Our Elmhurst contract lawyers are here to protect your rights and ensure that you avoid a breach of contract litigation by reviewing your contracts. While having your contract reviewed by an attorney may seem expensive and overwhelming, it is actually a simple and cost-effective process. Having your contact reviewed will save you from having a poorly drafted contract that could cost you more money in the long run.
Step 1 – Opinion Letter: When a client brings a contract to us for review, the first step is for us to prepare an opinion letter for the client.
Step 2 – Discussion with the Client: Once the opinion letter has been delivered to the client (usually by e-mail), we will have a brief phone discussion with the client to go over the important points in the letter and answer any questions the client may have.
Step 3 – Communicating Proposed Changes to the Other Party: Once the client understands the opinion letter, the client will make a decision as to which of the recommended changes to the contract the client would like to pursue.
Step 4 – Review of the Revised Contract: If the other party is responsible for revising the contract, the last step is for us to review the revisions that we proposed to ensure that the final contract reads correctly.
