Contract Lawyer governs disputes between parties that have formed some sort of contract, which could mean written or oral, and are involved in a suit because one side considers that the other side has violated, or not performed as required by the contract.
Contract disputes may arise in several of different contexts. 1 major field of contract disputes is between suppliers of building and repair services, like contractors, contractors, and electricians, and their clients. Sometimes the client will sue because the service provider has not finished work as promised, other times the builder will sue because they have not been paid. Another common area of contract disputes is between sellers and buyers, as soon as a person agrees to buy or sell something at a particular price and then backs out or attempts to change the price. Contract disputes may also arise between employees and employers, tenants and landlords, and in many different scenarios.
Among the basic tenets of contract law is that individuals are free to contract at any way they wish. The court will generally read the contract that they way it is written and not judge whether it seems reasonable or fair. The court doesn’t, but enforce contracts that are illegal (such as a contract for the sale of drugs or sex) or even contrary to public policy. Also, in some instances the court might be unwilling to apply a contract where they feel one party was coerced or duped into entering the contract or when the contract looks so unfair as to be unconscionable.
Another difficulty in contract law is finding compensation. In general, the court will attempt to determine a financial loss and order the breaching party to pay damages suffered from the non-breaching party. Specific performance would be impossible in many cases because a individual might no longer have the goods they promised to sell, and forcing a person to act is too much restriction on liberty. Besides which, if a builder did a bad job initially, you might not want them to be those to fix the issue, particularly if they are presently resentful for losing a lawsuit and being arranged by the court. Specific performance may sometimes be awarded in situations between a unique piece of land, one of a kind item (such as a rare piece of art), or even the operation of a famed musician, athlete or actor.
