What is a contract lawyer?

A contract lawyer primarily focuses on drawing up and revising both legal documents and contracts. Contracts are a priority in both business and personal arrangements, and it’s essential that they’re done right to be legally binding.

When you submit a quote with Lawpath, we’ll source you quotes from expert contract lawyers. All of our lawyers work on a fixed-price basis, meaning you always know how much drafting and reviewing a contract is going to cost.


 

Why do I need a contract lawyer?

Legal contracts can be tricky. It’s imperative then that your contract is drafted specific to your needs, ensuring that you are limiting your liability and protecting your interests. By bulletproofing your documents with a contract lawyer you’ll ensure that any gaps have been identified and amended, and most importantly that your contract is both legally binding and admissible in court.

Lawyers specialising in contract law can also assist with contract disputes, including how to get out of (or break) a contract.


 

How much will a contract lawyer charge?

Contract lawyers will typically charge by the hour, meaning your bill grows with every minute used to draft, review and give advice on your document.

We only work with lawyers that provide contract assistance on a fixed-price basis, ensuring pricing remains transparent and affordable. We also provide our customers with quotes from our lawyer network, ensuring you can choose a contract lawyer that works for you at a price you can afford. This helps you and your business avoid any unwelcome surprises.


 

What’s the end result?

Your chosen contract lawyer will leave you with a legally binding contract, tailored to your needs and valid in any local court. You should ensure that before the lawyers completes their work on your contract that you are completely comfortable with the terms and understand what you’re agreeing to. Any issues or concerns about the contract should be brought up with your lawyer for them to clarify and amend.

Going above and beyond

Paul and the team at mclp are simply amazing.....Always available and answer your calls even after hours which is hugely important when running a start-up where pivots are a regular occurrence. It's important for us as a tech start up to be able to get hold of our lawyers for general advice and specific legal requirements in a very past paced and agile start up environment. When and if our requirements change i know i can rely on paul and damien, who are always willing to assist, guide and advise making my life easier, stress-free and well informed so that i can focus on making the right business decisions while also building the business and doing what i’m best at. Thanks again and i look forward to a long relationship with mclp.
