In the business world, we make agreements and enter contracts all of the time. That is simply how business is done. In order to take care of our own affairs, we expect others to honor the agreements that they have made with us. Moreover, we usually depend upon them doing so in a timely and reasonable manner. If someone has breached a contractual agreement with you, or if you have reason to believe they will, it is always a good idea to speak with an experienced Sacramento business attorney who can advise you on mitigating potential harm, and who can help ensure that you get the benefit of what you bargained for.
It is important to know that not every agreement will constitute an enforceable contract. When in doubt, you should always consult with a Sacramento business attorney about how to proceed with an agreement; however, as a general rule a contract is binding if you agree to perform a service or sell a product at a set price, or in exchange for something else you need or want. Though not all contracts need to be in writing, it is always a good idea to memorialize them in case a dispute arises in the future.

Additionally, it is always prudent to consult with an business attorney before finalizing an agreement. Even if you are dealing with something seemingly routine and ordinary in the course of your business, it may be a good idea to speak with an attorney about how you can best safeguard your interests. It is all the more important to have a business attorney draft—or at the very least review—an agreement before you finalize it when valuable assets are at issue. One should always consult with an attorney when entering complex agreements, especially when entering into a joint venture, or when dealing with the formation, dissolution or any other major overhaul of your business.
