Contractual Agreement

New York

Asked on Mar 22, 2022

Can I create a contract that bars any form of dispute resolution (Jury trial and Mediation/Arbitration) if a client fails to dispute an invoice within 7 days of receipt.

I own a growing security guard firm and all my clients sign a service contract before we provide services. In order to reduce the stress of collecting from a slow playing client, I want to create a new contract that makes it impossible to dispute an invoice after 7 days of receipt.

While you may create a contract without dispute resolution, the issue is whether it would be enforceable by any court. Seeing that a contract is between two parties and disputes arise, by barring any resolution, it would essentially not afford a party an opportunity to be heard. I do not believe a court would allow of enforce such a position. If you need additional assistance you can find me on the Contracts Counsel website and I can provide my legal services to you.
