Arizona contract law is complex, with nuances that can affect the outcome of a dispute. Under Arizona law, when the parties dispute the meaning of contract language, the judge reviews evidence presented by the parties to determine whether the contract language is “reasonably susceptible” to the interpretation asserted by its proponent. If, based on the evidence presented, the judge determines that the language is “reasonably susceptible to the interpretation asserted, the evidence is admissible, and is presented to the jury, to determine the meaning intended by the parties. Taylor v. State Farm Mut. Auto. Ins. Co., 175 Ariz. 148, 154, 854 P.2d 1134, 1140 (1993). Arizona law also has byzantine rules that may dramatically affect claims for damages. The Arizona Supreme Court has held that clauses in certain professional contracts limiting the professional’s liability to the amount of fees paid under the contract are enforceable. 1800 Ocotillo, LLC v. WLB Group, Inc., 219 Ariz. 200, 202, 196 P.3d 222, 224 (2008).
