The best time to receive legal advice is before any contract is signed. Any new legal document has the potential to substantially impact your finances, time, and responsibilities if you don't conduct a proper contract review. It is important that the terms of the contract are fairly negotiated, properly drafted, and reviewed to ensure the contract meets the intentions of the parties. Today, contracts are so complex that attorneys are routinely hired in order to decipher the meaning of such agreements. Whether you’re a business that deals with contracts on a daily basis or an employee handed a confidentiality agreement, it is important that the agreements you enter into fully protect your interests and goals.
