Drafting favorable, enforceable contracts for Houston businesses
Almost every business will have the need for some type of contract at one time or another while many businesses engage in numerous contracts on a regular basis. Every contract that your business enters into should be carefully drafted to make sure all of your business rights are protected and that the contract benefits your business and does not create any unnecessary burdens, costs, or liability.
Many business owners, however, may be unfamiliar with contract law principles and may therefore look to the internet for samples of contracts. However, such sample contracts with boilerplate terms rarely cover all of the bases that may be necessary to fully protect your rights in the contract. Instead, you should always seek the assistance of a business contract attorney to carefully draft a contract that is specifically tailored to your needs and best interests. Andrew Weisblatt is an experienced business lawyer practicing in Houston who has successfully helped many clients draft and negotiate a variety of contracts.
Important contract terms
Every contract has terms and conditions that outline the specific agreement at hand. Though terms and conditions may vary from contract to contract, there are many common terms and conditions that should generally be included in the drafting process. These include as follows:
- Duties and obligations of each party
- Rights to which each party is entitled
- Payments and payment schedules, including late fees and interest
- Limitations on liability
- Indemnity clauses
- Dispute resolution guidelines
- Confidentiality agreements
Every contract provision should be drafted in a way that is as favorable to your business as possible and you should ensure that no terms or conditions are unfair to your business.
