between freedom of contract and fairness.

4. Duress and Undue Influence:

Our team is well-versed in handling cases where contracts are entered into under duress or undue influence. We rely on key principles from cases such as Williams v Bayley (1866) to build strong arguments for setting aside contracts tainted by coercion or undue pressure.

5. Frustration of Contract:

In situations where unforeseen events make contract performance impossible, we explore the doctrine of frustration. Reference to Taylor v Caldwell (1863) and subsequent cases allows us to navigate complex scenarios and advise clients on the best course of action.

Our Approach:

At MSR Solicitors, we adopt a strategic and client-focused approach to resolve contractual disputes. Our legal team collaborates closely with clients, offering clear guidance on their rights, potential remedies, and the most effective dispute resolution methods, including negotiation, mediation, and litigation.
