 Contracts & Other Agreements


If you are about to enter into an important agreement, you should seriously consider having it recorded in writing.  While “handshake agreements” can work well, they can also create uncertainty.  This can become very troublesome further down the track when the unexpected happens or we forget the details.  Having your contract or agreement drawn up by a legal practitioner helps you anticipate issues which may arise in the future and reduces the likelihood of unexpected events causing disputation or financial loss.


Because Contracts and Agreements vary so widely, the legal fees associated with them will reflect the amount of time devoted to tasks such as taking instructions and drafting, as well as the factual or legal complexities involved.


Some common types of Contracts/Agreements include

Buying or selling businesses
Buying or selling real estate
Building, Renovating, Construction
Employment Contracts
Partnership Agreements
