Businesses transact on agreements with their customers and partners. Oral contracts are legally recognised, but the terms of verbal agreements between parties are hard to prove in the eyes of the law. Putting things in black and white takes ambiguity and selective memory out of the equation. Our business lawyers take care of the broad terms and the fine print, to ensure your interests are well protected.
How contracts are drafted, its terms and conditions, affect the viability of the deals in a very real way. Should a dispute arise, the wording and interpretation of the contents of a contract become central to pursuing your claims. From drafting a fresh agreement, to vetting existing contract terms, and interpretation of the terms of an existing agreement, Yuen Law’s team of corporate lawyers can help you get to the final form of a contract most advantageous for you.
