There's no denying that throughout your time as a small business owner you'll need to draft various contracts that should be legally defensible. In that case, you'll never be wrong in coming to the Hyland Law Firm to stipulate the clear terms that make professional life clearer for everyone to understand.
Basic Tenets of Contract Drafting
At the most basic level, drafting any contract involves one party setting forth an offer for the other party to accept. Before consulting us, it's wise to be familiar with integral aspects that make contracts work in legal terms. For a contract to be valid, it must adhere to a few basic elements:
- Intent to draft a contract
- Lawful subject matter
- An offer
- Acceptance of the offer
- Exchange of something of value
- In some circumstances, a written agreement
The drafting of any contract will naturally become complicated once counteroffers with modified terms are made. Furthermore, if initial offers are rejected or revoked outright, it's a good idea to enlist the help of a skilled attorney such as Charlie Hyland.
