contract review intake form is a questionnaire that clients complete before having their business contracts reviewed by a lawyer. The document sets the stage for the lawyer’s work by identifying the type of contract, its page length, and the specific portions of the agreement the client is unsure about or would like assistance with. It might also mention clauses or language that need to be added.

Lawyers can use the information in the intake form to decide whether the client is fit for their services and better prepare themselves for the initial consultation.

Client Information

Once a client reaches out to have a contract reviewed, the lawyer or their legal team should use an intake form to gather the following information:

  • Company Details – The name, address, and type of the client’s company.
  • Contact Information – The phone number, fax, and e-mail address of someone at the company that the lawyer can contact.
  • Contract Specifics – The document type (e.g., service contract, employment agreement), the number of pages, and the potential contract value.
  • Specific Concerns – The areas of the contract that the client wants the lawyer to focus on.
  • Contract Additions – The legal conditions and other components that the client would like to add to their agreement.
  • Review Deadline – The date the client wants the contract review to be completed, including an explanation of any timeframe issues.

Why It’s Used

An intake form is a valuable tool for the contract review process. Not only does it streamline communication with clients, but it also improves a law firm’s overall quality of service. By giving the lawyer an upfront look at the client’s expectations and the extent of the work to be done, they can estimate the time needed to complete the review, identify potential contract issues, and immediately address the client’s concerns.
