Specialists On All the Contracts that Your Business Might Need
Even though the definition of the term “contract” is quite simple, there are complex distinctions that differentiate one contract from another. A contract can be either an oral or a written agreement that neither has to be signed, witnessed, nor sealed.
However, a formal agreement must be properly written, witnessed, and signed by the parties involved to guarantee its enforceability. While some courts in Florida might recognize some types of informal contracts, the standard contract recognized by the court must follow a specific set of guidelines in terms of language and format. In this sense, it is possible to classify the different types of existing contracts based on formation, nature of consideration, execution, or validity.
Divided into three subcategories – express contracts, implied contracts, and quasi-contracts – contracts based on formation are most rudimentary in terms of contractual relationships. For example, an express contract refers to an agreement established by an expression or a conversation. Differently, an implied contract is an agreement based on a mutual agreement that has not been expressed in words. Also known as implied-in-law contracts, quasi-contracts are not based on the consent of the parties involved, existing whether there is consent or not.
Contracts Based on the Nature of Consideration
Under this classification, there are two types of contracts – bilateral contracts and unilateral contracts. A bilateral contract is an agreement in which each party promises to the other to perform or refrain from performing in a specific way. Instead, a unilateral contract establishes that only one of the parties must perform or refrain from performing in a specific way.
Execution-Based Contracts Drafted by a Specialist Business Contract Formation Lawyer
Also known as “executory contracts,” contracts based on execution refer to contracts in which the parties have already completed their obligations. It is worth noting that while a contract no longer exists once the parties involved have satisfied the terms, this type of contract obligates the parties involved to continue performing their obligations in the future.
Looking at the validity of a contract, it is possible to identify five distinct classifications:
- Valid contracts
- Void contracts
- Voidable contracts
- Illegal contracts
- Unenforceable contracts
Valid contracts are legally enforceable. Void contracts impose no obligations on the parties involved in the agreement, which incurs unenforceability. A voidable contract is an agreement established under physical or mental pressure. Depending on the circumstances in which the contract was formed, a voidable contract may turn into a valid or void contract. As the name suggests, an illegal contract is an agreement involving an unlawful object. Lastly, an unenforceable contract is an agreement that has not met specific legal formalities to guarantee its enforceability.

Professional Guidance to Avoid Disputes and Problems in the Future
By choosing the right legal counselor(s) to handle their business contract formation, different businesses avoid potential issues and unforeseen disputes in the future. At first glance, inexperienced individuals without a law background may think contracts are a fairly simple subject. Nonetheless, one does not need to dive much deeper before discovering that contract law can be overwhelmingly complex at times.
The making of an enforceable contract involves a precise checklist that must be met to ensure legal enforceability. Even if a seemingly simple requirement is not met, the contract might not be recognized by courts. Individuals who choose to handle contracts without legal counsel are exposed to greater chances of disputes once the agreement is executed. Also, it is crucial to draft a contract the right way from the beginning, as revisions usually result in costly expenses.
Lastly, if a badly-drafted contract ends up involved in litigation, the odds of a less favorable outcome increase exponentially. Nonetheless, we are prepared to help you at any stage, and hence, you only need to contact us.
