Contracts are at the heart of a solid business

| Apr 16, 2015 | Civil Litigation |

Almost anyone who is managing a business or owns a business knows that contracts are one of the main components of the business. These documents offer a lot of benefits for the owner of the business, as well as the other party. In some cases, the contract sets up penalties if the contract isn’t honored.

There are several different types of contracts that companies might find useful. Franchise and partnership agreements lay out the terms the business, such as which party is responsible for which aspects of the business. Employment contracts include those for independent contractors, confidentiality agreements, and non-compete contracts. Sales contracts, such as purchase orders and warranty agreements are helpful for many businesses. Contracts for real estate leases or equipment leases are vital if the company doesn’t purchase these items outright.

In each of these cases, it is vital for both parties to honor the contract’s terms. When the contract’s terms aren’t complied with, damages might occur. If those damages aren’t rectified, it might be necessary to head to court to seek the remedies allowed by the contract or by law. However, court isn’t always the only option. In some cases, we might be able to avoid litigation for a contract dispute.
