Contract Clause

A Contract Clause is a specific section of a Contract that addresses a specific aspect, such as Assignment.

Some examples of important clauses in a contract include Confidentiality, Ownership and Termination. 

A clause can be identified numerically, alphabetically, or by heading, depending on how the contract is structured.

It can consist of a specific paragraph or multiple paragraphs. 

Contract clauses serve several purposes, such as:

  • Structure and Navigation
  • Ease of Reuse – clauses such as boilerplates 
  • Severability – allowing businesses to separate clauses
