Contracts form the backbone of most business transactions. They are also essential to the smooth day-to-day functioning of business operations.
A thorough, well-drafted contract will not only set out rights and responsibilities; it will also address contingencies and potential disputes. A carefully thought-out contract can go a long way toward limiting your business’s exposure to liability. It can lay the foundation for your success in both the short term and long term.
