When considering entering into any contract, especially one related to your business, it's important to have an attorney review the contract before signing. This can include leases, contracts with vendors, employment contracts, and non-compete agreements, among others.
The law surrounding contracts is very strict. All the terms of the contract must be included within the text of the contract. Any obligations not included in the contract may not be enforceable even if you have an oral agreement outside of the contract. Additionally, a well-worded contract can make it easier for you to enforce the terms if the other party doesn't do what they are supposed to do. The cost of having the contract reviewed by an attorney before signing to ensure your protection is minimal compared to the costs incurred trying to fix a problem in the future.
