The Importance of Clearly Drafted Contracts
In the course of operating a business, and even in one’s personal life, we enter into many types of contracts and written agreements. Written agreements are important, especially for businesses, since reliable sources of products, parts, equipment, labor and services are essential for a successful business.
If you sign any contract, even a “standard contract” or proposal without competent legal representation, you may be positioning yourself at a distinct disadvantage. If the other party’s attorney prepared the contract, that lawyer probably drafted the contract for the sole purpose of protecting his or her client’s interests. In that situation, it is vitally important that your attorney protect your interests as well.
Similarly, if the other party or even both parties together, prepared the contract without a lawyer, it may be vague, and might not properly express the parties’ intentions at all. Also, while the parties’ self drafted agreement might appear to be fair, it may lack important legal provisions, thereby rendering the entire agreement void and unenforceable. Alternatively, even if it is a legally binding, enforceable and fair contract, it may nevertheless be silent on certain key issues, thereby inviting litigation in the event of a dispute.
Avoiding the Unfair Contract
The purpose of a contract should not be to trap one party or the other. A proposed agreement that is a trap for the unwary should not be signed. Instead, it should re-negotiate and revised or redrafted, to create a fair and workable relationship. The EID Law Firm is proud of our Contracts and Commercial Lawyer’s thorough negotiation and meticulous drafting of many types of contracts.

Once our clients have explained the substance of their oral agreement, and their expectations, we thoroughly negotiate, review and/or draft the contract, with the aim of safeguarding our client’s rights, and avoiding potential disputes. The advantage of hiring a lawyer experienced in contract negotiation and drafting cannot be overemphasized.
