COMMON LEGAL CHALLENGES
How To Look At Legal Issues
As there is no certainity that your contracts will not be challenged, you have to consider common legal issues that can arise.
- INVITATION TO TREAT: If no execution of a contract has been created (unlike a buyer purchases an item from a store and warranty is included), like a TV advert, these can cause issues.
- BREACH OF CONTRACT: With the right to sue someone for damages incurred, you can look to see what specific damages you can get in the form of specific performance or punitive damages.
- UNCLEAR COVENANTS: Expectations among the roles and responsibilities of each party need to be clearly defined which could lead to expensive lawsuits in the future.
GENERAL VS EMPLOYMENT VS SALES
Different types of contracts serve different purposes. We can discuss which are right for your company at certain times as well as varying stakeholders.
- GENERAL: These documents involved the business structure and design of how you operate. Non-disclosure and property leases fall under this category.
- EMPLOYMENT: Having the right staff agreements can make or break both profitability and culture. Non compete and independent contractors are here.
- SALES: You have products and services you sell and how to transfer ownership are through agreements such as purchase orders and bills of sale.
