Q:
Under NewYork law, what happens when my contract is unclear as to a particular issue?

A:

The short answer is that any provision that is unclear is construed against the one who undertook to draft the contract. Therefore, if the other side to your agreement is the one who drafted all of the contract language, any ambiguity will insure in your favor.
