Contracts are crucially important to the successful running of a business, forming the basis of most commercial relationships.
They are vital to bringing clarity and transparency to business arrangements as well as ensuring there is a clear route to proper redress if things go wrong.
Entering into commercial contracts, whether made verbally or in writing and whether the terms are expressed or implied, on a regular basis will inevitably lead to problems for most businesses at some point.
