Contract Drafting & Review
The inescapable truth is that a well-drafted contract is absolutely vital to operating a successful business. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that having an experienced business litigation attorney on your side, someone who is all-to-familiar with problems that can unfold when a contract is poorly drafted, is a major advantage for business owners and executives. Indeed, having a well-drafted contract is most important when a contract dispute arises, particularly when it comes to pursuing payment for goods sold and delivered or services rendered. For example, it is crucial to make certain that your contract contains suitable provisions for the assessment of finance charges and recovery of attorney's fees and costs in the event of a default. Similarly, having a personal guaranty incorporated into your contract when doing business with a subchapter S corporation or limited liability company (both entities often representing nothing more than a piece of paper at the Secretary of State's Office) is a must. Quite literally, it can mean the difference between getting paid and not getting paid. With a solid contract in place, you will be well-positioned to follow the maxim, "hope for the best-prepare for the worst."
