3 Things You Need To Know Before You Hire A Lawyer To Review A Contract

3 Things You Need To Know Before You Hire A Lawyer To Review A ContractWhen you want an attorney to review a contract, there are three important things you should know.

1. All law students study contracts. But most attorneys are not experts in drafting, negotiating, or reviewing business agreements.

For example, a criminal defense attorney deals with plea agreements. Yet this focus on a criminal plea does not mean the attorney could review your business contract.

2. The amount of time to review an agreement will vary. Key factors include…

A. the length of the contract,

B. the expertise of the person who drafted it, and

C. the subject matter.

3. It often saves money to have a business lawyer prepare an agreement for you. Reviewing and fixing another’s agreement can take time.

Do you need an agreement reviewed? Or a new contract prepared? Contact Business Lawyer Mike Young today.
