Frequently Asked Questions:

Is an oral agreement binding?

A written agreement is preferable to an oral agreement in almost every case, and sometimes it is required.  While an oral agreement can be legally binding (e.g., if it governs a term that is shorter than one year and/or if it is “reasonable, equitable, conscionable and made in good faith”), it is often harder to prove than a written agreement.
