Agreements and Contracts

Agreements and Contracts jpgThe commercial world is full of agreements between businesses and individuals.  While oral agreements can be used, and more importantly relied upon in Court,most businesses use formal written contracts when engaging in trade with each other.

The importance of contracts in writing

Written contracts provide individuals and businesses with a legal document setting out the ground rules of the relationship, the expectations of both parties and how negative situations may be resolved.

Contracts also are legally enforceable in a court of law.  Contracts often represent a tool that businesses use to safeguard their resources.

The process of creating a contract generally includes an exchange of information, discussion, negotiation, the drafting of terms and finally the execution of a formal agreement.
