What to include in your letter of intent.
Letters of intent give all parties a clear roadmap for what’s to come, should each party act in good faith or stay true to their word. They introduce goals, expectations, and time frames for potential transactions, and that helps all involved understand the structure of the potential business deal. This can help parties identify potential deal breakers or binding items that will become important in the future.

Turn your intentions into actions with an e-signature.
If a letter of intent is binding or if you want to verify that a recipient has reviewed it, you’ll want to include an option for them to return it with a signature. Sometimes preliminary negotiations can include disclaimers or legal documents such as a nondisclosure agreement. E-signatures can make these initial correspondences move faster.
