Contracts are one of the foundations of doing business, but they can be complex and hard to understand. Big companies have a team of lawyers to draft one-sided contracts and take advantage of business owners who try to negotiate on their own. Whether you are creating a new contract form, reviewing a contract, or negotiating a relationship, having the help of an experienced contract attorney can help reduce time and expense, manage risk, avoid unnecessary disputes, limit liability, and avoid unintended legal consequences. Many clients don’t believe big company master service agreements are subject to negotiation, but they are.
At FME, we know the implications a bad contract can have on your business. Signing a contract before an attorney reviews it could mean unknowingly agreeing to unfair terms or unfavourable conditions. Negotiating contracts on your own can be difficult and result in a less beneficial agreement. To best protect your business, contracts must be well-written to ensure enforceability and not so one sided as to shift all exposure and liability to you. Well experienced contract attorneys at FME can handle all of your contract concerns to assist you in obtaining the best outcome for your business. If you can describe it, we can write it.
