We encounter contracts in all kinds of situations in our daily lives and their importance, as well as the need for a disciplined and targeted drafting, is often underestimated. For example, contracts when building or buying a house, loan agreements, agreements in the current employment relationship, general terms and conditions, sales contracts of all kinds and, of course, complex purchase or project contracts for companies. In many cases, the layperson skims over the text and is surprised to find that, in the event of a dispute, the very points that were the subject of the negotiations were not clearly regulated in the contract. A good contract is characterized by the fact that the possibilities of interpretation for third parties, who have to decide in case of doubt, are reduced to a minimum, so that at a later point in time the text of the contract offers the solution to conflicts and a contentious or even judicial dispute can be avoided. Often it is hardly possible for an involved party to sufficiently recognize this third party view. With the "insider knowledge" and understanding at the time of the conclusion of the contract, a completely different interpretation is possible than would be accessible to a third party in the future or to the involved parties after some time. Frustration with a judicial interpretation that is negative in itself is often caused by an unclear provision in the contract, forcing the court to exercise its discretion based on less favorable statutory provisions or without detailed knowledge of the background.This is probably where the phrase "In court and on the high seas, you are in God's hands" comes from. But this does not have to be the case, or at any rate, the supposed uncertainty can be significantly limited by professional contract management and expert advice that focuses precisely on these details.
