Common Contract Mistakes to Avoid and Legal Technology Trends to Harness

As a temporary worker, freelancer or a contractor the grass is not always greener on the other side. Since you do have a great deal of freedom and flexibility in your work this does make contract negotiations simpler. It is paramount to cover every single detail without leaving anything out.

Contracts are the backbone to practically almost any business exchange that you can fall back on when a conflict or disagreement arises around a project, they are the best way to ensure business proceeds as planned. A blog post written by Rogers and Moss Attorneys at Law emphasizes the need to have contractual agreements drafted by an attorney who will include clauses that ambiguous pre-made legal forms tend to leave out; and to verify that every detail has been carefully scrutinized specific to one’s state.

Elsewhere, legal tech will undergo significant shifts in 2016. Specifically, contract software will see major growth fueling the usage of cloud computing by lawyers to run their law firms, mentioned by Capterra.
