I have a situation in which a b2b relationship is going sour

Resolved Question:

I have a situation in which a b2b relationship is going sour and we want to end the relationship. The other party is looking at the possibility of mediating or litigating the contractual agreement in order to demand additional performance.

The other party is difficult and disorganized and it seems that hey may have lost their copy of the original contract. If they ask for a copy of ours, do we have a duty to give them another copy? Since we want to end the relationship, does it make sense for us not to want to give them a copy of the contract for their scrutiny?

If you do not give them the contract, they will proceed to litigation and get it through that forum. It probably makes sense to give them the contract especially if you are terminating within the terms of the contract.
