A contract is nothing more than an agreement. Contracts can be verbal or written. A contract should set forth the rights and responsibilities of the parties to the contract. Simply put, who is going to do what. Setting forth, in writing, your agreements is a vital exercise for the health of your business and your relationships. By creating a written contract you are able to manage the expectations of the parties to the contract. Most importantly, a well written contract will help you to avoid disputes in the future.
