This problem may be ripe for litigation after the agreement is concluded, so it is important to carefully consider these issues and develop a certain language. The above points are a snapshot of the negotiable problems which arise in the context of lis tance agreements. Many other problems can arise and the above is intended to highlight the problems that have most often given rise to litigation.
