Contract Law

Almost all Tennesseans have entered into some type of major agreement in their lives, and many times contracts are not properly documented in writing and people unreasonably rely on a hand shake or verbal agreement. Other times when they are put in writing, they are drafted by individuals who may not be properly trained in the appropriate way to structure and write a legally binding contract that covers all aspects of the parties' agreement.

Below are some examples of when a legal contract would be necessary:

  • Contract agreement for home repairs and/or improvements.
  • Rental agreement
  • Purchase or sale of a business
  • Purchase or sale of personal property (cars, equipment, etc.)
  • Business partnership
  • Corporate mergers
  • Settlement agreements for disputes involving money or personal rights
  • Liability for events, commercial spaces and private property

The fact is, when it comes to forming contracts, the possibilities are limitless. We can help you in drafting a new deal or reviewing and consulting on an existing contract. 

Contract formation can be very tricky, and if a contract is not properly written, the potential liability can be tremendous. There are many requirements for a contract to be given legal effect, that many non-lawyers may be unaware of, like the requirements of consideration, mutual assent, capacity, and a legal purpose. 

It takes a well-trained attorney to know all of the ins and outs of contract formation and how to properly structure an agreement to make sure that it is a legally binding contract that truly represents the parties' intentions. At Tressler & Associates, we take pride in getting to know our clients, to fully understand their situation and needs, no matter how big or small, so we may ensure the client's interests are protected to the fullest extent possible. Ensure your peace of mind when it comes to making agreements with others by having one of our attorneys draft the right contract for you.
