It is vital for the health of your business that you understand your rights and obligations when entering into contracts. This is especially true when hiring employees, working with suppliers and vendors, and selling your products and services to customers and clients.

When you do not know or understand the issues involved in your contracts, the likelihood that you will face a problem or dispute increases significantly. Because of this, a professionally drafted contract from an experienced attorney will help you avoid conflicts which can cost you and your business a tremendous amount of stress, time, and money. The money you invest in hiring a business attorney to draft your contracts will pay impressive dividends over time. Business disputes resulting from poorly written contracts can bankrupt or ruin your business. This is true even in a booming economy.

Important Business Contract Terms

All contracts contain terms and conditions that address the specifics of your agreement. While they may change from contract to contract, many terms and conditions are common and should usually be discussed as part of the negotiation and drafting process.

Here is a sample of those key terms:

• Rights, duties, and obligations of the parties

• Payment amount and when payments are due

• Interest and penalties for late payment

• Confidentiality and nondisclosure

• Resolution of disputes (arbitration, mediation, etc.)

• Dispute venue and jurisdiction clauses

• Indemnity or hold-harmless clauses

All of these provisions should be written so that they are as favorable to your business as practicable.

Online DIY Legal Services are Bad for Your Business Contracts

As a small or medium-sized business owner, you are always cost-conscious and want to get the most value for your money. You might think that a do-it-yourself legal services company is a good idea because they are usually cost a lot less money than an attorney and let you “plug in” your information and then get a contract. Everything is ok, right?

No, it is not. Contracts that are not tailored to your specific business needs and the laws of your state may very well result in expensive and time-consuming problems down the line. They can also be legal unenforceable. For example, suppose you get involved in a dispute with a supplier or vendor and you suddenly learn your contract violates the law in your state and cannot be enforced. But now, it’s too late. You now realize that investing some additional money in a properly written, specifically tailored contract prepared by a business attorney would have avoided your loss and saved you much more than it would have cost.

Your contract lawyer can do several things better than an online service:

• Take the time to understand your specific needs and foresee potential problems and liabilities that you may not have thought about

• Evaluate employee relationships to protect your intellectual property

• Recognize certain employment liability issues that cannot be solved through contracts

• Customize contracts for your own vendors, distributors, customers, and unique business model

It’s Never Too Late to Discuss Business Contracts With a Business and Contracts Attorney

If you are like many business owners, you may be working without properly written contracts or are using generic boilerplate contracts you found online. You are understandably more focused on running your business from day to day than spending time on contracts.

It is not too late to formalize your contracts using an experienced business attorney. Lindholm Law, PLLC will review your existing agreement(s) and recommend changes and/or draft one that properly and fully protects your business.
