Contract Lawyers Florida
Contracts are legally binding agreements between two or more parties. There are two main types of contracts: express contracts and implied contracts. An express contract clearly spells out the terms of an agreement and is usually set forth in writing, whereas an implied contract assumes certain obligations exist between parties based on circumstance. For example, if you receive services or goods, it is expected that you will pay for such services or goods—even without a written contract. However, a contract should be used in virtually all transactions and can protect you from liability.
When either party fails to uphold their responsibilities or obligations as outlined in the contract, it is known as a breach of contract. Parties that renege on a contract may face substantial legal consequences for breach of contract. This is where a carefully crafted legal contract is especially important. Failure to explicitly state the terms of an agreement (responsibilities and obligations) means that those terms are open to interpretation; this can be avoided through a well-planned contract. The properly drafted contract also simplifies the litigation of the dispute if litigation becomes necessary.
