Business Contracts FAQ
Business contracts have two main purposes: 1) to spell out the parties’ obligations and rights and 2) to protect the parties in case there is a breach. Accordingly, each contract should at least have a clear start date, end date or event, clear scope and fees, representations and warranties (or disclaimers), and should clearly state the parties. Additional helpful terms include confidentiality clauses, non-solicitation clauses, and rights in case of a breach.
You “can” use a template but it’s not the best approach, especially when there is a lot of risk. Every transaction is different and templates do not take that into account. In our experience, one of the biggest reasons businesses end up in court is due to not having a contract that is specific to their own situation.
Business contracts clearly spell out everyone’s rights and duties so there is no “he-said/she-said” disputes later on. Also, clearly outlining the parties representations and warranties allow for clear remedies if there is a lawsuit.
