Do you need to draft a contract?
Setting Yourself Up for Success
Every contract involves an agreement between two or more parties. For example,
an employment contract outlines an employee's duties to the company
and the company's obligations to the employee. Obviously, you will
want to protect your best interests when drafting a contract so that you
maximize your legal protections and limit you exposure to liability. Setting
up the contract to avoid this problem, however, is not necessarily a straightforward process.
A few questions to consider while drafting a contract are:
- Who are the correct parties?
- Will the contract end at a certain time?
- What are the essential terms?
- How much time should it give the other side to accept?
- Is anything confidential or a trade secret?
- Should the contract include a non-compete clause?
- What happens if one party wants to terminate the contract?
- Do any federal or state laws impact the contract?
- How will a dispute over the contract be resolved?
While these are certainly all important aspects of drafting a business
contract, this is not an all-inclusive list. Your contract is sure to
run into unique circumstances that will require close attention. After
all, the ultimate goal is to create a binding legal agreement that is
particular to your situation and addresses your concerns before a problem arises.
