If you create your own business contracts, unless you’re experienced business lawyer, chances are you’re creating a bunch of legal risks for your company with each deal.
Because most people who don’t actively practice business don’t know how to identify all of the important issues that must be covered in a commercial agreement…and they don’t know how to write the contract’s terms and conditions in a way that’s legally binding either.
Equally important, there are some things you never put in a business contract. Not only can these items expose your company to civil liability…but they can even be a crime.
Would you perform heart surgery on yourself? Of course not.
Because the risks to your health are too great.
The same is true of being your own business lawyer. If you don’t have the knowledge and experience to do it right, the down side to getting things wrong is an unacceptable risk.
If you need help preparing or revising contracts for your company, it’s time to speak with an experienced business lawyer.
