contract 150x150 Don’t Sign Anything Until You Read ItMany times business owners don’t read what they’re signing because they feel they simply don’t have the time to deal with it. True, reading through everything you sign is clearly time-consuming. Nevertheless, not reading contracts is a real “don’t.” If you don’t want to devote your own time to the task, make sure your California asset protection lawyer reviews your business contracts.

It’s so easy to overlook things that are obvious to an attorney. For example, you should never sign something as yourself – you should sign all documents in the name of the company you own. If you sign something using your name, creditors and customers filing judgments can come after you as an individual rather than coming after the company, which likely has far better protection than you do as an individual.

You should include liability protection as a clause somewhere in every contract you sign. This can be of enormous benefit if something comes up unexpectedly. Liability protection for your business and you as an individual can save you from a lot of heartache.
