Contracts are at the heart of operating a business. Supplier contracts, operating contracts, supplier contracts and employment contracts are only a few of the types of contracts that control the way a company conducts its business. Because contracts are so central, disputes arising from them can be disruptive and expensive.
At Raipher, P.C., our attorneys protect businesses from litigation by preparing contracts that hold up. However, disputes still arise. When they occur, we vigorously defend our clients’ interests during negotiation, mediation and trial.
We draft and review contracts of all types. Some recent examples of the complex contracts we prepare include:
- Joint venture agreements
- Employment agreements
- Stock option agreements
- Noncompete agreements
- Confidentiality agreements
- Buy-sell agreements
- Partnership agreements
- Licensing agreements
- Structured loan and financing agreements
- Business formation documents, including those for limited liability companies (LLCs) and partnerships
- Requests for proposal/requests for bid
Litigation can arise even from the most carefully and meticulously prepared contract. When that happens, our attorneys try to help clients resolve the dispute in the most cost-effective and timely way. We provide clients with our analysis of the situation, and we recommend the course of action most likely to get the result needed by our client.
