Contract / Transactional Law

What exactly is a Contract?

Black’s Law Dictionary defines a contract as an agreement between two or more parties creating obligations that are enforceable or otherwise recognizable at law.

Contracts are part of our every day existence. Some and certainly not all contracts that Eastham Law assists our clients with include:

  • Employment Contracts
  • Real Property purchase and Sale contracts (residential and commercial)
  • Non Compete contracts
  • Non Disclosure contracts
  • Equipment lease contracts and Equipment sale contracts
  • Purchase and Sale contracts for a business
  • Shareholder Agreements
  • Partnership Agreements
  • Operating Agreements for LLC’s
  • Pre-Nuptial Agreements and,
  • Marital Settlement Agreements.

Everytime you hire someone to fix or replace something in your home or place of business, you have entered into a contract. The contract is an agreement that involves performance and payment. Sometimes it is not a written agreement. A well drafted written contract will, however, reduce the likelihood of a dispute at a later time concerning what the agreement actually was. Even though the likelihood of a dispute with written contract over an oral agreement is reduced, it is not unusual for written agreements to be disputed which can lead to litigation which is another term for a lawsuit.
We at Eastham Law represent clients that are individuals, and/or companies such as Corporations, Partnerships, and Limited Liability Companies. As Estate Planning and Asset Protection Attorneys, contracts and agreements are often, if not usually, part and parcel of our representation. We primarily do all our representation based on flat fees. In other words, you will know the cost of our services before engaging us.
