Party definition


Party (noun)
related to contract

This is nowhere near as fun as it sounds! Sorry to disappoint you.

A party in terms of contractual vocabulary, means a person or a group of people. A contract, therefore, is an agreement between two or more parties that is put into writing and must be taken seriously.

Parties can be companies, businesses, countries or even just a single person. It is merely a good umbrella term so that the person writing the contract doesn’t have to keep writing names over and over and over again. Contracts have enough words in them already!

Gerry: So has your party signed all the documents, Jordan?

Jordan: Ah, no there are still some people left to sign their parts of the contract. It won’t take long.

Gerry: Okay, well as soon as they are ready please inform me. My party has signed all of the documentation required for this merger.

Jordan: I will contact them right away.
