Never Assume That Maryland Law Will Govern Your Contract Dispute
February 1, 2019
You may be surprised to learn that there is no guaranty that contract disputes involving Maryland residents will be governed by Maryland law. A contract may specify that disputes will be governed by another State’s law. Additionally, if a contract does not specify any governing law, Maryland courts may apply the law of the State where the contract was formed. As a result, it is critical to determine what law will actually be applied to resolve any contractual issues prior to filing a claim.
