When two parties enter into a contract, both believe their written agreement clearly sets forth a mutually understood and clearly agreed upon set of obligations. All too often, however, as many a consequential lawsuit has evidenced, this is not so. And when the court sets out to determine the intended meaning of the contract, the result may be surprising and expensive, as the court notes ambiguity, redundancy, uncertainty, and gobbledygook.

Speaker:

Melvin S. Merzon, retired Senior Counsel, Navistar International; Adjunct Professor, Harper College Paralegal Program, College of Lake County, Discovery Program
