Snohomish County Washington Business Contracts/Transactions Attorney
Your company does business with multiple counterparties every day. When you provide goods or services to others, you have agreements with both customers and vendors. These agreements must be in writing to give you the full protection that you need. Without written contracts, you could be at legal risk.
Not only do you need your agreements to be in writing, but you also should have an experienced lawyer review the document before you sign. Once you execute a contract, you are bound by its terms. The other party can take you to court for breach of contract if you do not perform in accordance with the terms of the agreement.
Every word and comma in a contract is critical. They can change the way that a vital term of the contract is read, even if you did not mean for it when you negotiated the agreement. The court will go first by what they see on paper, making legal review even more critical.
You should get the advice of a lawyer for any major business transaction. You would assume a legal relationship with the other party to the deal. If anything goes wrong, you could end up in a perilous place. An experienced attorney could help you by doing the following:
- Helping you negotiate the terms of the transaction
- Pointing out legal considerations that may impact the deal
- Reviewing and drafting the written agreement that would memorialize the transaction
- Address tax considerations that could impact your deal
Working with an attorney today can help you avoid unwanted surprises tomorrow.
