The size of your business will never dictate the level of service we provide; we cater to the needs of entrepreneurship at every level, in every form.

Contract Purpose and Characteristics

Essentially, contracts define the way business is conducted, holding each party responsible for certain actions by the terms of the agreement. For the best possible outcome, it is best to have the assistance of an attorney throughout the drafting, negotiation and review process.

In general, there are several elements that make up a legal contract. These elements include, but are not limited to:

  • Defining the parties: This refers to every individual or entity that will be a part of the agreement.
  • Purpose: The reason for the contract must be legal; illegal actions are not protected or recognized.
  • Offer and Acceptance: In this portion of the contract, we learn what actions, services or responsibilities are required by each party.
  • Consideration or Benefit: What does each party gain by entering into the contractual agreement? In a contract, considerations define the value and advantages of the establishing the relationship.
  • Terms and Conditions: This is a detailed account of each action a party will commit to performing.
  • Intent: This explains that all parties are aware of said agreement and are willing to be bound by its terms.

Once a contract is signed by all parties, it is considered binding. Signing indicates acceptance. Prior to signing, the contract lawyers of AHR strongly recommend legal review of the document on your behalf.
