    Unhappy unlikely event

    "In the unlikely event of a material dispute......" - this is the beginning of article called Audit Rights. How do you understand the word "unlikely" in this case?
    Thanks for your suggestions,

    Re: unlikely event

    It is not expected that such a dispute will occur - it is unlikely to happen.

    The writer does not believe there will be a material dispute, however if there is a dispute (the unlikely event) then the rest of the sentence after "dispute....." will advice the reader what would happen.
