Contract Drafting and Review
Contracts are at the heart of business, a good contract can help your business grow, and a bad one can lead to conflicts. A well-drafted contract sets the tone for any business relationship, and that is why it is critical that you take the time to thoroughly prepare and review a contract before you sign.

Contracts are legal documents that can either enhance your business or they can lead to a great deal of conflict. When you have a contract in front of you, there may be many provisions and terms that you are unfamiliar with. However, it is never a good idea to simply glance at the contract one time and sign at the bottom. It is critical to work with an attorney, particularly one who has experience working with all various types of contracts to explain the terms of the contract to you. When you are reviewing an attorney you should be careful that all of the following are complete:
- All terms are negotiated
- The parties have been properly identified
- All the blanks have been completed
- All business terms have been established
- There is a price in the contract
- There is an amount in the contract
- Risk is properly allocated
- Indemnification clauses are proper
- All necessary documents are incorporated
- Remedies are established
- Causes for Termination are included and explained
- Dates and deadlines are clearly defined
You may find that what you thought you were signing is actually something else, and you may not actually agree to all of the terms of the contract. Ken Gauvey routinely advises clients about the terms of their contracts and takes the time to explain all of the terms to you. He has represented various clients in the Baltimore Maryland region in a variety of contract matters.
When contracts fail to include all the details and specifics, they can be left open to broad interpretation. Having an experienced attorney draft and review all of your business contracts is one of the most prudent decisions you can make for your business.
