Contracts mean different things to different people. Although the ultimate place for a contract is a court of law, it is extremely uncommon for them to get that far, especially for contracts between companies in different countries.
When entering into a legal agreement, it is important to consider whether the contractual terms you are negotiating are designed to “win” in court when there is a problem or to ensure that both parties understand their obligations and the mutual objectives of the parties before starting business together.
Over the years, I’ve seen more problems caused by contracts than solved by them. In order to avoid that sort of situation, it is important to ensure that the terms of the contract are both clear and accurately reflect how you intend the relationship with the other party to proceed.
After listening to what you hope to achieve with the contract, we review the contractual terms and their wording to ensure that there are no misunderstandings, the contract is both fair to all parties and realistic, and it is designed to lead to mutual profit for all involved. These are the basic conditions for a long-term business arrangement.
