For this assignment you’ll be given a real-world scenario and you’ll have to complete memorandum of law. Again this is the sort of task you might actually do at a law firm.
Real-World ScenarioIn this scenario you work for a Georgia-based law firm as a paralegal. One day the senior partner in your law firm calls a meeting and describes to you a new case shes just taken.
According to your senior partner Galaxy Corporation wanted to lease some warehouse space from Manner Investment Group. The two entities entered into a handwritten deal that was executed on the warehouse property. The handwritten lease was one page long and contained the following information:
LEASE AGREEMENTThe parties Galaxy Corporation lessee and Manner Investment Group lessor agree to lease warehouse property located in Gwinnett County Georgia. The parties agree that the lease term shall be five years with monthly rent at $3570 for year one and a 5 percent increase over the term of the lease. The deposit for the warehouse is $5000 payable at the time this agreement is executed.
Signed/ Marshall Shields VPGalaxy CorporationSigned/ Diana Sutton Managing PartnerManner Investment Group
The handwritten date of April 29 2015 was at the bottom of the document. Galaxy tendered the initial deposit and first months rent. Later that week Manner Investment sent Galaxy a formal lease agreement that included additional costs which included the common area costs real property taxes and insurance premiums. Galaxy refused to sign the lease stating that the one-page handwritten document contained all the terms of their deal. Manner Investment wants to sue Galaxy.
Your senior partner now wants you to prepare the memorandum of law outlining the legal arguments for Manner. In addition she wants you to prepare the counterarguments for Galaxy. She really wants you to focus on performance and discharge.
Please write at least at least 4-5 paragraphs for the memorandum of law and 1 paragraph for the counterarguments.
