Pre-empt and avoid any issues by getting your contracts reviewed early by a specialised contracts lawyer

Contracts form the basis for your relationship with the other partie(s).  It always pays dividends to have it reviewed, tailored and negotiated by a senior contracts lawyer who is both commercially astute and experienced from a legal perspective.  This will significantly enhance your interests and position both during the transaction or process.  In addition, it will pay for itself if, as is so often the case, things do not go exactly as planned.  

Don’t rely on templates purchased online

Templates are called templates for a reason and they have not been tailored for your needs.  Don’t simply rely on basic templates bought online.  Invest in your transaction and future.  Ensure you interests are protected.  Contact an experienced contracts lawyer in Sydney for a fixed fee quote.

Conduct regular reviews of your contracts so they remain optimised

Regularly reviewing your contracts is equally important.  This is to ensure that they are current and tailored to your circumstances as well as any changes in the law.
 

Seek early advice from a contracts lawyer when in dispute as this can determine the outcome

It is important that you seek independent legal advice before deciding to take or not take any action which may be adverse to the other parties’ interests.  You need to ensure compliance with the contract and the general law.  Whether or not a contract is void, or whether or not you can exit a contract, terminate it, treat it as having never existed, or recover damages for breach are all questions of law.  Getting advice from a contracts lawyer early ensures you don’t make a costly, irreversible, mistake.
