Contract Formation, Negotiation, Contract Review?

The Restatement of the Law, Second, Contracts defines a contract as “a promise or a set of promises for the breach of which the law gives a remedy, or the performance of which the law in some way recognizes as a duty.” More specifically, a contract memorializes a legally enforceable agreement between two or more parties and spells out the promises and rules that govern the transaction.

The rules of a contract generally include:

  • the statement of relevant facts pertaining to the transaction;
  • each party’s promises to take action or refrain from taking action;
  • each party’s rights;
  • the terms that must occur before each party is obligated to perform;
  • each party’s discretionary authority;
  • how the contract will end;
  • what constitutes breach and remedies; and
  • the general policies that govern the exchange relationship.

Contracts may be viewed as forward-looking, problem-solving devices.

Attorney Holder’s key goal in contract formation is to accurately memorialize the business deal in a manner that unambiguously captures your goals and reduces your risks.

Do I Need an Attorney?

When determining whether an attorney is needed, you may consider the complexity of the business deal. An attorney may add value to the deal by analyzing deal-specific risks and offering methods of mitigation. An attorney may also ensure that the proper words or phrases are used to establish the proper standard of liability and legal enforceability of the contract. Moreover, you may consider whether you believe you will benefit from an attorney-led contract negotiation process.

There are online templates and “Do-It-Yourself” software programs that enable business owners and individuals to draft and form their own contracts. This makes contracts more accessible. However, properly formed contracts are legally binding and failing to fully understand and perform your end of the deal could result in litigation.
