Contract Termination Clause Saves the Day
Julie is a business consultant who got into a bad spot with a client. The client has gone silent, won’t respond to calls or emails and hasn’t paid the last invoice. Julie is not sure what’s wrong exactly, but admits that the relationship wasn’t a good fit for a number of reasons.
When that happens, a good contract termination provision will come to the rescue.
I drafted a letter for Julie’s client that terminated the agreement and demanded payment. I also armed her with a comprehensive termination provision to use in her future contracts which gives Julie flexibility to suspend services or terminate for various reasons.
A client’s poor communication skills can be really frustrating. Having a good escape clause in your contract can be a lifesaver.
