Contract Review and Negotiation

Contracts stand at the center of most business relationships and transactions. A good contract makes clear the rights and obligations of all parties, and spells out expectations in an understandable and realistic way. A less good contract may be unclear, imprecise, ambiguous, or impractical, fail to cover important points, or leave the parties with different and incompatible understandings of what is supposed to happen. Unfortunately, far too many contracts have one or more of these defects, and quite a few have all of them.
