Contracts are necessary to the stability and success of just about any business, whether they are with certain employees, partners, vendors, customers or clients. In order to make sure they function as anticipated, it is important that they be valid, well-crafted and enforceable. Otherwise, it may not be binding or, even worse, operate to the detriment of your company contrary to how it was intended.
