Contracts are central to business decisions and agreements. Contracts set the terms, lay out the rules, and embody the expectations of an agreement. If an agreement has been breached, contracts also hold parties accountable to their side of the bargain.
For a contract to be binding on the parties and legally enforceable, contracting requires the parties to follow certain formalities, such as an exchange of promises, an offer and an acceptance (sometime called a “meeting of the minds” or “mutual assent”), and the exchange of valuable consideration. A contract must also contain certain essential elements, such as the parties, subject matter, price, quantity, and time for performance. Whether all of these elements are required depends on the nature of contract.
The above is not an exhaustive list of requirements to form a valid contract. If any of these are missing, a court may find exceptions in certain cases. If these requirements are met or there is otherwise an exception, sometimes one of the parties breaches the contract, forcing the other party to resort to litigation to defend their interests.
In Florida, contracts are in part governed by statute; but more so than other areas of law, contracts is a creature of the wisdom and experience of the common law. This is because the different types of contractual disputes that can arise are almost endless, especially in our interconnected and ever-advancing age of information and technology.
The above are some of the general reasons why, in order to protect your interests, you may require the services of an attorney.
