PES Contract Clauses > Dispute Resolution Example 1
Dispute Resolution. In the event a dispute arises under, out of, or relating to the interpretation, application, or performance of this agreement, the parties shall first attempt to resolve the dispute by discussion and negotiation.
This example dispute resolution clause is very simple, binding the parties only to attempt to resolve disputes by informal discussion before other measures are taken, but not restricting either party from pursuing other options after such informal discussion takes place.
