Contract management and the agreement
‘Good agreements, good friends’
Formally, an agreement is a multilateral legal act whereby one or more parties enters into a commitment towards one or more other parties.
In principle an agreement is free in form, entailing that parties should be able to establish almost anything between each other, unless the law imposes certain formalities.
That also means verbal agreements are legally valid and enforceable, although it should be noted that providing proof of a verbal agreement is not always straightforward.
So as to make the nature and scope of the agreements clear, and to avoid evidential problems, an agreement is usually established in a written document signed by the parties, commonly known as a contract.
