What is a Breach of Contract?
When you enter into a business contract, each party is obligated to follow the agreed-upon terms and conditions. If one party fails to follow any material contract clauses, this can be considered at litigation. When litigating a breach of contract case, you must make a legal determination as to whether the breach was material or immaterial.
The next step that most litigants miss is deciding whether the breaching party has a legal affirmative defense. Although the court may decide that a breach has occurred, if the defendant shows that it has a legal defense, and succeeds on that point, then the case may be dismissed. These are but some of the reasons to have a Denver contract attorney on your side.
Does Your Contract have to be in writing?
An offer under contract law does not have to be in writing. However, you must have evidence that it was communicated to the other party to be legally valid. The offer may be communicated by the offeror or at his direction. If the offeree hears about the offer indirectly, courts may not see this as a valid offer since the offeror did not actually communicate it to the offeree.
What is the difference between a void and a voidable contract?
A valid contract is a legally-binding contract that is made in accordance with all legal requirements. A voidable contract is an agreement that would be binding and enforceable except the circumstances surrounding its execution, or the fact that one of the parties lacks capacity makes the contract voidable at the option of one of the parties. A voided contract is an agreement which has no legal effect.
What is the Statute of Limitation in Colorado Under Contract Law?
Colorado contract law requires you to act within a three-year period (Statute of Limitations) for a written contract. If there is an oral contract then the statute of limitations period is two years. The statute of limitations starts to run when you know of should have known about the breach. This is very fact specific when seeking remedies for breach of contract.
Can a non-lawyer represent a company in Court?
If your company has a contract breach action, Colorado laws suggest that corporations and other legal entities are not allowed to represent their own interests in a state court proceeding in Colorado. Corporations must retain legal counsel. If a non-lawyer files an action with the court, the other side might request the court to reject documents filed.
