In law, the term is also used in considering it as an introductory word to a recital in a formal document. A recital contains introductory words in a contract, status, proclamation or other letter. In a contract, a clause is an introductory statement that means “take it into account” or “it does.” The clause explains the reasons for the performance of the contract and, in some cases, describes its purpose.

I often look at an agreement called the “Inventions Agreement” and I think it is not inventions at all, but rather a lack of competition or reimbursement of education subsidies if the worker ever leaves his employer. Titles don`t mean anything. “Where” literally means “given the fact that,” and seems how many lawyers think it`s better to start a contract. “Whereas clauses,” even if they do not use the word “whereas,” are generally considered an introduction or preamble to a contract and not as part of the operational provisions of the contract.

Yes, the clauses are important, and the point I am trying to make in this article is this: now, to achieve this, Mario and Sheldon include this agreement.
