Chicago Contract Disputes

Being able to negotiate, finalize, execute, and enforce contracts is an important part of business success. This is why successful businesses invest the time and effort to ensure their contracts are drafted with favorable terms, and include obligations that can be performed without default.

Businesses face a complex web of obligations stemming out of their relationships with supply partners, clients, and regulatory entities. In most circumstances, these obligations are regulated by contracts which govern the term and context of these relationships. 

When disputes occur in these contracts, it is not always clear who is at fault, or to what extent, especially where the terms of the contract are too vague or subjective. Regardless, your business deserves the security of knowing your contractual rights will be accurately and fairly represented in the event of a dispute.

We keenly understand the relevant principles of law regarding when a breach of contract has occurred, and we are prepared to employ this knowledge in obtaining just compensation for such breach. 
  • Unfair competition: Our attorneys are experienced in competition law and related legal fields.

Securing the Enforcement of Business Contracts

Apart from containing the obligations that bind companies in the conduct of their daily business, these contracts also contain the mass of rights that provide an advantage to the business. The experienced attorneys at The Law Offices of Haytham Faraj understand the importance of these rights and how they contribute to a business’ bottom line. We are equipped with the skills and determination to ensure these contracts are honored by your counterparties and that your business enjoys the rights it is entitled to. 

Contracts are regulated by laws that are almost as old as the field itself. Humans have been instituting and finalizing contracts since the start of civilization, and over this time, we have come to accept certain elements as vital to creating a valid contract. Our attorneys keenly understand the complex network of rules and principles that contribute to creating a valid contract, as well as the applicable exceptions. 

Generally, the law regards a contract as valid and enforceable when its formation includes the following elements: 

  • Offer: Every contract begins with a proposal of certain terms by one party to another. This proposal is regarded as an offer in law and is required to be capable of being accepted. This means it must be definite, clear, and made with intention to be bound upon acceptance. 
  • Acceptance: After an offer comes acceptance. This is regarded by the law as a clear, unequivocal, approval of the terms of an offer and assent to those terms. Acceptance must also be clear, definite, and intended to create legal relations. 
  • Consideration: Every contract must have some benefit that each party obtains from the agreement. In most cases, this consists of money going to one party, and some other benefit going to the other. 
  • Capacity: Finally, both parties must be capable in law to enter and perform contracts. Where either party has some factor that limits its capacity, the contract cannot be valid. 

When all these factors exist, a contract will be valid, binding, and enforceable. Our contract disputes attorneys at The Law Offices of Haytham Faraj, know what evidence will be most important in proving these elements, and we know exactly how to find it.
