We handle all aspects of contract related issues from reviewing and drafting all the way to litigation.
Contracts are entered into each and every day. Likewise, they are also breached by one party each and every day. Contract issues are all too prevalent and each of us have found ourselves in a situation where the other side is not living up to the terms of the deal. At The Law Offices of Christopher Eads, PLLC, we not only create contracts designed to protect our clients and their employees but we also represent clients that have been wronged by one party not living up to their contractual obligations.
We offer free consultations. Call 615-622-6060 or send us a request online to schedule a meeting today.
We offer assistance with drafting new contracts and negotiating contracts for terms in your favor. A few of the contract services we offer include:
When drafting contracts for your business, it is important to ensure that your rights are protected, the conditions have your company’s best interests in mind, and that they are enforceable. To ensure a contract is legally enforceable, the following can be done:
A poorly written contract can subject you or your business to unexpected costs, burdens, unnecessary disputes, and liability exposure. We will make sure your contract is drafted or negotiated to serve your needs, so you never have to worry about unforeseen consequences.
To have peace of mind on a drafted contract or before signing one, have a contract lawyer review it for fairness and flag any unfavorable conditions. An attorney can also identify vague or confusing language that can later be exploited as loopholes. They will ensure the contract can be accurately understood, conforms with applicable laws, and will achieve what you want it to.
A fundamental aspect of contracting is the negotiation process. A strategically negotiated contract can provide legal and financial protection while also reducing the risk of wasteful litigation. You may require negotiations on an employment contract, one for a real estate transaction, for a business acquisition or merger, between a business and a consumer, etc. Whatever the case, an attorney will often be able to negotiate better terms that are based on your individual goals. For example, clear financial terms, terms that specify each party’s risks and obligations, minimize your risk, and how disputes will be handled if they arise. The parties will typically go back and forth with proposed revisions for weeks or months until they reach a mutually favorable contract to sign. Once a contract has been discussed between the involved parties, negotiated, and signed, it is an enforceable contract.
Some examples of contract issues we have recently handled includes:
If you or your business have found yourself in the middle of a contract dispute, please give us a call immediately. The contract terms themselves need to be reviewed to determine what action needs to be taken on your behalf. Sometimes a simple letter is enough and in others maybe a more aggressive approach is needed if you have tried to resolve this dispute with the at-fault party prior to contacting our office. Usually, contract issues are unique and contain a choice of law issues on which state law applies.
In order to evaluate your options, we certainly recommend consulting a Mount Juliet contract attorney to give you a complete evaluation. Whether you are contemplating leaving your current employment and want to discuss the impact of a non-compete provision or you need to know what to do when a client refuses to pay for work performed, please give us a call and let us help you make the best decision for you.
