Commercial laws in Melbourne are applied in the numerous contracts, agreements and transactions which have been established over many years with the various courts passing judgement and establishing precedents and interpreting the various laws that have been made.
The commercial laws applicable ensure the security and efficacy of commercial contracts, agreements and transactions.
One of the basic principles of commercial law in Melbourne is to ensure that a contract, agreement or transaction with the client, supplier, partner or consumer will be binding and enforceable to provide clarity, certainty, as well as enforceability.
Security of Business Contracts, Agreements & Transactions
It is extremely important that in a democratic society the laws passed and applicable in the various transactions have certainty and are adhered to and, if breached, are able to be litigated, interpreted and enforced by Courts and Tribunals such as VCAT.
It is also extremely important for all parties to feel secure in the knowledge that a contract, agreement or transaction that they have entered into will be carried out and be binding and therefore, the company, business or enterprise may then prosper in the knowledge that in the event that another party breaches the binding contract, agreement or transaction, that there will be legal consequences by way of litigation and enforcement through the courts of law.
