Business Contracts

Why Do You Need a Contract

Everyone probably knows what a contract is. California Civil Code states that a contract is an agreement between two or more people, entities, to do or not to do a certain thing. On its face, a contract is not complex, but once someone sees a contract they may be confused. Contracts can be written, verbal, expressed, implied, complex, or very simple. If you are simply agreeing to pay someone to cut your lawn, then a Los Angeles business attorney is not needed to review that contract. However, if you are entering into a manufacturing agreement, then you should consult with counsel to ensure that your rights are protected.

Los Angeles business attorney, Eric J. Proos, knows what provisions are needed, what provisions will most likely be proposed by the other side, and how to negotiate to get you the most out of your contract.

What Constitutes a Contract?

As stated previously, at its core a contract is very simple. Under California Civil Code Section 1550 a contract consists of the following:

  1. A lawful object (such as a pencil);
  2. An offer to buy said pencil;
  3. An acceptance of the offer by the person selling the pencil; and
  4. Considering (money, trade, lawful service).

That is it, that is all that constitutes a legal, valid contract. So, why do they get so confusing? Well, the terms, the language used, and the other legalities that go into a contract can make contracts confusing. That’s why it is best to retain a lawyer to review, draft, or negotiate your next big contract.
