Frequently asked questions

Can a commercial contract template provide sufficient protection for a business?

While a business contract template can be used, it may not be sufficient to provide the necessary protection for your business. These templates typically cover general terms that may not address all the specific details of your company. Additionally, without the guidance of a lawyer, using a template may increase the risk of errors or omissions, which can lead to disputes in the future.

Get in touch with us and our experienced lawyers can customise a contract for your business to ensure your interests are fully protected.

Is an oral agreement sufficient to protect my interests in a commercial transaction?

No, an oral agreement is generally not sufficient in a commercial transaction because it is difficult to prove the authenticity of such an agreement in court. Without valid evidence to support your claims, you may face significant risks and incur substantial costs in attempting to prove the existence and terms of an oral agreement in court. In contrast, a well-drafted business contract is considered a legally binding document that can provide clear and enforceable terms of the transaction.

Contact us to find out how we can prepare a written agreement that clearly outlines all the conditions of the transaction to avoid any potential future disputes.

What should I do if I find a mistake in a signed contract?

In the event that an error is discovered in a signed business contract, it is crucial to carefully examine the contract and determine the nature of the error. If the error is minor and does not fundamentally alter the terms of the contract, it may be possible to correct it through a written agreement. However, if the error is significant enough to render the contract unenforceable, it may be necessary to pursue other legal remedies.

To avoid any potential risks, it is highly advisable to seek legal advice as soon as an error is detected in a signed contract. An experienced lawyer can help you evaluate the situation and determine the best course of action to take to protect your interests.

What conditions should be added to avoid disputes in the future when drafting a commercial agreement?

To avoid disputes in the future, it’s important to have clear and specific terms in the agreement that outline the rights and obligations of each party, and address potential issues or risks upfront. 

As every agreement and company is different, it’s best to contact a lawyer to help draft a customised contract that suits your specific needs and ensures your interests are protected. This can help prevent future disputes and costly legal battles.

What are some examples of unfair terms and breach of contract, and what should I do if I believe I have been subject to them?

Unfair terms in a contract include exclusion clauses, unilateral changes to the terms of the contract, terms that require one party to give up their legal rights or remedies, and terms that are unclear or ambiguous. 

Breach of contract occurs when one party fails to fulfill their obligations under the contract, such as failure to deliver goods or services as agreed upon, failure to pay for goods or services, failure to meet deadlines or other timelines, or failure to comply with specific terms and conditions of the contract. 

If you believe that you have been subject to unfair terms or have suffered a breach of contract, you should seek legal advice.

What kind of commercial lawyer should I look for to ensure my contract protects my interest?

A good commercial lawyer should have experience in drafting and negotiating contracts in your specific industry, a deep understanding of commercial law, and the ability to identify potential risks and issues that could arise in the future. 

At our law firm, our team of experienced commercial contract lawyers possess these qualities and will take the time to understand your business goals and work with you to create a contract that fully protects your interests.
