Avoiding Boilerplate Contracts in Business

Contracts are an essential part of operating a business, regardless of industry or size. Whether you are a private piano instructor or a tech startup that has raised millions of dollars in capital, whenever you agree to exchange goods or services for something of value, you are entering into a contract – even if your agreement is verbal.

There is no shortage of legal resources on the internet, and a simple Google search for “contracts” will return hundreds of DIY options where users just need to “fill in the blanks.” These off-the-shelf contracts contain boilerplate language that may or may not comply with the laws of your state and adequately protect your interests. For this reason, it’s never a good idea to use boilerplate contracts in business (or for your personal needs, for that matter).

Instead, you should retain an experienced lawyer to help you draft contracts that adequately protect your rights, accurately describe your agreement, and are in compliance with all of the legal requirements of your state. Doing so will ensure that if a dispute with a customer, client, vendor, or other party arises, your rights will be protected and that the contract into which you entered will be enforceable.
