Contracts are at the heart of all commercial matters, large and small, and can make or break your business. Whether you are leasing a piece of office equipment, making a substantial purchase or sale, agreeing to supply goods or services to others, hiring an employee, forming a business entity, settling a dispute, or undertaking the myriad other activities needed to successfully operate your business, you need to understand the ramifications of any contract that you sign.
We help businesses by reviewing, drafting, and assisting with a wide range of contracts, such as:
- Employment agreements
- Commission agreements
- Collective bargaining agreements
- Non-compete agreements, non-solicitation agreements, non-disclosure agreements and other restrictive employment covenants
- Partnership agreements
- Operating agreements
- Independent contractor agreements
- Lease agreements
- Purchase and sale agreements
- Vendor agreements
- Construction documents
- Severance agreements
- Settlement agreements
The specific wording of a contract is critical. If you are told not to worry about contractual provisions because they are “standard” or “boilerplate,” then it is time to consult with your lawyer before proceeding further. We can help ensure that the “fine print” does not come back to haunt your business.
Please contact us if you need assistance in reviewing, drafting, administering, enforcing, or terminating a contract. We would be happy to help.
