Securing business terms

A dispute between two companies, each of whom had supplied their own contract, and claimed that their own contract was relevant. If John’s client had to operate on the other side’s contract, they would be responsible for all fees and expenses within the business relationship. Known as a ‘battle of the contracts’, John compared the historical behaviour of the parties in their dealings with one another, and persuaded the court that all future transactions were to be on the company’s own terms, reducing future fees by thousands of pounds.
