Contracts in Business Law
Contracts are a necessary part of the operation of any business. It is
important to understand the basics of a contract and what to do when a
legal dispute arises. These legally binding documents are essential for
proper business operations involving employees, contractors, commercial
landlords and other individuals. These agreements ensure the proper management
and operation of a business. Because a contract is legally binding, if
one party does not uphold his or her end of the deal, the other party
can seek damages. A breach of contract is made if either individual or
entity does not follow through with their responsibilities.

in a court of law. Contracts are written documents that must include all

obligations of each party, boilerplate provisions, and a signature block.
Commercial contracts must be written in a way that does not violate any
law. At Barth Calderon LLP, our

intent of deceit. Fraud can involve a wide range of deceptive practices
but typically concerns the misrepresentation of a fact in the agreement.
