Why book a Contract Review?

Because your contracts matter, a lot.

Strong contracts can resolve conflicts and prevent lawsuits, but they have to be done right. Ideally, before they're signed. Contract Law is the concept of getting terms on paper, so there is no more "he said, she said".

Understand what you're signing (or signed).

A lawyer can explain your contract to you in plain english and point out areas that might leave you exposed. Get a leg-up in negotiations and ensure your interests are protected.

Avoid unnecessary risks.

The internet is full of generic contracts and templates that might not fit your business. A lawyer can determine if what you're using makes sense for you, or not.

What's covered in a Contract Review?

A good lawyer will review your contract page by page and return it with comments before your call. On the call, they'll explain their findings and answer your questions.

Frequently asked questions

Can I get part of a contract reviewed?

It is extremely difficult, sometimes impossible, to review part of a contract without the rest of the document for context. It is highly recommended that you have the entire contract reviewed so your lawyer can provide advice that is accurate and useful. We cannot guarantee the quality or even possibility of your Contract Review if you don’t get the entire document reviewed.

My contract is linked to another contract or document. Do I need to get it reviewed too?

It depends on the complexity of the second document. This is left to your lawyer's discretion and there may be the need to charge for an additional Contract Review or extra pages. Your lawyer will always clarify any additional costs before proceeding.

Will I be charged for the title page?

We do not charge for title pages, signature pages, or any other non-substantial pages. Your lawyer will always double check that the number of pages is correct, either adding or removing pages from the bill as needed.

What if 15 minutes is not enough?

If it looks like your call is going to take more than 15 minutes, your lawyer will let you know so that you can either extend the call or wrap the conversation up. If you’re having a productive discussion and decide to continue, it’s a flat rate of $39 per additional 15 minutes.

What if I need more than advice?

The majority of customers get the answers they need in a Contract Review, but some situations require more than advice. If you need something bigger like revisions to your contract or a completely new agreement drafted, your lawyer will give you an upfront fixed-price quote for the work. If you decide to proceed with the work, you don’t pay until after the job’s done.

How does the guarantee work?

We guarantee that you will get high quality legal help. Your card is not charged until after your service is done, and if you are unsatisfied with the quality of your service or your lawyer, we will refund you up to 4 pages or $100. Simply contact us at [email protected] to initiate the refund process with our customer success team.

Do I need a lawyer in my province?

For most business law questions the answer is “no”. For employment and commercial tenancy related issues, it’s best to speak to a lawyer who has experience in your province. Goodlawyer has lawyers all over Canada with diverse experiences and specializations. If your lawyer doesn’t think they can answer your question due to a provincial issue, Goodlawyer will find another Good Lawyer who can help you.
