Contract FAQs

What is a contract?

A contract is a legally binding agreement that specifies mutual rights and obligations between two or more parties. Contracts are considered the foundation of the business world, for they are the axis of transactions. A contract defines the legal obligations of the parties and provides sections that outline how to terminate the agreement, as well as the consequences of not abiding by its rules. 

A carefully drafted contract will also include strategic provisions that will protect parties from potential risks and disputes.

How do I know if my contract is valid?

To be binding in a court of law, the contract must contain the following elements:

  • Mutual assent: Each party consented to be part of the agreement.
  • Offer and acceptance: One party made an offer to the other, and the latter accepted that offer. 
  • Consideration: There is something of value provided in exchange for the offer.
  • Capacity: All parties have the ability to knowingly enter into the contract.
  • Legal purpose: The contract cannot force people to do something illegal. 

Do I need an attorney to write or review a business contract?

A contract does not need to be written by a lawyer to be enforceable. However, only an experienced contract lawyer will be capable of drafting a suitable agreement and adding provisions that will address specific concerns and mitigate risk. 

Getting involved in a business contract without the legal advice of an attorney can have severe consequences. You may receive unfair compensation for your services, get involved in costly disputes with the other parties, be sued, and face other legal issues with onerous financial consequences. The cost of hiring a transactional attorney who will ensure you are in a fair position and free of legal risks is minimum, compared to the cost of going to court.

Why is it a good idea to get contracts in writing?

A contract in writing provides proof of the terms both parties agreed upon, which contributes to reducing the possibility of a dispute. With a written contract, the expectations of the agreement are clearly defined and that facilitates collaboration between parties or the mediation of a third party, if necessary.

What should I do before entering a contract?

Before entering a contract, you should carefully read the entire document, and take special attention to concepts or provisions that you do not understand. The best practice is to rely on the legal assistance of a contract review lawyer that will thoroughly examine the contract, assess how the agreement will impact your business, and negotiate, if necessary, more beneficial terms for you. 

How old do you need to be to enter a contract?

In most states, a person needs to be at least 18 years old to enter a contract. Also, this person needs to have “competency”, which means that the individual understands they are entering into a contract and has a general idea of its nature.

What laws govern contracts?

The basic law of contracts, which has been developed over centuries, is called common law. State statutory law also governs contracts, while federal law applies to contracts with the federal government. For contracts that involve the sale of goods, most state laws abide by the Uniform Commercial Code. Also, a contract may be subject to international law.
