CONTRACTS

Kentucky law on contracts can be complicated so you may want to consult with an attorney before signing one

Most contracts have four basic elements: mutual consent, capacity, legality, and consideration. A contract that does not fulfill all of the requirements under Kentucky contract law may be invalid.  The question then becomes whether you need an attorney to draft and/or review a contract before you sign.  We can review or prepare contracts for you to ensure your needs are met. 


Whether it is a business-to-business contract, a contract between individuals, or a contract between an individual or employee and a business, we can assist you with:

 

DRAFTING THE CONTRACT: Before we put anything to paper, we discuss any restrictions, demands, and goals that you may have regarding the contractual relationship between you and the other party. It is important to understand what you expect to receive from this legal relationship in order to draft a contract that accomplishes all of your goals. We will listen, analyze, and provide sound advice regarding the terms and conditions you should include in your contract to ensure you have the outcome you desire.  We will continue to revise the draft until we have a working contract that encompasses all terms and conditions you need to protect your interests.

CONTRACT NEGOTIATION: Once a contract has been drafted, it will be presented to the other party. In many cases, the other party may disagree with some terms and want to change them.  We have many years of experience as negotiators, and we can quickly resolve disputes so that you can move forward with a contractual relationship that meets your needs and does not leave you vulnerable should a dispute arise.

CONTRACT LITIGATION: Disputes can arise even with a well-crafted, legally binding contract. We will try to negotiate with the other party to save time and money; however, if necessary, we are fully prepared to litigate breach of contract issues and other contract dispute matters.

CONTRACT REVIEW: If another party is requesting you to enter into a contract, it is always in your best interest to have that contract reviewed by a contract attorney who is working just for you. We will review a contract for unfair or unacceptable clauses and inconsistencies before you sign the contract. We will suggest changes, if needed, to protect your best interests.

Do I Need A Kentucky Contract Attorney?

If you are conducting business with another party, regardless of whether that party is a company or an individual, it is in your interests to reduce your agreement to a written contract. This protects you in the event the other party defaults on any terms of the agreement or if there is a future dispute.


Before you bind yourself to the terms in a contract, you want to make sure the terms are fair to you and protect your best interest. Disputed contracts can cost time and money in lengthy litigation battles that can result in specific performance of the terms of the contract or damages for breach of contract. Avoid problems by hiring the right contract attorney from the beginning who will look out only for you and your interests.
