Contracts are an essential part of doing business in America. Business gets done by two or more entities making agreements, solidified in contract form. Though contracts may be oral, it is good practice and sometimes required that contracts be made in writing. If you are a business owner, much of your business' success will depend on how well you handle the contractual component. With the help of an experienced attorney, you can protect your interests for long-term success.
At the Law Office of Christopher T. Wilcox, we represent businesses of all sizes with negotiation, drafting and review of all types of contracts.
We regularly handle contracts such as:
New businesses: At the onset of a new business, we can help you draft operating agreements, operating documents, partnership agreements, shareholder agreements, and other business formation contracts.
Employment: We provide counsel for employers regarding contracts, best practices, employee policies and other related matters.
Vendor: We can help protect your interests when working with subcontractors and other vendors for goods or services.
Purchase, sale and service: Our attorneys represent businesses in all types of contracts involving purchases, sales and services offered.
Real estate: Our lawyers can protect your interests in the purchase, sale, rental or lease of property used for your business. Our in-house real estate attorneys facilitate this process, resulting in greater efficiency and a shorter wait time for you to begin business operations.
We also regularly handle contract breaches.
If a party believes that another party has violated the terms of a contract, he or she can seek to have the contract enforced by taking legal action. There are many types of breaches, including material breaches, minor breaches, anticipatory breaches, and fundamental breaches. In such cases, representation from an experienced business law attorney is usually required. The attorneys at the Law Office of Christopher T. Wilcox will review your situation and attempt to resolve the dispute through negotiation, mediation or arbitration.
