Could using plainer language prevent litigation of contracts?

Oregon business owners need solid relationships in order for their companies to reach their full potential. Few companies can operate in a vacuum, and at some point, they will need to enter into contracts with others in order to conduct their business in a way that fosters success. The problem is that the language in those agreements can easily lead to litigation if the parties fail to understand their obligations.

An interesting legal issue was recently litigated in another state but the outcome will be likely be influential in the Oregon courts as well. The legal issue in the business litigation case is when can a company cancel an acquisition of another company when the other party's business sharply declines after entering the contract. The court was given the task of deciding whether the business of the firm had suffered a "material adverse change" after the deal was finalized.
