we have a contract with a waste management company that ends in 15 months. There is also a "first right of refusal" clause which says at the end of the contract we need to show them quotes from new vendors and they can match the quote. Also there are pre defined liquidated damages. So if we want can we simply pay the liquidated damage and walk away? And if we are unhappy because they have been over charging and decide to leave at the end of the contract is their "first right of refusal" clause enforceable?
