Drew McLellan 23 December 2008 I have a question though: why aren’t ALL contracts like this? I’m no legal expert but I’m assuming contracts are usually full of legal mumbo-jumbo because the lawyer that has written them actually knows what they’re doing. Is there a danger that an informal approach like this – whilst making the contract process easier-going for the majority of your clients – actually might leave you open to risk from the small minority of problem-clients? Good question. As we state in the article, you should always get any contract approved by your own independent legal advisors to make sure it’s appropriate for your use.
