Contracts are a big part of doing business, but contract law can be confusing and many questions may arise. What exactly constitutes “breach of contract”? Should construction contracts be in writing? Can another party’s silence mean acceptance? Is an advertisement considered an offer?

Whether written or unwritten, a contract is legally binding. And contract problems can cause serious damage to your small business if handled incorrectly.

 

A business lawyer will help you prepare smart, legally defensible contracts including:
