Save Money by Avoiding Litigation

In many cases, a well-drafted agreement can avoid litigation entirely.  Even where litigation is unavoidable, a well-written contract can reduce the scope of litigation, and motivate the parties to a dispute to reach a more efficient resolution.

Where Are You Contracting?

Attorney-drafted contracts often have a Venue provision which specifies where any dispute must be litigated, and a Choice of Law provision which specifies which law applies.  Have you agreed to settle any disputes far away from where you do business?  In another state?  Pursuant to the laws of another state?

Arbitration Provisions

Some agreements call for the use of an arbitrator, or private professional decision maker, to resolve disputes.  Many large organizations include arbitration provisions in their agreements.  An arbitration agreement may prevent a party to an agreement from being able to bring claims through the courts and can limit the types of damages available.  The arbitrator used for a dispute is generally selected from a list.  Because larger organizations tend to arbitrate more often, those arbitrators who are perceived to be more likely to favor the larger organizations tend to be selected more often by those organizations.  As a result, some have questioned the objectivity of arbitrators.
