At Sejpal Law Firm, PA, we know that ensuring a contract is drafted properly will often help fend off and prevent future disputes related to that agreement. While there’s no guarantee that you won’t find yourself in a contract dispute, a document that is properly drafted will certainly help deflect numerous different types of lawsuits. We have a strong conviction that if anything is worth doing, then it must be done right the first time.
There are two primary ways in which a contract is drafted. Some contracts, such as Express Contracts, are dependent upon negotiations where terms of the contract are decided. Other contracts, such as Adhesion Contracts, are often standard agreements where the person offering the contract simply states the terms and the person signing the document can either “take it” by agreeing to the terms and signing, or “leave it” by deciding not to enter into the contract and not signing.
Express contracts involve negotiating the terms involved in the agreement. The primary negotiator of these terms should normally be your business attorney. At Sejpal Law Firm, PA, we offer services related to both types of Contracts. If it is a contract that involves having a dialogue with another party and their attorneys, we will represent you throughout the process, advising you as to the effect that any and all terms may have on you and the agreement. Our primary purpose in drafting the contract is to minimize your risk to the fullest extent possible.
In drafting either type of agreement, we will verify that each aspect of the agreement conforms to the law, that it is fair, and that you are protected by the terms named within the document. You will understand each and every part of the contract, including the benefits afforded you, the amount of risk you are taking, and specific details regarding any services or products associated with the agreement.
