Contract law governs the enforceability of legal promises. The fundamental requirements for forming a binding contract are an offer, acceptance, and consideration. To be enforceable, a contract must be formed by competent parties who give their consent to a legal agreement. A contract that ends up greatly benefiting one party at the expense of the other is not in itself illegal so long as the parties agreed to the terms knowingly and willingly. While it may not be necessary to have an attorney present to review every contract, for those really important contracts an attorney’s experience and expertise work to ensure that your rights a being protected and you are getting all that you bargained for.
