What Do You Need to Successfully Litigate a Contract Dispute?
While each contract is different, the basic nuts and bolts are the same. There must be an expectation and acceptance of those expectations and the language must be clear so both parties are fully aware of what is expected of each other. If this does not happen, then the parties and the court will turn to your contract to determine what was required on both sided. Your contract needs to be able to demonstrate where the fault lies.
Our firm can help you identify where the other party failed.
- Offer: You offer a service, the other party offers something in exchange – most often money. If either party fails to perform their obligations, they are in violation of the agreement and damages accrue.
- Acceptance: Both parties must agree to the entire contract. If any changes are to be made, the contract as written is no longer valid and must be mutually altered. In some cases, however, performing the services is considered acceptance of the contract.
- Consideration: There must be something given on both sides or it is not a valid contract. . In most cases, money is exchanged for a service, though this is not always the case.
- Mutuality of obligation: This simply means that both parties are bound by their agreement. .
- Capacity: Both parties must have a capacity to contract or they will not be legally bound. . Minors or people who cannot reasonably understand the contract are not bound to its terms. A. Singer & Associates, Inc. can help you understand whether or not a contract is fully enforceable.
- Writing: There must be a contract. While not all have to be in writing, there must be an agreement known and understood by both parties.
