When you have a business of any kind it means that you will need contract agreements. This is to protect you in the legal world should anything happen. Having to write up legal agreements can be scary especially if you feel like you don’t have much legal knowledge. Here at Hampton & Pigott, we offer you the best service available in business law. We are here to help you write any legal business contracts or agreement needed. Here is what you need about writing business contracts for your company:

Always make sure that you put your agreement in writing. Never do an oral agreement. When you do your written agreement, you’ll want to make sure that you keep it simple. Make your sentences short, clear and to the point. It is also nice to number your paragraph headings. That will make it easier to navigate where things are in the contract.

Make sure that when you’re writing this agreement that you are speaking directly to the person in charge, that has the authority to make such a binding agreement. You want to make sure that you aren’t going through any middleman to make this contract happen. For a small business, it might just be an owner but if it’s a bigger company, then it would mean talking with someone higher up such as a chief executive.

Within the agreement, clearly identify each of the parties clearly. This means that you need to use the legal entity’s name so that in the legal world, it is specifically spelled out who is responsible for what. This means that you include all the little details of the legal name, Inc., or LLC. Once you have the right name, spell out all the rights and obligations of each party in detail. Include also what the payment conditions and terms for termination are. The last two things that you’ll want to know is that you need to pick the state that the contract will fall under. And above all else, keep confidentiality of any business information.

Although this is a lot of information, it is possible to write your own legal business contract. If you’re afraid that you might be missing something in the contract though, we can be your legal team. This means that whatever business agreement you may need, we can help with. Hampton & Pigott is skilled and experienced in business law. We can give you an iron clad agreement! Give us a call today or fill out our online request form.
