Contract Law

Contract Law Test

Contract law is also known as a branch of the law of obligations. In general terms, when the  parties  possess contractual capacity and in the eyes of the law agree that there is an agreement, one can say that there is a contract. This makes perfect sense when assessing the definition of a contract since it is laid down to be a written agreement which is legally binding between two or more parties which give rise to obligations which are enforceable or recognised by law. There are also requirements for a contract to be valid and easily enforceable which stipulate that one must ensure that a contract is written in the most clear, unambiguous and meticulous way possible.These arrangements can deal with a wide variety of topics, such as the sale and purchase of goods, services or property, the terms and conditions of employment, and the settlement of a dispute.

Our Contract Law Practice

A contract is a very important document. Here at Chetcuti Cauchi we make sure that first and foremost, the client's interests are protected. We do not get lost in legalistic verbosity and always seek to help the client understand the content of the contract in terms which he or she understands. The priority is always to make our clients aware of the serious implications that follow in the different stages of the contract. This is achieved by taking a genuine interest and becoming knowledgeable of our clients' industries and areas of commercial activity. Thus, our lawyers apply all forms of commercial contract documentation.

Jean-Philippe was a key advisor to me on the general European and in particular Maltese related tax, legal, accounting and secretarial aspects of a rather complex corporate group structure. We were operating in an extremely dynamic situation, and I was most grateful for his patience and understanding when we had to scrap the last idea and start all over again. He is highly professional, responsive and is excellent at finding practical solutions to difficult situations, whatever the time of day or night. He also has an excellent relationship with his team, and the service provided by his firm is intelligent, joined up and seamless. He is good humoured and imminently likeable and I look forward to working with him again in the future.
Silvana made considerable effort to understand our needs when engaged to do some work for us. The advice we received was comprehensive and took into account the bigger international picture as well as the Malta legal implications. At all times during the process Silvana kept us well informed about progress and delivered the work we needed on time.
