​What is a good contract?

KOBALT legal is convinced that a good contract is an understandable contract. Never sign anything that you don't completely understand.

​We write contracts that are clear, understandable and don't leave any room for interpretation.

​Freedom to contract

Actors in Belgium (and in many other countries) are free to choose the content of their contract. But there are legal limitation to that freedom.​

​Trade contracts

There are many types of contracts. Sales contracts, employment agreements, even general conditions and privacy agreements which we encounter on a daily basis are contracts.

Every agreement between two parties, even oral, are governed by contract law​.

​Precontractual phase

​When you negotiate about an agreement, it feels like everything can just cease at any moment.

There are ways to have some kind of guarantee during negotiation. This is called the precontractual phase.​​ For example a statement of intent.

​Electronic contracts


​Europe ​forces Member States to ensure that 'their legal system allows the conclusion of contracts by electronic means'. The law of 20 September 2018 therefore provides that special categories of agreements (including the sale of ​real estate) can also be concluded electronically.

Invoice as proof


​On November 1st, the new business law came into effect and since then the importance of an undisputed invoice has indeed become even greater.

Previously a purchase / sale could be proven by means of an accepted invoice, now such an invoice counts as evidence for all agreements.

In other words, the invoice becomes very important evidence for the existence of contracts.

Choice of law


International contracts bring even more legal questions: which law is applicable for example? International Private Law governs this.
