THINK LIKE A LAWYER; DON’T ACT LIKE ONE
BEWARE OF GOODWILL KILLERS
Too many words, too many letters, opaque language, endless general conditions, penalty clauses, and impossibly tiny print are all goodwill killers. Contracts of this sort can actually divide the parties. Indeed, experience teaches us that such dense, entangled, labyrinthine documents destroy the trust that is so crucial for collaborations. Always ask yourself whether you can avoid these killers.
