The Importance of a Contract that Clearly Defines Your Rights and Obligations
A contract is a legally enforceable agreement between two parties, whether those parties are business entities or consumers. Contracts are made up of enforceable terms that provide security for a wide range of agreements, including partnerships, employment, sales and leases, transactions, non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements. Obtaining legal guidance for creating and negotiating contracts allows you to clearly define and understand your rights and obligations in the agreement. All too often disputes arise either from the absence of a contract or one that is susceptible to conflicting interpretations. If a dispute arises, an attorney can represent your best interests during arbitration or litigation. I handle contract drafting, negotiation and enforcement for clients throughout the State of California and elsewhere so that their rights under the contract terms are upheld.
Developing fair and enforceable contracts
I work to make sure the terms of your contract clearly reflect the wishes of all parties involved and the agreements that have been reached. A well-written contract can reduce the need for future litigation by clearly detailing the proper procedures in all foreseeable situations. At the Law Office of Stanley Imerman, I handle:
- Contract drafting — I draft contracts with an eye toward protecting your best interests in light of contingencies. I will take the time to listen to your goals and advise you on the various considerations and precautions that apply to your specific circumstances.
- Contract review — You should not sign a contract written by another person without first having an informed legal professional look over the terms and point out changes that better protect your interests. I will provide meticulous contract review services.
- Contract modification — If you and the other party agree to make changes to an existing contract, I can draw up amendments to reflect the new terms or, if advisable, create a new contract.
I am dedicated to helping you achieve the results you desire by ensuring the terms of the agreement protect your interests. If your company is in the process of drafting, negotiating or revising a contract, or if a contract has been breached, it is wise to seek legal help promptly.
