New York Contract Law

By Law Office of Steven R. Sutton  Dec. 9, 2013 1:05p

Contracts are generally written agreements between parties in which promises are made in exchange for some kind of consideration, usually financial payment. A contract means that a promise of duty is made between the parties. Many elements may form the basis of a contract, from an offer to perform some action in exchange for money or other consideration, followed by an acceptance of the offer, and a legal capacity to perform the action. The action itself must also be legal. A simple example of a contract is a roofing company's agreement to repair a damaged roof for a set number of dollars. Many terms and conditions may be included in the contract as agreed upon by both parties.

Breaches of contract are a common form of legal problem in the business world. They can occur between two business parties, between a business and a client, between partners in a business, or can arise in employment contracts, lease or rental agreements, real estate purchases and sales, and even in insurance claims. All of these transactions involve specific terms and conditions which must be met; if violated, the contract should be written so that the breach can be lawfully disputed to a resolution.

Underlying all of this is the need to have a contract drafted that addresses all of the potential problems that may arise in any contractual relationship. An attorney who is highly knowledgeable concerning contract law and who can ensure that all of the necessary details are drafted into the contract at the outset can help to prevent future disputes and problems between the parties.
