Q: What should I do if my agreement is unclear and I suspect a New York breach of contract has occurred?
A:Despite what popular opinion may have you believe, an ambiguous or unclear term in a New York contract does not automatically render the agreement unenforceable. In reality, the court determines the question of whether the agreement is enforceable. If you suspect that a breach of contract has occurred, but the provision in question is unclear, it is vital that you take the following steps as quickly as possible:
- Contact a qualified New York business litigation attorney. He or she will evaluate the facts and circumstances surrounding your claim and assist you in taking the proper steps for enforcing your agreement.
- Assemble all documents relevant to your claim, including the contract itself and any related paperwork.
- Gather copies of all written communications that may help to paint a picture of the totality of the circumstances surrounding the agreement between you and the other party.
- Create a timeline of events and take detailed notes to provide your attorney that will assist him or her in proving to the court that the totality of the circumstances dictate that the contract terms are enforceable in your favor.
