A contract is a legally enforceable agreement. Contracts are a crucial way of ensuring fairness in any professional relationship in which goods or services are being exchanged. It is the way in which each party involved is provided predictability with regard to their agreed upon outcomes. When creating a contract, each party should negotiate their desired terms and come to a final compromise with the other contracting party in the form of a written and signed document. Once signed, each party involved has an obligation to fulfilling all necessary portions of the contract in which they are designated to act.
In some cases where you may be unsure about entering into a legally binding contract, it is in your best interests to seek legal counsel and contract review from an attorney. They can help in the arduous process of reading page after page of oftentimes “legalspeak” and perhaps unclear language. They can uncover any hidden fees or stipulations buried in the document so that you do not find yourself in a surprising position to which you are legally bound to comply. Finally, they determine any potential risks in-between the lines of the contract so as to warn you ahead of time.
Drafting a contract requires legal advice and counsel in order to ensure all terms and conditions are appropriate and legally binding.
