Why Having a Lawyer For Your Contracts Helps Your Deal

Illinois contract law is an area of law that is a mix of different practice areas and has many applications. For example, Illinois contract law can connect to employment law, vendor contracts, real estate contracts, or purchase agreements.  However, there are unique Illinois principles. For example, unlike in some states, Illinois may not enforce a “no oral modification clause,” which is a clause whereby the parties agree to only allow changes to a contract to be in writing. 

Even if your written contract states that modifications to the contract must be in writing, an Illinois court may still honor the oral modifications. Another unique Illinois law is the Automatic Contract Renewal Act (“ACRA”) which requires contracts with consumers containing automatic renewal provisions in service contracts to be clear and conspicuous, and that the consumer be notified no less than 30 days nor more than 60 days before their contract automatically renews, if the initial contract is 12 months.

We need contracts because they clearly define terms and conditions, making sure everyone involved understands their roles and responsibilities. Clear contracts help business owners avoid misunderstandings and disputes. They can also keep you out of court, saving time and money. Our law firm has experience with both domestic and international contracts. At Motiva Business Law, our Chicago business contract attorneys can help with:

What Our Clients Say

Motiva Business Law was fast, efficient, and extremely responsive to all of our questions and needs. I especially appreciated that Danya took the time to explain things to us, and that she had technology that made reviewing boring legal documents easier. I will most definitely use Motiva again and highly recommend them based on my positive contract experience.
Laurie L.
I asked Danya to review a lease contract for me. Instead, she went out of her way and wrote a whole new lease agreement, which was way better than the one I had. It was very well written, addressed every detail, and clearly spelled out all the rights and obligations of the parties involved, all in a clear and concise manner. She is an amazing business lawyer. I definitely recommend her.
Samar H.
Danya was very professional in our work with her and she really does go above and beyond. I would definitely recommend her to others seeking a qualified attorney to assist with drafting a business contract.

Business Contracts in Chicago 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 remedies 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.
