Contracts are the backbone of business, and clear, concise documents not only protect the parties to an agreement, they help facilitate new business. Whether as the product / service provider, or in dealing with your vendors, every time you interact with another individual or business, you need to have agreements in place that protect your interests and reduce the likelihood of dispute. Battleson Law is well-versed in corporate and commercial contracts: drafting, negotiation, and enforcement. You can rely on our expertise to craft your customized documents (as well as negotiate those presented to you), allowing you to conduct business with peace of mind.
Most disputes arise out of ambiguities and differing (self-interested) interpretations of legal agreements, though sometimes they occur due to outright bad actors. Multiple parties often take different meanings from the same document, and this can lead to confusion, miscommunication, and lost business. If you wish to avoid these kinds of situations, and potential lawsuits that stem from them, Battleson Law can help. Mark Battleson has two decades of experience in both the legal and business world, and will create contracts with provisions that are “business friendly”, but also offer protection. It’s imperative that you use clear, concise wording, and legally-enforceable clauses in your documents. Whether prepared by or presented to you, a contract is executed for the specific purpose to memorialize your agreement with your employees, vendors, investors, or other interested parties, and it should be negotiated so there is no question as to the responsibilities of each party.
Businesses that “DIY” their agreements regularly end up exposing themselves to litigation due to either honest disagreements as a result of ambiguous language, or when dealing with customers / vendors that use weak contracts to their advantage, knowing they are not as enforceable as they appear.
