CONTRACTS PROTECT YOUR BUSINESS
Contracts are a critical aspect in any business, and the careful drafting and review of these documents can assist business owners in avoiding costly misunderstandings and disputes in the future. A contract should thoroughly set out all terms for expectations of the parties as well as determine what happens if a dispute should arise. Preventing future problems and ensuring that if problems do arise that you or your business is protected in the contract is vital.
If you have a breach of contract or litigation matter, please see the note at the bottom of this page.
The contracts should achieve the following:
- Outline agreements clearly and without confusing wording or terms.
- List the remedies that the client has if the contracted firm or individual fails to uphold the terms of the contract

Illinois is a great place to do business and succeed. Perhaps one of the most critical elements to the facilitation of such success is the contract. No matter your industry, field of specialization or the size of your company, contracts serve as an important way in which to protect your best interests during the course of business.
Though contractual agreements vary widely in their nature and purpose, their basic goal is the provision of money, goods, actions, services, or promised refrain from action by one party to another. These items of value are called “consideration” in legal terms, and without them, a contract would not exist.
When a contract has been properly constructed and implemented, it carries the full weight of the law behind it, and when a breach of such an agreement takes place, remedies can be put into place to protect your interests.
Most contract drafting and review is done at a rate of $200/hour. In most cases a small retainer is required to begin work.
