Breathe New Life Into Your Old Boilerplate

Are your company's contracts getting a little too old and tired?

If you are thinking about tightening some of the language in your company's contract, or completely reworking an agreement, you're probably going to need some tools to help you along the way.

Drafting company contracts and transactional agreements is a general counsel's bread and butter. And, updating your company's standard boilerplate agreements can be mentally exhausting. You want your contracts to be able to stand up in a court of law and look out for your company's interest.

But, why spend hours poring over a contract - and essentially trying to reinvent the wheel - when you can peruse some agreements hammered out by top-tier lawyers for guidance?

Most attorneys realize that when drafting a contract, having a good reference point can make all the difference in the world. If you are looking for some sample contracts, look no further. FindLaw's Corporate Counsel Contracts center offers a multitude of different contracts drafted for top public companies, available for your viewing pleasure. And, of course, it's free.

There are almost 5,000 different contracts in the Corporate Counsel Contracts center. And, FindLaw has just recently updated the site with many new contracts from Fortune 500 companies.

The contracts website can be sorted by contract type, and by business industry. Users can also browse contracts by company name.

Sample contracts range from employment contracts, finance contracts, and contracts governing real estate and sales.

Even if your company isn't thinking about updating their business contracts just yet, it might be a good use of time to spend some time looking over some contracts. You never know whether or not a good idea is just around the corner.
