A legal contract is meant to accomplish many goals, but not all contracts are drawn up correctly. A well drafted contract is enforceable, legally compliant, and customized to the needs of the client. Let's take a look at the approach to contract drafting that we take at Stout Law, PLLC. We believe that it is the details of this approach that set us apart.
Creativity vs Enforceability
We see a great deal of creativity in the contract drafting context, but the legal reality is than many provisions are not enforceable as drafted. These unenforceable provisions may even jeopardize the integrity of the contract as a whole.
A well drafted contract is also legally compliant. We frequently review contracts that increase the liability for one or both of the parties because they incorporate illegal provisions and/or lack necessary provisions. Such noncompliance can result in substantial monetary awards should a dispute arise between the parties.
Templates vs Customization
A well drafted contract is as customized as possible. Contrary to popular belief, not every client has the same needs related to their contract drafting. Consequently, contract templates frequently miss provisions that are key to accomplishing one's goals -- both now and in the future.
Trust Stout Law with Your Contract Needs
Stout Law provides exceptional contracts for our clients because we thoroughly review the areas of law that are applicable to each contract we draft. This helps ensure enforceability and legal compliance.
Stout Law also provides exeptional contracts for our clients because we have been in our client's shoes in most of the areas in which we practice. We can relate directly with the real world experience of business owners, real estate property owners and investors, joint venturers, contractors, landlords, employers, among many others. This real world experience helps us foresee future challenges and it helps us create future opportunities.
At Stout Law, we also believe that contract drafting is best accomplished as a team approach. This means that we keep our clients involved in the process to ensure that we fully understand our client's needs and that our clients completely understand the resulting documents.
The combination of the aforementioned contract drafting strategies provides our clients with the optimally enforceable, compliant, and customized contracts that protect their best interests.
