Protect Your Business Interests: The Importance of Supplier Contracts

Very few businesses cover the entire chain from production to service. For nearly all of us running a business, we require services or products from others to fulfill our customer and/or employee needs, such as the space we lease and our banking relationships. However, unlike an employee who joins your team because they are attracted to your company values (and likely the pay), contractors and suppliers are motivated by the success of their own business. In large part, this is a good thing (it’s called capitalism). However, you have to remember this basic principle: protect your own interests while relying on people who have their own interests. The first and foremost way to ensure that each party’s interests are protected is through a business contract. Like with customers, the lack of a contract or having a contract that doesn’t protect your interests is severely detrimental. Clauses like making sure the other party has proper insurance if things go poorly, specifying when payment is due, and outlining what remedies are available are critical to nail down.

Negotiating these contracts doesn’t have to be intimidating or expensive. Counxel On-Call provides quick contract reviews, legal compliance support, litigation defense, and expert legal advice to guide you through the complexities of contract negotiations, allowing you to focus on other pressing business matters.
