What is a Contract?

In order to create a legally binding contract, the law generally requires:

  • offer;
  • acceptance;
  • consideration;
  • mutuality of obligation;
  • competency and capacity; and
  • in certain circumstances, a written instrument.

However, contracts are not limited only to a printed forms that companies or individuals sign. Contracts may be formed by oral agreements supported by action or writings. 

Full Spectrum of Contract Representation

At Stokes Carmichael & Ernst LLP, we provide a full spectrum of contract representation to our clients.  This includes:

  • Protecting clients in a transaction by drafting a written agreement that spells out the parties rights and obligations and avoids future disputes.
  • Analyzing a company's own contracts to ensure enforceability and avoidance of loopholes or future problems.
  • Analyzing and advising clients on contracts they have signed or are considering signing with a third party. 
  • And when relationships sour, representing clients in lawsuits to enforce their contracts or to defend against allegations of breach.
