The internet is chockablock with free templates and cheap fillable contracts. These documents generally are not tailored to your specific industry or situation. Rather, they tend to be a conglomeration of boilerplate clauses commonly used at one time or another, but they do not necessarily work best for your business. It is fundamental to have your essential contracts drafted by a business lawyer to ensure that the contractual language is up to date, devoid of loopholes, and is compatible with the way you do business. Likewise, it makes sense to memorialize your agreements with your employees with an employment agreement to ensure that there is a clear understanding of what is expected and what will be given in return. As your business grows you will need to consider nondisclosure agreements, non-solicitation agreements, liability waivers, bylaws, operating agreements, and more. Welch Law has experience in drafting contracts that cover the simplest to the most complex scenarios.
In business, contracts are the guidelines by which give and take. If you don’t understand a contract or if you sign one without reading it, you could find yourself in the unenviable situation of having to operate your business in a certain way or to offer substantial refunds for not satisfying certain goals. Your employment agreement may include clauses that detrimentally effect the practice of your profession through noncompete provisions or compensation claw backs for not satisfying certain goals. This is why it’s imperative to hire a contract attorney to review all of your agreements. At Welch Law, we take the time to go through every client’s contracts in detail and to ensure they know exactly what they are signing.
