The reasons causing the debt relationship in the Code of Obligations; contracts are categorized under four headings: unfair acts, unjust enrichment and unproductive business. Mutual transactions between two or more people for a specific purpose are called contracts. The branch of law that deals with contracts is called contract law. The basic features of the contracts such as content, form, purpose, validity conditions and elements are regulated in the general provisions section of the Turkish Code of Obligations No. 6098. In the special provisions section of the Turkish Code of Obligations, the most common types of contracts in practice are discussed separately. You can examine many types of contracts in detail in the special provisions section such as sales contract, swap contract, donation contract, service contract, loan contract, construction contract against floor, lease contract, work contract, power of attorney contract.

Conditions of Validity of the Contract

Contract law is defined in Article 1 of the Turkish Code of Obligations No. 6098. The contract is established by the mutual and mutual disclosure of the will of both parties. The will statement can be either explicit or implicit. The validity of the contracts does not, as a rule, depend on any form. As can be done in written form, a contract is established with the verbal agreement of the will. It is more favorable to do it in writing for ease of proof. However, if a figure is specified in the law, compliance with this figure is the validity condition of the contract. Contracts established without complying with the prescribed form do not constitute a provision, they are invalid. If the contract is decided to be made in writing, it is imperative that the parties sign the contract. The signature can be either handwritten or secure electronic signature. Contracts law is defined as the branch of law that includes every phenomenon regarding contracts made. In this concept, which gains importance in establishing and maintaining the legal relationship between the parties, the debts, rights and sources of debt of the parties are regulated. Contract law has become more and more important every day. People who previously accepted the promissory note as a promissory note and did not sign a written contract, have now begun to make written contracts based on their experience and the cases they have heard. Therefore, the contract texts should be prepared by experts. As a successful Contract Lawyer Av. Melda Merve TEKCAN meets the requests of her clients with consultancy and litigation services while issuing the contracts between the parties.

Drafting and negotiating contracts is a critical part of your business, though one that many owners and operators give little thought to. While the core of your business operations is the sale of goods or services, the ability to provide those goods and services in a manner that is legally compliant, profitable for your organization, limits your liability and manageable for your business is created and protected by your contracts.

Contract Law

The terms and conditions of those agreements, whether they’re manufacturing agreements, licensing agreements, contracts for the sale of goods or other types of contracts, are essential to the health of your business. That is why working with an experienced contract lawyer is so important. Some of the most common types of contracts we prepare for and negotiate for companies working within Technology, Manufacturing, and Distribution include:
  • Manufacturing agreements
  • Technology and licensing agreements
  • Supply of goods contracts
  • Purchase orders
We also assist with a wide range of contracts associated with the establishment of a business, such as partnership and shareholder agreements. Although we represent business clients across a range of industries, our attorneys are particularly well-versed in the issues of concern to businesses operating in the technology, manufacturing and distribution industries.

The Danger of Form Contracts

In the Internet age, there’s no shortage of forms and templates for those who want to cut corners and save a bit of money up front by creating their own contracts. Unfortunately, there’s no one-size-fits all solution in business. It may save a bit of time and money up front to repurpose an existing contract for a slightly different customer relationship or use a non-attorney website to plug in basic information. However, those savings may be miniscule in comparison with the losses that can result from a poorly constructed contract that fails to anticipate risks and potential liabilities. As your contract lawyers, it is our job to ask the right questions and learn enough about your business in general and the specifics of the agreement we are preparing to make sure we address all of the critical issues. An algorithm cannot do that, and neither can a template.

Streamlining the Contract Process

Although working from a form generally is not sufficient for your contract needs, you do not have to start from scratch every time. We work with our business clients to streamline processes, including the creation of checklists that will allow clients to conduct their own simple reviews.

International Contracts

Constructing a contract that clearly and effectively protects your interests becomes even more complex when you are conducting business internationally. In addition to all of the considerations and possible pitfalls that must be considered when entering into any contract, you will have a host of new issues to consider. Our cross-border experience allows us to accurately assess the needs of companies doing business internationally and prepare contracts that speak to all aspects of the agreement, whether those issues are likely to arise at home, abroad or in transit.

Making it Easy to Get the Help You Need

If you are running a business or starting one up, there are many demands on your time. Often, the in-the-moment operational demands eclipse important but non-emergent issues like legal planning. We know the realities you are dealing with on a day-to-day basis, but also understand the risks of pushing things like reviewing and updating contracts to the back burner. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to get the advice you need and protect your business. That is why we offer a variety of communications options. In most cases, you are not required to visit our offices to work with us. We are happy to schedule meetings over the phone or through video conference if that is more convenient for you, and even to answer questions or collect information via email.

Contact an Experienced Contract Lawyer

Whether you have been presented with a contract by a vendor or partner and need an experienced contract lawyer to review the document before you sign or you are drafting your own contract, we can help. Do not risk overlooking something that could have a significant impact on your business: connect with business lawyers experienced in reviewing and drafting contracts and put that relationship to work for you. Call today to schedule an appointment so that we can learn more about your business and how we may best be able to protect your interests and ensure that your rights are protected.
