CONTRACT ATTORNEY: Do's and Dont's

In order to have a valid contract, the parties must agree on the exact same terms or reach what is referred to as a “meeting of the minds”. There must also be adequate consideration for the bargain to be enforceable. Legal defenses to enforcement of a contract exist which include illegality, lack of capacity, fraudulent inducement, coercion and duress, among others. A written agreement or contract conveys rights, interests and obligations on each party to the contract. To be certain, as a party, that you are protected, you should always make sure your agreement is in writing and signed by the other party or parties to the contract. Verbal or oral agreements are only enforceable in limited circumstances and even when they are enforceable, the only evidence of the actual agreement is the testimony of the parties, which often contradicts each other. A written agreement, on the other hand, speaks for itself and does not present the proof problems inherent in a verbal agreement. After all, the main reason for having a written contract is to protect one’s rights, if need be, in a court of law or other forum selected by the contracting parties in their agreement. A signed written contract is the best protection a business or individual can have if a breach occurs by the other party to the contract.
