    Contract Law FAQs

    Contract lawyers specialise in handling legal matters related to contracts throughout the entire contract lifecycle. 

    Their responsibilities include drafting, reviewing, and negotiating contracts to ensure legal compliance, accuracy and protection of their clients’ interests. Contract lawyers also advise clients on contractual rights and obligations, potential risks and dispute resolution strategies. 

    A contract dispute lawyer will manage any issues that arise around a contract. With their expertise in contract law, these lawyers offer guidance and support, ensuring that contracts are fair, enforceable, and aligned with their clients’ goals.

    To be legally binding, a contract must meet certain essential elements: 

    • an offer by one party,
    • acceptance of that offer by the other party,
    • consideration (something of value exchanged between the parties),
    • mutual intent to enter into a legal relationship,
    • capacity of the parties to enter into the contract, and
    • legality of the contract’s subject matter. 

    Additionally, the terms of the contract should be clear, specific, and agreed upon by all parties involved. Meeting these requirements establishes the enforceability of the contract and the parties’ obligations and rights under the law. For support enforcing or disputing a contract, seek assistance from a contract dispute lawyer.

    Yes, employment contracts are legally binding in Australia. They establish the rights and obligations between employers and employees.

    These contracts can be in written or verbal form, but it is recommended to have written contracts to ensure clarity and avoid disputes. Specific legislation and common law principles govern employment contracts in Australia. 

    If you are uncertain about or wish to dispute certain clauses of your employment contract, contact one of our employment contract lawyers in Adelaide today.

    In Australia, contracts are primarily governed by the common law system, which includes principles derived from judicial decisions and legal precedents. Additionally, each state and territory has its own legislation that may impact specific aspects of contracts. 

    The national legislation, the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (formerly known as the Trade Practices Act), also plays a significant role in regulating contracts, particularly in relation to consumer protection and competition law.

    In Australia, a breach of contract occurs when one party fails to fulfil their obligations as outlined in a legally binding agreement. A breach can be categorised as a material breach, where it goes to the core of the contract, or a minor breach, where it is less significant. Remedies for breach of contract may include damages, specific performance or termination of the contract.

    Text messages can be considered legally binding in Australia, depending on the circumstances. 

    While traditional written contracts are generally preferred, courts may recognise text messages as evidence of a binding agreement if they meet the essential elements of a contract, such as offer, acceptance, consideration, and intention to create legal relations. Specific circumstances and the content of the text messages will be evaluated to determine their legal enforceability.

    Randle & Taylor Barristers & Solicitors provide legal advice in a variety of areas including family law, sales of business, building and construction law, drafting agreements, wills and estatesdebt collectionproperty law, residential leases and commercial litigation.
