Contract Mistakes: "It Looks Legitimate"

Contract Review

Yes, you should always have your attorney review a contract to purchase a business or real estate or a lease before you sign the document. Most legal problems that come to me are the result of a poorly drafted or one-sided document. Legitimacy is only one concern; just because “an attorney” drafted a document does not mean that it serves your interests, unless the drafting attorney was your attorney. Your attorney will look out for your interests.

You may think you are saving money by not having your attorney review a contract; however, in the long run such a decision may cost you far more money if there is a misunderstanding or dispute. Learn from the mistakes of others. I can tell you stories . . .!
