It may seem to the layperson that contracts are pretty straightforward: You simply lay out what you expect the other party to do and what you will do in return. Unfortunately, it’s not that easy. If it were, you likely wouldn’t need a contract attorney to help. The reality is that not taking on this small, tax-deductible expense could cost you big in the long run.
Contracts are necessary to run an orderly business
Wouldn’t it be great to live in a world where you could just do business based on a handshake and not get legal contracts involved? It may seem that way, but the truth is that contracts are the entire reason that businesses can run orderly and successfully. Without them, a company would have no legal resource if there was a contract dispute. If they worked with a vendor and that vendor didn’t perform as promised, there would be nothing they could do – even if they’d already paid for the good or service.
The good news is that we do have contracts and they can protect everyone who’s involved in them. That said, you only get the benefits of a contract if you have a contract drawn up in a way that’s legally binding and enforceable. In the event that there’s any type of breach of contract, you want to be able to look at the contract and see a clear path to resolve it. This requires a qualified business law attorney to draw up an ironclad contract that serves your purposes.
Contracts are a normal expense of any business
If you’re going to use contracts – and you’d be hard pressed not to – then you want to spell out the rights and obligations of everyone involved. In order to do this, you’ll need a qualified attorney. At Law Offices of Torrence L. Howell, we can provide contracts based on your needs. Remember that this is an expense that all businesses have and that the costs are tax deductible.
Your company will look more professional with contracts
If you simply run on trust, then you’re likely to run into potential customers who are uncomfortable with the arrangement. They may think that you’re not professional or they may worry that they’d have no recourse in the event something went wrong. Remember, contracts don’t just protect you – they protect everyone involved. If you really want to protect your clients and ensure that they know you’re the real deal, then you need a quality contract.
