A: The business litigation attorneys here could offer the best analysis, but you await a response for two weeks. The short answer is that a contract signed by only one person could be enforceable. Some contracts could be in the form of a one-sided purchase agreement. If there's a significant issue or sum at stake, you could reach out to civil litigation attorneys for a more detailed analysis that takes into consideration price, statute of frauds issues, N.Y. General Obligations Law, the format of the contract (if two signatures clearly required), communications between the parties, and other factors. Good luck
