Over the years I have learned that the experts are right. A written agreement listing what is to be done and how it is to be done is one of the best ways to guarantee everyone leaves the table satisfied. Too many times I have seen a promising business deal go south because the two parties to the deal didn’t have a clear understanding of what each other was agreeing to do. I think most of the time this happens because of misunderstandings in technical terms, or incorrect assumptions. I really feel most people aren’t out to ‘get’ the other guy. SO to try an minimize any misunderstandings about what I do and what you should expect of me, I have a contract that I ask my clients to read and sign before we start, so we can all be on the same page.
Please read over this contract so that if you have any questions, I can cover them for you. Also, since these are by lawyers, there might be some questions you’ll have about what this or that paragraph means. Please, feel free to call. I’m more than happy to let you know why something may be there, and what the intent is.
