We hear business owners explain they didn’t have an attorney review contracts entered into with other companies because “it is just the agreement the other company uses”. Our attorneys understand that our clients want to enter into agreements without review for ease.
The businesses then enlist the support of our lawyers to review agreements, more often than not, end up with an agreement that is far more favorable to the client-business without push back from the other party.
While the people your business works with usually have the best intentions, their company’s attorneys likely drafted their go-to agreements to favor their client to your detriment. DZ Law attorneys have reviewed terms allowing companies to enter into agreements creating financial liabilities, without notice, for our client-business. Our lawyers reviewed service agreements authorizing the nonclient business to use any produced by the client-business.
Sometimes, the terms of a contract are not enforceable, but those contract terms should still be addressed. Our attorneys often hear clients explain the merits of their case and even why the law is on the side of the business. While facts and law may be on the side of the business, litigation is likely expensive.
It is cheaper for a business to enter into a contract reviewed prior to executing it while assuring it is an equitable and enforceable agreement than to litigate the terms of the agreement after the parties are in conflict.
