Prevent disputes, define expectations and safeguard your interests
A written contract has several purposes. Negotiations about the contract help the parties to better define their wishes and requirements. A well drafted contract, comprehensively anticipating issues that may arise, also functions as a guide for the parties’ cooperation which in itself may prevent unnecessary disputes.
