Contracts or legal agreements define and govern every part of our lives, extending from business contracts, collaboration agreements or joint ventures, maintenance agreements, construction works contracts, loan agreements or terms and conditions governing a service or sale, and many others. The presence of a contract imposes a legal obligation on all parties bound to it.
Obligations contained in contracts are legally binding. Legally binding contracts may also be enforced by approaching court (usually through a firm of attorneys) and holding the contract parties to account to ensure each party discharges their obligations.
Having a written contract in place that has been professionally drafted by an attorney offers more protection to you, your business and your family. They can protect your assets and could save you from long, drawn out legal battles. Contracts help to ensure more transparency between parties and can help to establish and maintain trust between them.
