Business owners typically take it for granted that when they are presented with a contract or agreement from a product or service provider, lender, landlord or other party, the contract or agreement is neutral and accurately captures their verbal understanding with a salesman or other person. This is rarely the case. Although the basic economic terms of the arrangement may be accurately portrayed, other critical terms often favor the party presenting you with the contract or agreement.
Whether it’s drafting a standard document to be used in your business, negotiating a lease with your landlord, negotiating the terms of financing with a lender or the terms of an agreement with a product or service provider, it is in your best interests to have a competent lawyer assist you throughout the process. Your failure to have a competent lawyer in your corner often proves to have costly ramifications, far more costly than they would have been if you consulted an attorney at the outset.
Quite simply, lawyers are trained to review contracts and to point out issues that may prove to be harmful to their clients.
