Contract Law

Ccmalta Default

Contract law is a branch of the law of obligations. When the parties which possess contractual capacity in the eyes of the law agree that there is an agreement, one can generally say that there is a contract.

Contract Law in Malta and Cyprus

A contract may be defined as a written agreement which is legally binding between two or more parties and which gives rise to obligations which are enforceable or recognised by law. For a contract to be more easily enforceable, one must ensure that it 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.

At Chetcuti Cauchi we have adopted a style of contract law which reflects our philosophy of keeping our eyes on the goal: achieving the client’s contractual goals and protecting our client’s interest. 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 unmderstands.

We realise how important it is to be aware of and foresee practical applications and implications at the various stages of the applicability of the contract. We do this by taking a genuine interest and becoming knowledgeable of our clients' industries and areas of commercial activity. Our lawyers supply all forms of commercial contract documentation. Our employment lawyers provide specialist advice on employment law and employment contracts and enjoy a wealth of experience representing employers in various industrial disputes and employment law matters.

We have a multitude of experts from the contract law field, as well as other fields, who possess a wealth of expertise, and who proudly provide comprehensive services that cover all legal aspects of forming, legalizing and terminating contracts. In order for clients to gain full advantage of contract, we take care of relationship between the two parties, clarification of contract’s provisions, nature of obligation, breach of contract, causation and remoteness of damage.
