Dealing with contracts are intricate matters in which individual parties can have differing interpretations of the law.
Did you know that Unilateral Contracts (where just one side promises something – for example, a promise of a reward) can be enforced?
How about oral contracts? They are legal as well and are matters that Hutchison Oss-Cech Marlatt can assist you with. We also handle contracts of sale, construction contracts, rental contracts, contracts of employment, distribution contracts, service contracts, leasehold, non-competition and partnership contracts.
Pretty much anything that is signed for, shaken on, or nodded to is a contract and something we can provide assistance with.
Contracts – Hutchison Oss-Cech Marlatt knows how to make them, how to interpret them and how to unravel them when the time comes.
