What is Included in a Business Contract?

When writing a business contract, it is best to keep these ideas in mind:

  • Address all possible situations that may arise. Consider having contingency plans for a scenario that is not ideal and some worst-case scenarios.
  • Ensure that the language is not too ambiguous so that the terms not clearly defined.

Tips for writing a business contract:

  • Get it in writing. Oral contracts are common, however, it is best to have a business contract in writing so that there is written proof and it is clear to both parties what the specific terms are.
  • Utilize language that you and all parties can understand -- it is not necessary to use “legalese”.
  • Be very detailed when it comes to the rights and obligations of each party -- for example, use specific dates, amounts, acceptable methods of payment, etc.
  • The other party (or parties) will have access to your business practices, even trade secrets, so be sure to include a clause that stops other parties from sharing your information.
  • Include language that deals with how the contract will be terminated.
  • If you are working with parties outside of your state, be sure to consider how their state laws will affect the contract.
  • Consider including a mediation and arbitration clause -- both of these options are cheaper than litigation in court.
To ensure that your contract is enforceable and valid, reach out to our business contact attorneys in San Diego. We have decades of experience and will gladly provide the counsel needed to ensure that your business runs smoothly.

How Do I Write a Business Contract?

Business contracts set forth the terms of the relationships between employers and employees. California is an at-will business state, which means business owners should consider business contracts for highly paid and / or key employees.

Business contracts can delineate the employer/employee relationship and minimize Business Contract disputes in terms of:

  • Duration of the job
  • Salary, Bonuses, and Commissions
  • Specific Employee Responsibilities
  • Grounds for Termination
  • Non-Compete Clause
  • Ownership of Work Product
  • Protection of Trade Secrets
  • Arbitration Agreement
