Latin Legal Terms


Conturbo – this Latin verb literally means to confuse; to distress. In the legal practice, sometimes unclear terms and conditions of contracts can confuse the parties and lead to misleading for one or for both of them. There are legal rules, applicable in some jurisdictions providing that misleading clauses of signed contracts could be legal base for claiming termination of the defective contract in court, and respectively for pulling out of the contract.

* It is a good idea to ask for the legal opinion of a lawyer before you sign contracts that are proposed to you by third parties. Lawyers are qualified and experienced in Law. They may advise you about the options to protect your interests better, resp. to negotiate on your behalf where needed, the clauses of an agreement.
