Contract law FAQs

What does a contract lawyer do?

A contract lawyer, also known as a contract attorney, provides legal expertise and assistance in matters related to contracts. Here are some of the ways a contract lawyer can help:

  • Drafting contracts. A contract lawyer can help you create clear, comprehensive, and legally binding contracts tailored to your specific needs. They will ensure that all relevant terms and conditions are included and that the contract adequately protects your interests.
  • Reviewing contracts. Before signing a contract, it’s crucial to have it thoroughly reviewed by a contract lawyer. They will examine the terms, conditions, and potential risks involved to identify any unfavourable provisions or areas of concern. The lawyer can explain the implications of the contract and suggest modifications or negotiate changes on your behalf.
  • Negotiating contracts. If you are involved in contract negotiations, a contract lawyer can represent your interests and help secure favourable terms. They have a deep understanding of contract law and can advocate for your rights, assist in reaching a mutually beneficial agreement, and help navigate complex legal language.
  • Ensuring legal compliance. Contracts must comply with applicable laws and regulations. A contract lawyer can ensure that your contracts meet the legal requirements and industry standards. They stay up to date with changes in laws that may affect your contracts and help you avoid legal pitfalls or disputes.
  • Resolving contract disputes. In case of a contract dispute, a contract lawyer can guide you through the resolution process. They will assess the situation, analyse the contract terms, and advise you on the best course of action. This may involve negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or, if necessary, representing you in litigation. Common disputes include property disputes, contract disputes, partnership disputes, IP disputes and more.
  • Providing legal advice. Contract lawyers have a comprehensive understanding of Australian contract law and related legal principles. They can provide you with legal advice on various contract-related matters, such as contract interpretation, obligations, rights, and remedies available to you under the contract or applicable laws.
  • Contract management. Contract lawyers can assist in managing contracts throughout their lifecycle. They can help develop effective contract management strategies, monitor contract performance, ensure compliance, and handle contract amendments, extensions, or terminations.

What does contract law cover?

Contract law involves law and regulations that enforce promises made between parties. It covers various aspects such as contract formation, terms and conditions, performance obligations, breach of contract, remedies, and dispute resolution. Understanding and adhering to contract law is essential for maintaining legal rights and obligations in business and personal agreements.

What makes a contract legally binding in NSW?

For a contract to be legally binding in New South Wales (NSW), certain elements must be present. These include offer and acceptance, intention to create legal relations, consideration (something of value exchanged), capacity to contract, and legality of the contract’s purpose. Complying with these requirements ensures the contract’s enforceability under NSW law.

What is an example of an unfair contract?

An example of an unfair contract is one that contains terms heavily favouring one party over the other, resulting in an imbalance of rights and obligations. Unreasonable exclusions or limitations of liability, hidden fees, excessive penalties, or clauses that allow unilateral changes without notice are all indicators of an unfair contract.

Our expert contract review lawyers can help to review and negotiate your contract documents to ensure a favourable outcome that protects your rights.

What makes a contract invalid in Australia?

A contract can be deemed invalid in Australia due to various factors. Some common reasons include: lack of genuine consent, misrepresentation or fraud, illegality of the contract’s purpose, incapacity of one or more parties to enter into a contract (e.g., minors or mentally incapacitated individuals), and non-compliance with formal requirements (e.g., written contracts when necessary). Invalid contracts lack legal enforceability and may be considered void or voidable under law.

Are text messages legally binding in Australia?

In NSW, electronic contracts are permitted by law, which means that a text message has the potential to be considered a valid contract. Electronic signatures, including typing one’s name, are recognised as legally binding. Consequently, an exchange of texts could potentially form a legally binding contract under NSW law.

I’m in a contract dispute - what do I do?

If you find yourself in a contract dispute, there are several things you should do.

First review the contract’s terms and conditions to understand your rights and obligations.

Open communication with the other party is crucial, attempting to resolve the matter amicably.

Gather evidence supporting your position and engage in negotiation or mediation if possible. In more complex cases, consider legal action to enforce your rights or seek damages.

If this fails, seek legal advice from a professional experienced in contract law, such as one of our contract dispute lawyers.
