Contract Entrapment

Breach Of Contract

Contract entrapment usually happens because of what’s in the small print. A lawyer can help you before you sign a contract and then fail to comply with the clauses. A breach of contract can be liable, when one or both parties fail to comply with one or more clauses in the agreement. The failure to comply with any clause in the contract constitutes to a breach of contract. Both parties who have signed the contract might be in breach, in which case one can counter claim the other. In other words, claimant A takes claimant B to court because of a breach of contract. But claimant B responds with a counterclaim because they claim that plaintiff A is also in breach of contract.

What’s In Small Print

We often talk about what’s in small print that can be overlooked. But the truth of the matter is that sometimes we are not clear on what’s in a clause. It’s not what’s in small print but what’s in black and white, which isn’t clear. In order to clarify some aspects of a contract, you need to get clarity from a lawyer. A lawyer will understand better something that looks either vague or complex.

Repercussions Of Signing A Contract

There are repercussions when signing a contract with clauses you don’t fully understand. You should get a lawyer to review the contract before you sign it. A legal expert is more knowledgable in a particular area. You might be a business owner but a business lawyer is the one who is qualified and experienced to understand every bit of text in a contract. Understand that you’re entering a monopoly game with your eyes blind folded, if you don’t consult with a lawyer.

Contract Entrapment

Never underestimated the importance of consulting with a lawyer. Once you sign a contract, it is very difficult and sometimes impossible to amend or terminate it. Contract entrapement often occurs when someone is unaware of the implications on some clauses. Some lawsuit costs could end your business and even leave you bankrupt. Before signing a contract, contact a lawyer so you don’t end up trapped with a contract that does not benefit you and can in fact be detrimental for your business.
