As a small business owner, you need to have the right contracts and agreements in place to protect your assets. Especially for a small business, one bad business agreement could lead to having to close your doors. Here are a few tips to help you make a success of your business dealings with individuals and other companies.
- Make sure you use a lawyer for drafting your agreements – Don’t try to figure it out on your own. Those DYI downloadable contracts are too generic for most agreements and don’t provide you any real protection. Plus, laws vary from state to state, so having a local attorney draft contracts is a must.
- Have a lawyer review your contracts – If you need to agree to a contract that you did not have drafted, then you will want an attorney to look it over so that you know exactly what you are agreeing to.
- Negotiate a deal that works for you – You don’t have to sign a contract as-is. You can renegotiate until you find terms that are agreeable to all parties involved. Sometimes, it may be better to avoid a deal than to sign a contract that doesn’t provide your business with what you need.
