Things to Consider When Hiring a
San Diego Contract Lawyer
What Is A Service Contract?
A service contract is a broad tool used to form an agreement between someone providing services and someone accepting services. The contracts apply to a wide variety of services and businesses. So, whether you are the party providing service, or the accepting party, you should consider whether a service contract would benefit your relationship.
The contracts are extremely important to set clear terms on payment, termination of the agreement, who may own the intellectual property exchanged, how you will deal with a dispute and more.
How Service Contracts Can Save You Money
As a business owner, it’s important to try and save money wherever you can. What a lot of folks don’t know is that a properly structured service contract can be a great way to save on expenses.
Service contracts can often pay for themselves by providing for a term and requiring a certain notice for payments or cancelling. Furthermore, time and headaches spent hunting down payments mean time away from running your business or servicing other client needs.
How to Strengthen Your Business Contracts
A contract is much more than a paper with signatures on dotted lines. It establishes boundaries, protection, and nitty gritty details of your collaboration.
No two contracts are the same, but all contracts do have three shared elements:
- An offer
- A bargained-for exchange
These are just the foundation. A strong contract will ensure you aren’t taken advantage of and set boundaries. The way a contract is written determines if there are disputes next week...or next year.
Contracts to Fit Your Specific Needs
Our team gets to know your likes and dislikes, as well as frustrations. We use contracts to address your client frustrations and create better client experiences.
There may be loopholes that you’re not even aware of - but someone else may try to take advantage of them in future. This is one reason you may need an NDA, which establishes rights to the information you want to maintain and keep private.
That is why we specialize in contracts. We make sure your contract is actually protecting you. It’s time to find out if it is.
