Are Verbal Contracts Legally Binding?
Verbal contracts typically can be upheld in court if the basic elements of a legal agreement are met. This includes a detailed offer in which the offer was accepted, followed by an exchange of consideration. Every party involved also needs to be able to establish his or her side in a contract dispute. Although it sounds straightforward, being able to meet the requirements in these verbal contracts in court can be complex.
In most Arizona courtrooms, the statute of frauds requires that some types of contracts meet a certain criteria. A written memorandum of the agreement needs to exist in some form or another, however, the contract in its entirety does not have to be in writing.
Anything that is written down needs to be signed by the party, or by someone with authority to act on behalf of the party to provide a signature, demanding that the terms of the contract be met.
Business Litigation Disputes Handled By Our Firm
For more than 30 plus years, Phillips Law Group has been helping many businesses in a number of litigation matters. This includes, but is not limited to:
Breach of Contract Claims
In any contract, both parties must agree to certain duties in order to meet the terms of an agreement. If a party misrepresents their obligations or fails to fulfill the terms outlined, the other party could file a breach of contract claim for damages. A contract could be voided if any party was a minor or mentally incapacitated.
The relationship between an employee and his or her employer is governed under state and federal laws. Most employment disputes happen due to mistreatment, harassment or discrimination. Other related issues could include not being payed overtime for hours worked or not being given paid sick leave when required.
Intellectual Property Disputes
The intellectual property of a business could include patents, copyrights and trademarks. Disputes that can happen when intellectual property is not being used correctly or used without the company’s knowledge. This could cause a number of serious financial hardships for any business that is victimized.
Landlord and Tenant Disputes
These kinds of disputes often occur when a landlord and his or her tenant disagree about certain things in the lease agreement. This could include issues related to rent hikes, property repairs, or an eviction notice. If a tenant is being discriminated against, such as for his or her race, sex, national origin, or religion, this could also be grounds to seek legal representation to help handle the dispute.
Partnership and Shareholder Disputes
These disputes can happen due to miscommunication and a lack of obligation on the part of the partner and shareholder. In cases where both parties are unable to make business decisions together, it is often because certain things were not disclosed properly at the beginning or there is a conflict of interest between one or more parties.
