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.

Hourly Rates for Terms and Conditions
