Since the law of contracts are at the heart of most business dealings, it is one of the three or four most significant areas of legal concern and can involve variations on circumstances and complexities. In some cases a contract can consist of several documents, such as a series of letters, orders, offers and counteroffers. Terms associated with different contracts are: “conditional” on an event occurring; “joint and several,” in which several parties make a joint promise to perform, but each is responsible; “implied,” in which the courts will determine there is a contract based on the circumstances. Parties can contract to supply all of another’s requirements, buy all the products made, or enter into an option to renew a contract. The variations are almost limitless.
When writing a contract, it is advised to have a contract law attorney glance over the terms to make sure all parties involved understand its” construction. Terms of a contract will be interpreted against the writer of the contract, so any failure to include specifics will be resolved against the contract drafter.
Contract lawyers can assist with drafting the contracts and in any litigation for breach of contract suits, enforcing agreements, and fraud. Verbal contracts are much more risky because different parties can have different memories of the terms. Due to the Statute of Frauds, verbal contracts may be unenforceable since the statute holds that verbal contract that cannot be performed within a specified time or involving over a certain amount of money is not enforceable. There are exceptions, but proving a verbal contract will be much more difficult than a written contract.
