Doing business means making appointments. Lots of appointments. With partners, staff, suppliers, customers, the government, etc. Good contracts are therefore a necessary part of a healthy business economy. Whether it concerns “internal” contracts, such as shareholder agreements and employment agreements, or “external” contracts, such as takeover and cooperation agreements. (Advice on) a good contract in which clear rules of play are laid down, makes it possible for the company to focus on the development of the company.
A good contract is clear as a tightly organised march route: who participates and under what conditions, what is the destination, what input is needed to achieve the goal, who makes the decisions, what happens if things go wrong along the way, who can intervene and what sanctions can be imposed.
Organising such a march route is a profession. Our profession.
