Business organizations, excluding some trusts, are
creatures of state or federal law. For more information:
Agency and Contracts
Most business organizations are entities separate
from their owners. They have rights under the federal and state
constitutions as "persons." These legal fictitious persons can only
act through human agents. Thus the law of principal-agent (law of
agency) applies to most business organization transactions. In order
for the transaction to be binding on the principal (the
organization), the agent must have actual or apparent authority.
Competent business lawyers can assist your organization drafting
professional contract and agency agreements.
