What's the anatomy of a
contract agreement?

While the topic of contract law can quickly get complicated with
legal jargon, the structure of a contract agreement comes down to
four essential elements:

Offer

An offer is when a party promises a specific action or nonaction in the future to another party.

Consideration

Consideration is the value exchanged by each party when entering an agreement.

Acceptance

Acceptance is the unmistakable agreement to the terms of the offer.

Mutuality

Mutuality is the expectation that the promises exchanged by each party are either upheld or rejected by all parties.

What's a contract template?

A contract agreement template is a pre-written document with the terms and conditions laid out by one party to another.
Think of a contract template like a blank form for all parties to read, understand, and complete in agreement.

Five reasons you need to be using contract templates

Whether you’re a large scale company, a non-profit, or a one-person show, having agreement samples ready to go will undoubtedly make your life easier. Below are five benefits of using contract agreement templates in your practice.

Time

Contract templates are best for situations where you’re likely to make the same agreement over-and-over again. Having a document in place means you don’t have to recreate your contract each time.
If either party requests to make some minor changes, you have a working foundation you can edit for the specific situation.

Protection

If you’re relying on handshakes, verbal agreements, emails, or instant messaging to form contracts, you’re leaving your organization vulnerable to parties to take advantage of you.
Failing to capture important terms and conditions in your dealings increases your chances of ending in a dispute, losing money, or tarnishing your reputation.
Mitigate this risk by having simple contract agreements reviewed by legal experts to give you peace of mind that you won’t be compromised.

Professionalism

Sending a well-designed contract template to prospective stakeholders screams, “this person means business, and I must take them seriously!”
This doesn’t mean you come across as overly formal, too serious, or untrusting. The purpose of the contract is to exchange value in the form of consideration. Your template is an opportunity to show other parties that you’ve thought about their interests in addition to your own.

Accountability

The often-overlooked benefit of contract agreements is the clarity and accountability it provides for all parties. Disputes are formed because trust is broken, or expectations were mismanaged.
Not only does a contract agreement limit these variables, but it also acts as a standard for performance, thus getting better results for everyone involved.

Scale

Having contract samples across your organization enables your business to scale internal and external processes.
When you have established compliant contract templates, you can leverage your team, clients, partners to give you feedback on how you can refine your documents for future dealings.
Another benefit is having all of your templates reviewed by your legal team periodically, saving you time and headache in the long run.
Lastly, having centralized contract documents in your organization is a constant reference point. Even if people join or leave your team—your templates will continue providing on-going consistency.
