Well-drafted business agreements are the key to avoiding time-consuming and costly legal disputes.
They provide the framework within which you and the other parties involved – such as suppliers, distributors and customers – can work together constructively, while also protecting your commercial interests.
Contracts that do not clearly set out the rights and responsibilities of the parties involved can lead to damaging disagreements. Should disputes escalate, the courts will look very closely at the terms of your commercial agreements and you could find that a contract that should have protected you will actually work against you.
