The process of negotiating a contract, and then performing it, can itself be costly and time consuming and carry risk of damaging a relationship, especially if the contract itself is poorly constructed or misunderstood by the people negotiating or performing it. A contract, if constructed and understood well, can help create value, build relationships and trust, and manage risk.

  • Identify and understand the relevant parts of contracts encountered.
  • Spot and explain issues in the contracts and markups provided by the other party.
