Arbitration, forum selection, governing law – these are all standard provisions found in many contracts. Too often, however, people are surprised when they learn just how those provisions can work against them when it comes time to enforce the other provisions of the contract – the ones they really care about. Obviously, the most important aspects of your agreements to your day-to-day business are those that involve price, delivery date, or other particular details. However, enforcing those provisions often involve the other terms, those that can be either overlooked if you are signing someone else’s agreement, or terms that may have not been updated in some time within your own forms.

Arbitration provisions, for example, are extremely powerful – but that cuts both ways. For many disputes which could involve lengthy litigation, arbitration may be a much more economical method for recovering what you are owed. However, for smaller and more straight-forward cases, the significantly higher upfront costs of arbitration – namely the filing fees – can be cost-prohibitive. However, just because you might choose to forego the arbitration provision in the contract, the other party may choose to invoke it. Because arbitration provisions are routinely enforced by the courts, with very few exceptions, you could find yourself forced to arbitrate a simple dispute.

Forum selection provisions are also frequently overlooked but can have a significant effect on the costs of successfully litigating a claim. In most cases, a lawsuit can be brought in a number of different counties; however, a forum selection clause could significantly narrow your choices. That could mean the difference between filing a lawsuit in your backyard versus halfway across the state. Similarly, provisions dictating that another state’s law will govern can introduce uncertainty and added cost to any case.

The takeaway is that, while these provisions may not seem as important as the “business terms” of those contracts, every part of a contract should be reviewed consciously to determine how it may affect your business.

We're streaming an excellent #webinar this Thursday on the Top 5 Mistakes Employers Make & Avoiding Costly Personnel Issues

Recruiting top talent is critical to growing your business. It’s often difficult, however, to identify which applicants will be a good fit for your organization. Even long-term employee relationships end poorly. Are you doing everything you can to protect yourself from employment related problems and litigation?

How are you preventing employees from competing with your business? How are you preventing employees from disclosing trade secrets after their employment ends? What should you include in your employee handbook? How do you avoid turning your employee handbook into an employment contract? We will discuss the tools you need to strengthen your employer/employee relationships.

Complimentary for Clients & Guests

All too often business owners believe that by procuring a commercial general liability policy, or CGL policy, they will be protected from almost all mishaps and accidents on any projects. However, few business owners take the time to understand what exactly they are purchasing and when the CGL policy’s coverage will and will not apply. For example, what happens if you are welding on a project and the sparks ignite, causing a fire that damages substantial portions of the project? Does the CGL policy cover all of the damage? Does the CGL policy only cover damage to certain parts of the project? Will it cover consequential damages such as the loss of use of the damaged property? Does it matter whether you took every safety precaution possible to prevent the damage?
