Business is done on a handshake
Commercial contracts are the best way to put that handshake onto paper.
Contracts are an essential part of any business, but ensuring they’re legally watertight can seem overwhelming, especially if you’re just starting out. Not with Open Legal. We know exactly what’s required, and can help you get there with ease.
In order for a contract to be legally binding, it must have a legal purpose, be backed by a mutual agreement, and must be signed by competent, assenting adults. It’s important to remember that a contract can take many forms: even an email or oral agreement can count in some instances.
To make sure you’re entirely certain exactly what you and your clients are agreeing to, it’s important to get legal advice early on. That way, you can continue to conduct your business with confidence.
Every business requires contracts at some point, and for many, they’re a daily occurrence. The good news is, that once you have a few templates in place, the rest is easy. Once you’re up and running with a few standard form contracts, everything you do will be consistent, logical, and most importantly: legally sound. Plus, you won’t have to worry about deals falling through while you’re running around trying to get a contract together at the last minute.
The Open Legal team can walk you through the process, in a way that anyone can understand. We have expertise across a range of industries, meaning we’ll always have the most up-to-date and relevant advice for your needs. And we promise you don’t have to be fluent in legalese.
