Pakistan Contract Law
We are specialist in Contract Law advice. Dr. Zaki (Senior Advisor PLA) is author of a book on contract law (Understanding ; The Law of Contract) and would be able to advise you on implications of applicable terms in a contract of any kind. As per statutes and case law you may not have to oblige the all terms in a contract due to its harshness. So to avoid the liabilities which are not required by contract law, seek an advice in fraction of the normal cost. In our drafting section​ you can also get help to draft a contract.
Pakistan Contract Law is based on English Common Law principles as developed by UK Courts. Further, Pakistan also have Contract Act legislation which is out dated and High Court and Supreme Courts are more obliged to follow the updated principles of contract law of UK Courts. Prof. Dr. Zaki is author on Contract Law, therefore, you will get specialized advice on contract law. Our Service also includes Commercial Contracts drafting and its performance oversight. We have been able to develop contract law in Pakistan by successfully arguing in Higher Courts.
Remember, any term in your contract which significantly imbalance your position in the contract is void and same is not enforceable and can struck off by the courts. That means whatever is written in your contract by the other party, if it is misbalancing you in disadvantage, same is not enforceable and you can get a court order to delete such term.
