Shakespeare reminds us that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. However, this metaphor only goes so far. A contract signed in any other name is not necessarily enforceable in the same way.
Some business owners, for example, have made the mistake of signing their personal name to a contract without making any indication in the document that they are signing on behalf of their company. If a problem arises, the other party to the contract then may attempt to hold the individual owner liable on the contract instead of or in addition to the business. Much litigation can be spared if people are careful in the way they sign their contracts.
