Contract Law

Contracts determine when promises are enforceable.  The fundamental requirements for forming a binding contract are an offer, acceptance and consideration.  To be enforceable, a contract must be formed by competent parties, who give their consent, to a legal agreement.  The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) affords consumer contracts unique protections.  One reason to sue over a contract is when one party commits a breach of contract—stops doing, or fails to do, what the contract states should be done.  Bode & Associates has decades of combined experience in dealing with contracts of all types, from simple sales agreements to complex commercial leases.  We are also experienced in contract dispute resolution and can obtain damages for you.

Bode & Associates has experience representing founders of a biotech company when a pharmaceutical company buyer repudiated the buy-out agreement within weeks of consummation of an intellectual property transfer.  Bode & Associates obtained a ruling affirming a parties’ rights under a buy-out contract, thereby restoring the terms of the multi-million dollar deal.

You need an experienced lawyer to determine whether there was a valid contract formed and whether that contract was breached.  If you are considering entering a contract with someone or if you are a party in a contract dispute we can review the contract for you and tell you if it will adequately protect you.  Please contact Bode & Grenier today for a free initial consultation.  To arrange this consultation, call us toll-free at 800-862-4942 or at 202-828-4100.  You can also contact us online by filling out the form on our Contact Us page
