Integral Part of Business

It might sound cliche, but contracts are the engine that drives an organization. They stipulate which actions should or shouldn’t be done, and the obligations of parties that are legally bound by the contract. The main purpose of contracts is to formalize relationships, outline obligations, and indicate responsibilities for breaches for all parties. Properly managed, they maintain compliance, improve operational performance, and even help increase revenue. And, of course, they protect your organization.
