Business Contract MattersUnfortunately, in today’s business world, a firm handshake just doesn’t suffice anymore. There are a variety of different scenarios that require a good business contract. These legal documents communicate the terms and conditions of a business agreement and set expectations for the behavior of all parties involved. The more specific and detailed the business contract, the better.
When disputes arise, as they inevitably do, business contracts can act as guidelines for resolving the matter. Not only are they helpful in mediation, but they also stand up in a court of law should the matter be litigated.
What Types of Agreements Require a Business Contract?Many situations in real estate, employment, and business formation require an official business contract. The following are some examples of when you’ll need to draft a contract:
- Employment agreements
- Real estate purchases
- Sales and leases
These are just a few examples. Essentially, anytime you participate in a formal agreement with an outside party, you need a business contract to express the terms of this agreement clearly and in writing.
Can I Draft a Business Contract Myself?While it’s certainly possible to draft a business contract on your own, it’s not advised. Not only are there certain loopholes that must be avoided, but these contracts usually require a specific type of language that includes legal terms. Rather than going it alone, you need the help of an experienced business attorney.

I am a business owner looking to expand within the commercial strip mall I have an existing lease in. After scouring the internet and having no luck with a law office that would meet our business needs in a timely manner, we received a referral from a family member and are glad we did. From the time of contact to receiving legal advice/feedback was less than 48hours. We were very impressed with the timely reply, thorough written feedback and the opportunity to schedule a consultation call to review findings and gain more clarity. The help we received from Stephen was invaluable to me and my partner as first time business owners navigating leases and other legal matters. Highly recommend their services.
