What makes a contract legally binding?

Creating a contract can offer you a peace of mind. However, contract law can be complex. It is essential that you make sure any contract you create or enter into is legally binding. This means that it can be enforced under the law and through a Georgia court. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, you need two specific elements present to make a contract legally binding.

What is "constructive termination?"

The fact that government agencies in Gainesville have the authority to terminate business contracts with you whenever they believe it to be in their best interests has been detailed on this blog in the past. Yet how does that process work? Typically, government organizations are viewed as being reliable partners. You would think, then, that is yours were going to end your agreement, it would give you ample notice. 

What is a breach of contract?

If you are like most Georgians, you have entered into many contracts so far in your life. Some were more important than others. Some were in writing; others were verbal. Some called themselves contracts; some called themselves something else such as your mortgage, your car loan, your agreement with your internet and/or cellphone provider, your order confirmation from an online vendor, etc. If you are married, your marriage license is a contract between you and your spouse.

Defining duress

The business contracts your company enters into with clients in Gainesville ensure you continued access to work and/or resources. Yet a bad contract can also lock you into a seemingly unfair agreement. You might tell yourself that you would never knowingly enter into a bad contract, yet many of those that we here at The Roberts Law Firm, P.C. have worked with once shared the same assertion. However, pressure-filled circumstances often prompted them to enter into such agreements. Could you reasonably be faced with the same sort of duress? 

The reality of business partnership disputes

Business partnerships can open endless doors, as they often help boost ideas and mold them into fruition. Yet most relationships -- including those of businesses -- face obstacles every now and then. Prior friendships, conflicting plans and expectations can sometimes get in the way of an otherwise thriving startup, but there are certain red flags to watch out for when combining creative efforts with another business in Georgia.

When can a client walk away from a contract?

The security that comes with working contractually in Gainesville is knowing that your contracted partner cannot just walk away from your agreement. There are, however, certain methods through which your partner can choose to seek an end to your contract: Either "for cause" or "for convenience." Understanding the difference between the two is vital given that the reason cited affects how much you may be entitled to collect. 

Subscribers caught in between dispute over insurance rates

Many in Gainesville may understand the reasons why businesses and professional organizations that are party to contracts may understand the motivation to dispute them if such groups believe their terms to be disadvantageous. However, when such disputes involve service providers who serve a large number of customers or subscribers, pressure can soon begin to mount when such parties are deprived of those services. From an outside prospective, some may even believe that the parties involved in these types of contract disputes rely in such pressure to achieve their aims. 

Addressing contract dispute matters

When it comes to contract disputes, the consequences can be very damaging for businesses of all sizes and across various fields. Our law firm knows that these disputes can present various challenges for businesses across Georgia, such as a great deal of stress, time, money, and other resources. Moreover, the outcome of a contract dispute can impact business relationships, affect a company's reputation, and have other repercussions, which highlights how important it is for you to address a contract dispute appropriately.

Fraud in contract can lead to lawsuit

As reported in USA Today, lawsuit filings involving a professional football team’s s co-offensive coordinators of last season are in full force. In these cases, the plaintiff-coordinators allege that the athletic department and other specific individuals committed fraud in persuading the plaintiffs to sign a new contract.

What is contract consideration?

Contracts may seem to be such simple things; you and/or your company agrees to offer a service in exchange for a benefit from another party in Gainesville. Yet essential elements must be present in order for a contract to be considering legally binding. For example, the service that you provide and the benefit you recieve for it are both classified as consideration. What is consideration? The National Paralegal College defines it as an object, act or promise of value that a promisor recieves from a promisee in exhange for its promise. Indeed, according Section 13-3-1 of the Code of Georgia, consideration must be present for a contract to be valid.
