Tightening up your client services agreement (CSA) with key provisions is a crucial way to protect yourself and your business. As your agreement extends to include numerous sections and clauses, however, it becomes even more important to consider if and how a severability clause should be added to your CSA.

What is a Severability Clause?

A severability clause is a provision stating that the remainder of a contract shall remain effective even if one or more of the other terms in the contract are found to be unenforceable or illegal. 

This can provide vital protection because you won’t risk having your entire contract nullified if just one provision is found to be unenforceable or void by a court. Rather, the severability clause will keep the remaining parts of the valid contract intact.

Depending on the nature of your business and relationships, CSAs will require specific language to address certain aspects of the agreement to better protect you. At Sirulnik Law, we can help you understand which provisions are essential to include in your contracts and agreements and ensure your CSAs and other documentation are in line for your needs.
