Contract Law

Contract formations may be very tricky, and if a contract is not properly written, the results for potential liability can be tremendous.  Everyday individuals and businesses enter into various types of contracts, and usually contracts are not being properly documented in writing and people unreasonably rely on a handshake or oral agreement that provides very little to no protection most of the time.

Solid contracts are the foundation of any business transaction.  Artfully drafted, the right contract will serve to solidify your position and protect your interests.  You can rest assured that every angle has been contemplated and provided for.  The Firm's aim is not just to advise its clients respecting the legal aspects of structuring and documenting the transaction, but also how that will impact the underlying business deal points.

Operating a business often comes with challenges.  Disputes may not be inevitable no matter how reasonable you act in your dealings in the business world.

Civil litigation requires a nimble, multi-layered approach.  At certain points, that may mean an aggressive "no holds barred" tactic of bringing the matter to trial as quickly as possible, while at others, the clients may be better served by a more conciliatory approach towards settlement. Indeed, sometimes the most appropriate approach is to adopt a combination of the two, such as alternative dispute resolution as a precursor to a possible trial. The key is to tailor the approach in accord with each client's preferences and needs.
