    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are the elements of an enforceable contract?

    In Australia, contract law covers agreements that are made between two or more parties and are legally binding. In order for a contract to be enforceable, it needs to contain certainty to its terms and encompass the following elements:

    • Offer
    • Acceptance
    • Consideration
    • Certainty
    • Intention to create a legal relationship

    While it is possible for contracts to be made orally, it is always preferable to have a contract in writing to avoid any misunderstandings and to ensure enforceability if things do not go as planned under the contract. In Australia, contracts are governed by common law but may also be subject to certain pieces of legislation that impact contract law.

    Do you handle contract disputes?

    Yes, we handle contract disputes across a range of industries and applications. As a rule of thumb, there are three avenues available to resolve contract disputes:

    1. Informal negotiation
    2. Mediation and arbitration
    3. The court system

    Contract dispute resolution is handled on a case-by-case basis. Depending on the type of contract dispute that you are involved in, our contract lawyers will outline your options and provide a recommended course of action to secure the most favourable outcome.

    What are unfair contract terms?

    In order for a contract to be enforceable, it must be deemed to be “fair”. In Australia, contracts are tested against a three-limbed test of unfairness.

    1. Significant imbalance
    2. Not reasonably necessary
    3. Cause detriment

    Contracts that are overly long or written in terms that are not easy to navigate may also be deemed to be “unfair”. For businesses and consumers, it’s essential to understand the terms and enforceability of contracts before entering into them. For businesses or individuals that are unsure about the terms and enforceability of a contract, it’s important to consult with a legal professional who can provide proper guidance and advice.   

    Which industries do you work with?

    Our Sydney contract law firm works with clients across a range of different industries including professional, scientific, and technical services, construction, healthcare, retail trade, education and training, accommodation and food services, arts and recreation, electricity and water services, manufacturing, IT and telecommunications, manufacturing, and wholesale trade.

    How much does it cost to work with a contract lawyer?

    We provide fixed-fee contract law services that are based on the outcome – not the time spent getting there. Our cost-effective, fixed-fee business model empowers businesses of all sizes to consult with our experienced lawyers on all contract law matters.  For businesses that require ongoing support, HG Essential Counsel provides weekly/monthly costing structures for advice on tap.
