By the time you have read to this point, you may be discouraged by all of the challenges discussed. It is important to know that most of these pitfalls can be avoided by careful drafting of the underlying contracts to the project. If a problem cannot be definitively resolved by the terms of the contract without dispute resolution, it is important that the contract’s language gives the parties a clear and cost-efficient path toward the problem’s resolution. If you, as the developer, go into this process with a plan for dealing with these problems, should they arise, then you will have more success with your business than those who rushed in without adequate forethought. But remember that regardless of whether the project is prospective, fledgling, or mature, teaming up with a law firm experienced in the biofuels industry will provide the proper support at any stage.
