Contractual Dispute Analysis
Contractual disputes can be as simple as a customer and supplier disagreeing on the amount of product supplied and the payments made. It is more likely to occur where there is a sale and a product return facility.
An example could be an audiologist ordering a product from supplier, where there is an arrangement that the supplier will replace product returned within a specified period. Unless both have good systems and record what specific product is paid for, there is a possibility that there will be a misunderstanding over what was or has not been paid for.
More complex issues arise in that include specifications for different elements of a contract. The failure to correctly record variations to the contract and factors that entitle one party to additional compensation or avoidance of completion date penalties are the genesis of many disputes.
Quality issues are the bailiwick of engineers architects and experts in assessment of quality.
