Oral contracts can be binding. They are as rare as hen's teeth at that level of show business, but when family members are involved, its possible.

Moral: never mix business and family.

Came here to say this. Always be careful what you say in business because oral arguments are taken seriously and can be binding.

Are these the same attorneys that, based on a verbal assurance that he would never be prosecuted, let Bill Cosby give the deposition that brought him down?

Never mix anal contracts and family either.

Pornhub is crowded enough right now.

Oral contracts are binding. The problem is an evidentiary one, proving whether each party knew what the terms were and what evidence is there that they agreed to those terms. There may be specific types of contract that the law requires to be written (for example in the UK contracts for the sale of land must be written to be enforceable) but those are limited.

Yes, largely the same as most US jurisdictions.  You can't enforce a contract for land and in many jurisdictions a contract concerning monies above a certain amount.

The Courts are not fond of having to determine a) whether there is a contract or not, and b) (of more difficulty) determining what terms were in existence for this supposed contract.    Yes, an oral agreement can be a valid contract, but nobody likes to litigate that stuff and the courts don't want to put in the work to figure out the mess.

Bottom line, if you really give a damn about what you are agreeing about - put it in paper, don't rely on the idea that a "gentleman's agreement" and handshake is legally binding.

I'd like to bind her with some oral contact, if you know what I'm saying.  Oh.  You said oral contract.  Well, I stand by my statement.

i usually just ask if someone has found my keys in there.

Yeah, this is a 13 year old oral 'agreement'. Those do get enforced, but they have to be really specific. The revenue they are seeking wasn't even dreamed-of then, so it is going to get tossed. That is assuming there haven't been any ongoing actions maintaining the agreement for 13 years running.

If you run a talent management agency and you don't have carefully drafted written contracts, you are an idiot.  Also:  If you are talent and you let someone run around promoting you without a carefully drafted written contract, you too are an idiot, although I'll cut some slack because I expect performers to be a bit flaky.
