Best Contract Lawyers in Melbourne

A contract consists of terms and conditions which are enforceable in the court of law. Contract lawyers in Melbourne draft, review, negotiate, and interpret contracts, keeping in mind the rights of the clients are protected and the obligations are clearly stated to avoid the possibility of disputes arising in the future. In short, contract lawyers guide through the issues which might take place due to contracts.

Disputes arising due to contracts will tend to be expensive, so it is best to get in touch with contract lawyers in the early stages to ensure everything is just and fair. A contract lawyer will be able to assess the risks that are involved and provide advice on the liabilities and will also be able to negotiate on your behalf to make crucial amendments in your best interest.

Meaning of a Contract

A contract is an agreement made between two or more parties and can be enforced in court. This could be a complicated document containing several pages full of legal terms and conditions.

To be enforceable in the court of law, a contract must have the following:

  • An individual or a party should have made a contract and the other party must have accepted and approved it
  • Everybody in the contract must be aware of their obligations and what they are expected to do
  • All the parties involved in the contract have either given something or taken something as a result of the agreement that has been made.

Key Considerations for Contracts

The focus while making a contract are an offer, acceptance, consideration, and intention to enter into a contract. A contract can be terminated at any time with mutual understanding.

Methods of general termination of a contract:

Performed termination:
This happens when the task set in the contract has been completed

Agreed termination:
As the name implies, agreed termination occurs when the parties agree mutually

Legal discharge:
This occurs through frustration or if there was any illegality

Breach discharge:
The affected party elects to discharge the contract or even take it to the court

Termination of an offer is when the person who makes the offer withdraws the offer formally before anybody accepts it. The other reasons a termination of offer would take place are: if the time specified has elapsed or the incapability of the person who accepted the offer is not able to meet the requirements.

Breach of contract:

A breach of contract occurs when one party does not comply with their obligations in the contract. The party affected by this can bring it to the court to get compensation. If the contract has been brought to the court, then compensation can be claimed by the affected party who filed the case. To have a clear understanding of a contract, a proper contract needs to be made. An ideal contract is one in which it states the terms clearly and is thoroughly read and understood by all the parties involved in it. If a proper contract is done, then it will not be necessary to look at it often as the parties are fully aware of their obligations and role to be performed.

Joanne is one of the most polite, caring and understanding legal professionals I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. She turned what looked like a non-winnable case into a successful case. I found her amazing, understanding and very considerate to the circumstances that had occurred. I would recommend her to anyone without a second thought. My sincere thanks Joanne.

Thankfully we have had very little dealings with lawyers so really wasn’t sure what to expect when engaging Joanne and her team to assist us with probate and the sale of our estate. I sent out several web enquiries and Joanne was only one of a very few that responded. So without hesitation we engaged the practise. Joanne is incredibly efficient with most emails literally getting answered within 30 seconds. She answers all queries with consummate professionalism and at no point have we been left wondering how things work during this very arduous process. Sometimes if we had forgotten to sign a form she would even send a staff member over to home to get us to sign. We have both been overwhelmed at her service and also the fees which are so much less then the bigger firms. We would recommend her and her team in a heartbeat.
