Legal Q&A

Why is it important to have a contract reviewed by lawyers in China before signing it with a Chinese company?

A Chinese lawyer can help identify any ambiguous or vague language that could be interpreted differently by Chinese courts, which can help avoid disputes down the road. Additionally, having a contract reviewed can ensure the enforceability of the contract in case of future disputes.

What are the main aspects of a contract that the service lawyer would typically review?

A China Contract Review service lawyer will review all aspects of a contract, including:

  • Clauses related to primary contractual rights and obligations, such as payment and delivery
  • Clauses related to warranties, covenants, and conditions, such as confidentiality and indemnification
  • Clauses related to dispute resolution, such as governing law and venue
  • Other important clauses, such as language, version, revision, notice, term, termination, force majeure, and assignment

How much does a "Contract Review" legal service typically cost?

The cost of a Contract Review legal service depends on the complexity of the contract. Simple reviews can cost a few hundred dollars, while complex ones can cost several thousand dollars.

 

You can get a free quote on Trustiics by selecting a lawyer and submitting a request that includes details about the contract, such as the type, number of parties, and length. You can also upload a copy of the contract. After submitting your request, the lawyer will provide a fee quote for the review.

What are the important but often overlooked clauses that should be reviewed by a lawyer in China before signing?

Certain clauses in contracts are often overlooked but can have significant financial and legal consequences. For example, it’s important for a lawyer to review the following clauses before signing:

  • Clauses related to the term and early termination of the contract
  • Clauses related to amendments and revisions to the contract 
  • Clauses related to the calculation of penalties
