Business owners will enter into contracts with vendors or other providers for goods and services on a regular basis. Your phone service, copy machine, website builder, marketing consultant, suppliers, distributor or other service company.
Most business owners do not have the time nor inclination to read through the fine print of a contract and assume what they agreed to orally with the salesperson is what the contract says.
THIS CAN BECOME A BIG MISTAKE.
Next thing you know you have a problem and the salesperson who promised you this was not going to happen is no longer with the company.
There’s an easy way to avoid this situation. Have the document reviewed by an experienced business attorney. My goal as an attorney is to minimize your disputes and save you from legal problems.
I review the contracts BEFORE THEY ARE SIGNED AND REVIEW THE RELEVANT TERMS WITH YOU so you know what you are getting into.
True story follows:
Years ago, when I was young, my Father owned a restaurant and signed an agreement with the ice machine provider. Little did he realize that he was signing not only on behalf of the company, but was providing a personal guarantee. When his partner absconded with the company funds, my Father was left to personally pay on the contract. Why? Because he did not have an attorney read the contract before he signed it.
YOU, AS A BUSINESS OWNER, ARE ULTIMATELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY AGREEMENT YOU SIGN.
So please, please, don’t ever let me tell you “I told you so.” Let’s not give these agreements a chance to become real problems.
