Unraveling the Mystery of The Business Contract and Marital Bliss

What does a contract have in common with courtship and marriage?

While a contract may appear to be a complicated document full of suspect language, the entire procedure involved in the planning, negotiating, drafting and execution of a contract is extremely similar to the age-old tradition of "tying the knot."

Getting into and out of a contract is not so different from the build-up and break-up of life's most personal relationship. You do not need a lawyer to tell you when to befriend someone, go on a date or decide to marry. A client that is familiar with the structure and purposes of a contract and its clauses - and that can relate personal experiences to the purpose behind contract clauses - better understands the role of counsel during negotiations, more effectively communicates what it wants from counsel, more easily distinguishes the risks between or among alternatives and more confidently makes fully-informed decisions and express them to counsel. In the end, the client will find itself making efficient and cost effective use of counsel without sacrificing protection.
