Contract Lawyer Port St. Lucie FL

Contract Lawyer Port St. Lucie FL

Contract law is a very broad area of the law.  Many clients think the situations subject to contracts are quite simple and very clear.  However, often issues arise which were either not addressed or even conceived of in contract, conditions precedent not fulfilled, critical elements not addressed.  There are other issues which may be collateral to any breach which could also create liability which had not been taken into consideration prior to entering into the agreement.

When issues arise as to the existence of a contract and whether there has been a breach the elements of the contract are evaluated and the defenses to nonperformance reviewed.  This is where the practice of contract law gets involved.  Was there an offer, an acceptance, and appropriate consideration.  When these elements are broken down as to whether there was mutual assent to the terms of the agreement (i.e.”a meeting of the minds”) the understanding between the parties may dramatically differ.

Was there a promise to enter into a contract versus a mere invitation to deal with preliminary negotiations?  Were there certainty and definiteness in the essential terms and were those terms communicated to the offeree?

It may be difficult to believe there are so many issues which arise under what would be believe to be clearly drafted and executed contracts, but it occurs frequently.  First and foremost, if you are entering into a difficult contractual situation, write down what you believe you are responsible to complete under the contract.  Second, hire an attorney and review your expectations with the attorney and allow him to review or draft the contract.  Finally, it is important to think about situations that may occur which are routine to the transaction and include remedies for these contingencies.

It is very difficult, if not impossible to cover all eventualities, but it is better to address as many as possible in the negotiation stage of formation than in court due to a breach.
