Small town law with downtown service and results.
The business law offices of Boates offers experienced legal counsel and representation for clients who understand that contracts are a part of our daily lives. Unfortunately, individuals, professionals, and business owners often enter into contracts without a necessary understanding of the liability and responsibility they accept when they sign. Before you sign a contract, or ask someone else to sign one, be sure of where all the liabilities lay.
Not everyone who writes or signs a contract is a contract law attorney, nor should you have to be. At Boates, our Arizona contract law attorneys will draft contracts that are legally binding for all parties, and we will thoroughly read through and explain – in terms you can understand – what the provisions of a contract mean, before you sign.

What are the Basics of a Legal Business Contract?
How do you know whether you have entered into a binding contract?
A business contract is most easily defined as any legally enforceable agreement between parties, which results in an obligation to perform a service, provide a product, or otherwise do something for an agreed-upon exchange. Contracts generally contain these essential components:
All parties are of age and are competent to enter into a legal agreement. A mentally disabled person could not be held legally bound to fulfill the provisions of a contract s/he may have signed. Youth under the age of eighteen years may enter into legal contracts, but can often have them declared void before reaching legal age for their state of residence.
All parties must agree to the provisions of the contract. To be a legally binding contract, all parties promise to meet all provisions stipulated in the agreement. Contracts do not have to be signed agreements. A verbal promise by all relevant parties may meet the definition of a legally binding contract.
Boates will work with you to ensure that every contract you enter adequately protects your interests and meets your needs. Contact our Arizona contract law offices to schedule a consultation about your contract law issues.
