Most business transactions conducted today are done through the use of contracts. A contract is a binding agreement that sets terms for the transaction. Properly drafting and negotiating contracts will allow you to clearly define and understand your business’s rights and obligations. When a dispute arises, you need an attorney who understands how to negotiate and litigate contract cases. The attorneys at Dearing & Hartzog, L.C. handle contract drafting and negotiation of contracts, as well as breach of contract cases for our clients.
We provide many contract-based services for our clients, including contract drafting. We work with you from the very beginning of the contract drafting or negotiation process to make sure the words in your contract clearly reflect the wishes of all parties and the agreements that have been reached verbally. When a dispute or breach arises, a well-written contract can reduce the need for litigation by clearly detailing the proper procedures in all foreseeable situations. In addition to helping you draft a solid contract, our attorneys help your business revise, update or modify existing contracts to reflect changing circumstances. Our attorneys work with your company to help you avoid breaching a contract and to enforce another party’s compliance with a contract when they have breached, or threatened to breach, its terms. We are committed to helping our clients’ businesses thrive and dedicated to helping you achieve the results you desire.
If one party to a contract does not live up to their side of the bargain, it is known as breach of contract and, depending on the terms of the contract, the other party may sue for damages that resulted from the breach or sue to enforce the terms of the contract. Our attorneys have experience representing companies and individuals on both sides of breach of contract cases. Whether you are the party who is alleged to have breached the agreement or the one seeking to enforce the agreement or to obtain damages from the breaching party, we can help.
If your company is in the process of drafting or negotiating a contract, or if a contract has been breached, you need legal help. Call Dearing & Hartzog, L.C. today at 314-863-2700 or contact us online.
