A Word About “Form” Contracts
At their inception, many businesses may try to cut costs and use form contracts found on the Internet, without consulting with an attorney to make sure their interests are protected. Using Internet form contracts may lead to issues down the road because many such forms do not address issues critical to your business, and further, they may not be recognized under Maryland law. A good practice is to consult a Maryland attorney regarding your proposed contract. Tim Mummert has a wealth of experience drafting contract for a number industries.
