Do You Need a Lawyer to Write Terms and Conditions?

Terms and conditions can cover many agreement areas and will vary depending on the industry and parties and involved in the contract. Terms and conditions are highly customizable, and it is a good idea to hire a lawyer to draft this document.

Only an attorney experiences with local laws and terms and conditions agreements can ensure that your contract is legally binding and enforceable in court.

Examples of Terms and Conditions Projects

Terms and Conditions Drafting

Many people who need a contract that includes a terms and conditions section will hire a knowledgeable lawyer to draft the contract. Typically, the lawyer will consult with the party requesting the contract to find out exactly what it must include. Terms and conditions contract costs can vary based on how many custom terms need to be included in the document.

Although terms and conditions can be customized to fit various situations and business industries, it is important to include the following provisions in a terms and conditions draft:

Without each of these vital sections, your business and intellectual property may not be properly protected by your terms and conditions.

Terms and Conditions Review

In some circumstances, a party may have an existing terms and conditions template that they want reviewed by a lawyer to ensure it is legally binding. A lawyer will ensure the contract includes all the essential provisions and terms and follows local contract laws.

An experienced lawyer will review your terms and conditions to make sure the contract lays out the rights and obligations of each party, contains adequate consideration, includes contact information of both parties, and includes the following essential elements:

  • Signature lines
  • Important dates
  • Deliverables
  • Payment terms
  • Limitations

The terms and conditions within the contract will need to include these important elements to be legally enforceable.

Terms and Conditions Disputes

With any contract, even ones that are well-written and include all essential elements, disputes can arise if there is a breach of contract. A breach occurs when one party fails to meet their obligations as described in the agreed upon contract.

If there is a dispute over a terms and conditions agreement and you believe the other party has breached the terms of the contract, it is important to consult with an attorney. Your attorney will help determine if there was a valid breach and if you are eligible for any legal relief.

An attorney will help facilitate a mediation to try and rectify the contract issue, and if that doesn’t work, they can represent you in court in a breach of contract claim.

How Do Lawyers Charge for Terms and Conditions?

Business and contracts lawyers charge for services in a variety of ways. Depending on the complexity of the project, the lawyer will typically suggest several fee options to the client.

Hourly Rates for Terms and Conditions

Hourly rates are the most common way that attorneys charge for their time. The lawyer will provide an hourly rate to be approved by the client and log time in a timesheet to be invoiced at the end of the project for time spent on the terms and conditions agreement. This is the safest way for the lawyer to charge clients because they are covered if the project takes more time than expected.

Flat Fee Rates for Terms and Conditions

Flat fee billing structures are becoming more popular for contract drafting projects. Lawyers will provide the client with a flat fee rate for the requested services.
