Contracts are seen by some as a necessary evil and by others as a useful tool. Over and above having to negotiate and enter into contracts, companies need to respond – often at short notice – to the risks that regularly arise in their relations with partners.
In some cases, a standard solution is chosen at the time of contract formation. This is far from always the best solution. Ideally, a contract should always reflect the company's objectives, business processes and risk profile.
Contracts establish rights and obligations and make it possible to assess and mitigate risks. A contract thus makes it possible for a company to take calculated, commercial risks.
A good contract is also a useful management tool from a legal and financial perspective and for information, planning and strategic purposes, provided that it is firmly rooted in the organisation. Finally, the carefully considered formation of contracts is also a chance for the parties to align their expectations.
