Legal counsel for the termination or repudiation of a business contract in Calgary, Alberta.

The stark reality is that business contract don't always proceed as originally intended. For what was anticipated, even with the best of intentions, is not necessarily within each party's control, such that there might well come a time during the course of a particular contractual arrangement that is necessary to effect the termination or repudiation of an existing legal agreement.

Termination provisions are frequently contained within the body of the contract, such that those termination clauses on occasion provide a means to effect the end of the contractual arrangement.

Nevertheless, most contracts lack adequate means to effect the termination or repudiation of the contract in the specific circumstances. As such, terminating or repudiating an existing legal agreement that the parties either negotiate the conclusion of their business relationship or resort to the adversarial process, be it through mediation, arbitration or the courts.

  Invention Assignment Agreement
Contracts should be made specific to the particular circumstances of the business arrangement, as opposed to simply attempting to rely on a generic template that is not designed to advance your company's financial interests, hence the significance of a contract lawyer drafting an invention assignment agreement.
Clauses often seen in such contracts might include some variant of:
"If xxx in good faith believes that any Invention constitutes a Non-Assigned Invention, then xxx shall inform Employee of that fact within thirty (30) days of receiving a disclosure under subparagraph a(yy) of this Paragraph yy (unless the parties agree on a different period of time on a case-by-case basis). If xxx does not so notify Employee and Employee nonetheless in good faith believes that such Invention constitutes a Non-Assigned Invention, then Employee shall inform xxx within thirty (30) days of the end of the period set forth in the preceding sentence, setting forth reasons for such belief. If within thirty (30) days of xxx's receipt thereof xxx informs Employee that it disagrees, then the parties shall attempt in good faith to resolve their disagreement. Employee shall bear the burden of proving that such Invention constitutes a Non-Assigned Invention."
