Contracts are right at the heart of any business – I like to get to know the businesses I work with so that I can really ensure that their contracts and agreements work for them and ultimately support their goals. My experience spans a wide range of businesses, from SMEs to major companies; irrespective of the size of the business, each contract or agreement can be crucial to a business’ success.
I am meticulous in my approach and always focus on my client’s needs and aims to ensure that their intentions are accurately documented and their interests protected
Outside work, I am an avid West Brom fan, but also enjoy cricket, and I volunteer at a local sports club to help young athletes.
Make sure the contract ties in with your arrangements and is realistic in terms of what both parties can achieve – make sure you know what you’re signing up to!
Ensure that both parties have set out their intentions and where possible, headline terms are agreed; this will save time and expense.
Don’t cut corners, ensure that arrangements and conversations are accurately documented and legally binding.
Does a contract need to be in writing?
In respect of general commercial contracts, the short answer is no, as long as the following elements exist: offer, acceptance, consideration, an intention to create legal intentions and certainty. Then there is a binding agreement, irrespective of whether there is a written agreement, though a written agreement is preferable.
