Business models has been built. Marketing activations have been executed, money has been borrowed and invested into the business through my personal contacts. In the process I have opened up all my books and turned over operational control as well as negations with my current landlord to the acting CEO and CFO to transfer the lease into the new corporation. Once the transition was approved they terminated my participation in the partnership and are currently trying to leverage all the relationships that were introduced by me.

Thank you! Standing by

I am very sorry to hear this.

There are several ways in which a contract can be formed:

1. oral contract- basically a verbal promise. Testimony and witnesses can help establish an oral contract, as well as partial performance (partial payment of funds due, partial services rendered, goods delivered, etc)

2. implied contract-the court reviews the actions of the parties to see if there is an implied contract - similar to the evidence in #1 above.

3. written contract- this is the "traditional contract" where it is drafted and then signed and dated by both parties; it can also exist from a compilation of texts, emails, writings, etc.

Now to be a binding contract there must be:

1. offer

2. acceptance

3. meeting of the minds (intent to contract)

4. consideration (value given/received; a change in one's legal position).

So the court will look at the situation in the entirety and try to determine whether the parties intended a contractual relationship; if so they will then determine the parties' respective rights and obligations by trying to recreate the situation, and to come up with a solution that effectuates the parties' intent (the intent as indicated during negotiations).

Ask Your Own Legal Question

The court may determine the parties' respective partnership interest, as well as order a buy out or even dissolution.

For disputes under $25K:

Over $25k:

http://www.courts.ca.gov/1061.htm

The court will expect a party to first attempt resolution via a demand letter setting forth desired outcomes with a respond by date, sent certified/registered.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
