Letters Relating to Legal Law and Legal Definition

Business and legal letters are necessary often and will make your agreement, letter of inquiry or contract serious and professional. Word of mouth agreements without paper work have often been a source of court hearings and it is best to get things in writing to avoid unnecessary court costs. Visual attractiveness accounts for much of your letter's impact. Short sentences, short paragraphs, bulleted points, indented paragraphs, subheads, etc. make letter writing more effective. Some people will just skim your letter, so engaging subheads and bulleted points help reach them instantly. A letter may be used as a confirmation of agreed upon terms when an oral agreement has not been reduced to a formal contract.
