Contract templates tend to be a hit and many can be "downloaded" from the internet because they look "ready to use" and have the potential to save time and money. However, as specialists in contract and obligation law, we know that many of these contracts don't say much, and what is not in the contract often becomes a major problem.
It's also important to remember that almost every contract is an original, as it takes into account not only the specifics of the particular project or transaction, but also the specifics of the negotiation, as it is almost never possible to negotiate everything in your favour. So why start with a template that may include a negotiating compromise that you may have yet to see in your deal? Why voluntarily find yourself in the position that the first draft of the agreement actually already contains such "hidden" compromises and you haven´t had a chance to "trade" them for something important to you in the negotiations? When a real conflict arises, litigation often costs more than a thoughtfully drafted contract at the beginning of the relationship. A well-constructed and balanced contract is thus the basis for eliminating the risk of future disputes between the parties. The same applies to commercial terms.
