Entering into a Business Contract?

Not all contracts have to be in writing to be enforceable, but, putting the agreement in writing is helpful in ensuring that the parties are on the same page before the deal begins.  It also serves as evidence should a dispute arise, leaving less room for “he said, she said” arguments about the nature of the deal.  As Attorney Sonia Buck likes to say:  “I have never had to litigate a contract that I drafted.”  This could be because Sonia’s drafting skills are so top-notch that her contracts are crystal clear and iron clad.  Or, it could be that the process of the parties to a business contract sitting down beforehand and working together to put the agreed-upon terms in writing can go along way toward a peaceful and professional transaction.
