Drafting Contracts Right the First Time
The key to a good business contract is drafting it correctly on the first draft. When this is done, you can bring it to all other interested parties and impress them with a thorough and agreeable contract. The less back and forth discussions there are between parties to make revisions, the better. This is especially true if your contract involves a third-party not directly affiliated with your company.
Our Fairfax contract drafting attorneys are here to make creating a contract simple. You tell us what you want the contract to do, and we can get to work on using the right legal language to make it so. Legalese is an important part of a contract, but it should not prevent the parties who sign it from understanding its purpose. You will find that we take a careful approach to contract drafting, properly adding each clause in a way that functions correctly but does not bog the whole thing down with legal jargon.
When we draft your business contract, it should:
- Function as intended
- Be clear and concise
- Uphold your business’s best interests
- Name all interested parties
- Define payment schedules if needed
- Set deadlines for key interests or actions
- Include dispute resolution options
Reviewing Contracts for the Slightest Discrepancies
If you are not the party drafting a contract but are the one being handed the contract instead, our business lawyers can help you with a review of the contract or contracts. Using our same business law backgrounds and insight we use for contract drafting, we can complete your contract review carefully yet in a timely manner. We will let you know what the contract actually does, so you can make an informed decision about whether or not you want to sign it.
Please keep in mind that you should never sign any business contract that has not been reviewed by a contract attorney. The party that made the contract for you may have intentionally or inadvertently used language that gives them an undisclosed advantage later on, potentially exploiting and harming your business. To be safe instead of sorry, call (888) 530-4374 and let our law firm know you have a new contract that needs to be reviewed. If the other party does not want to give you time to review the contract before signing it, then it might be the contract is already one-sided.
