WHAT IS A CONTRACT?
A contract is a legally binding agreement between two or more parties that dictates the legal rights and duties of each party to the contract. Contracts are often signed for exchanges of goods or services and money. In order to be legally binding, one party must issue an offer and that offer must be accepted. Further, the contract must have “consideration,” or a bargained for exchange between the parties.
One thing given (a good or service) must be exchanged for another thing given (monetary). While contracts can be written or verbal, the law does require that certain types of contracts be in writing. Harris & Huge have experience in drafting and reviewing various types of contracts and can provide you with legal counsel on your rights and duties pursuant to a contract.
