The Best Business Contract
August 29, 2022
The Best Business Contract
Have you ever tried finding a contract you can use for your business? Maybe a partnership contract, employment contract, customer terms and conditions contract, or purchase agreement contract?
If you have, you might have typed “business contracts” into Google and received a mix of 2 options.
Option 1: use an online contract tool like Rocket Lawyer, Legal Zoom, or Legal Contracts.
Option 2: find a typical law firm that drafts business contracts.
Unfortunately, there are significant problems with both of these options that you should avoid. Getting the best business contracts for your business comes down to 3 essential things.
Step 1: The contract is simple to read.
Step 2: The contract captures your unique business needs.
Step 3: The contract protects your interests.
The Problem With Online Contracts
Using online business contracts initially seems like an excellent option for people. Because these contracts are written for the everyday consumer, they often pass the test on step 1 for being simple to read. However, these online contracts fail to meet steps 2 and 3.
The primary reason for this is that online contract companies cannot provide legal advice. As a result, they cannot fully understand your unique business needs and cannot create specific provisions that fully protect your business interests.
This failure on their part is no secret. These online giants even say it at the bottom of their websites:
Rocket Lawyer: Rocket Lawyer is not a “lawyer referral service” or a law firm, does not provide legal advice or representation (except in certain jurisdictions), and is not intended as a substitute for an attorney or law firm.
– Legal Zoom: We are not a law firm or a substitute for an attorney or law firm. We cannot provide any kind of advice, explanation, opinion, or recommendation about possible legal rights, remedies, defenses, options, selection of forms, or strategies.
– Legal Contracts: We supply information and software and cannot provide legal advice, opinions, or recommendations. We are not a law firm or a substitute for an attorney.
So if these online legal contracts cannot capture your unique business needs and they cannot protect your interests, then does that give you peace of mind when you use those contracts?
The Problem With Typical Law Firms
Most people feel that if they go to a typical law firm, they are getting the Best Business Contract. However, typical law firms fail in Step 1. In addition, they often fail to address steps 2 or 3. This failure happens because typical law firms speak a different language than their client.
They speak legalese. Examples of legalese in contracts are phrases like this:
Whereas, the parties heretofore mentioned in Section 6.2 of attached Agreement hereby agree, affirm, and concur that the terms (as described in this agreement and any other agreement specifically referenced herein or any other document which the Vendor later identifies within a reasonable time frame to apply to this Agreement) is binding upon all parties and inures to the benefit of any and all predecessors, affiliates, subsidiaries, assignees, beneficiaries, except to the extent otherwise agreed by the parties, and that the consideration and exchange of the promises effectuated upon the signature of all authorized personnel (as deemed appropriate by the parties heretofore mention in Section 6.2 of the attached Agreement) are sufficient to consummate this transaction.
Because a client generally does not fully understand what a contract with a phrase like the one above says, it prevents Step 1 of the Best Contract from being achieved and Step Two and Step Three of the Best Business Contract.
