Why business owners need to review their contracts

Frequently, business owners engage in agreements without fully understanding the implications of their decision. Some even use standard contracts that do not address the issues of their specific situation. Once you sign a contract, you are legally bound, which means that any failure to comply with the agreement can have a serious impact on your finances and even lead to draining lawsuits or disputes. 

Regardless of the type of agreement you are entering, or whether you or the opposing party drafted it, an experienced contract review attorney will improve the agreement to your advantage. 

Before you decide to move forward with the deal, there are some concerns you must analyze:

  • Are you aware of your rights and responsibilities as part of the agreement?
  • Do you and the opposing party have the same understanding of their roles and duties?
  • Are the terms in the contract fair and beneficial for you? Are there any areas of improvement?
  • Are you aware of the risks and liabilities your organization may encounter after entering the contract?
  • Is your business protected in the event of a failure to comply with the contract?
  • Is this contract aligned with your professional goals and your specific industry?
  • Can your contract be enforced under Illinois contract law?

Contract Review FAQs

How long does it take a lawyer to review a contract?

Multiple factors impact the time it takes for a lawyer to review a contract, such as the complexity of the deal, the length of the contract, the needs of the client, or the type of transaction. 

Typically, it can take more than 5 business days for a lawyer to review a contract. However, if the contract requires any negotiation, this process can take weeks or months, depending on the flexibility of the opposing party.

What are the elements to review in a contract? Contract review checklist:

Some of the elements a lawyer analyzes in a contract review include:

Language: The attorney ensures the terms are clear and not left to misinterpretation. Also, the contract has correct grammar and spelling.

Terms of the agreement: A lawyer assesses how reasonable and realistic the expectations stated in the contract are, according to both parties’ backgrounds. The attorney also ensures the scope of work or services provided are clearly defined, as well as the payment details and performance dates.  

Termination and Renewal: An attorney observes whether the contract can automatically renew and in what terms it can occur. Also, ensures the client is aware of how can the contractual agreement end and the procedure to follow in that event.

Confidentiality: The treatment of any sensitive information that will be shared during the agreement.  

Limit of liability: The lawyer analyzes whether the risks derived from the contract are evenly allocated.  She also verifies any indemnification clauses that determine how the party will compensate the other for any loss related to the transaction.  

Restricting covenants: A contract may include clauses that restrict the actions of the parties. A lawyer will inform the client what actions are prohibited, so there are no accidental misconducts. 

Dispute resolution: With the help of a contract review lawyer, a business owner can reduce the possibility of going to court or facing expensive disputes. The attorney will ensure there are existing clauses that will define alternative procedures to solve disagreements.
