LAW OF CONTRACT

Extract from an extract of Lexis Nexis:

“Given that “there is no ‘lawyer’s paradise’ in which all words have a fixed and precisely ascertained meaning, the interpretation of the insurance contract is a vexed issue, often giving rise to litigation.”

The intention of the parties to a contract is expressed in words which will in most cases be reduced to writing. However the language used to reduce the agreement into writing from time to time is unambiguous and gives rise to disputes which result in litigation.
