Comprehensive Legal Advice on Contract Law

A contract is an agreement between two or more parties that creates reciprocal obligations that are enforceable at law. To form a legally binding contract, an offer must be accepted, backed by valuable consideration.

Contract law defines an “offer” as a person’s expression of willingness to enter into a contract on certain terms such that an acceptance would result in a binding contract. An “acceptance” is a person’s expression of assent to the terms of an offer. “Consideration” is an act, forbearance, or promise bargained in exchange for another’s act, forbearance, or promise.

We delivery quality legal advice regarding the following contract matters:

  • Contract formation: If a contract does not satisfy the basic elements required to form a contract, its provisions may be unenforceable.
  • Drafting contracts: You can count on our deep understanding of contract law and contract provisions to help memorialize the rights you intend to reserve or exercise by agreeing to the transaction in question.
  • Contract rescission: If some legal insufficiency in the contract’s terms or the other party’s performance exists, you can cancel the agreement to avoid having to perform your end of the bargain.
  • Contracts for the provision of services: State law primarily governs the interpretation and enforcement of contracts, with certain specific exceptions.
  • Contracts for the sale of goods: Contracts regarding the sale of goods are specifically governed by Virginia’s version of the Uniform Commercial Code.
  • Liquidated damages: A provision that purports to specify the amount and extent of damages resulting from a party’s breach may be enforced if it qualifies as a reasonable estimate of damages caused by a breach of contract.

Contracts touch on virtually every aspect of modern life. Whether you are subscribing to a media streaming service online, to purchasing real estate, obtaining a loan or credit card, renting an apartment, watching a movie at the theater, or updating a smartphone operating system, a contract or series of contracts were formed in the process. Do you know your rights regarding the activities mentioned above? If not, Keithley Law can advise you on your contractual and legal obligations.
