What is a best efforts clause?

In business contracts, clients often want their hired firms to treat them like a top priority. This generally means employing the necessary resources for a job.

Ensuring that hired firms will treat clients as top priorities, however, is legally difficult. That being said, clients can insert a best efforts clause in their business contracts to guarantee that no matter what happens the hired firm will employ the necessary resources for a project. 

While it is often difficult to bring a case to court based solely on the best efforts clause, it can still act as an extra layer of legal protection in a business contract.
