From the time that children first learn to talk, they begin to test their boundaries. They quickly learn which rules are enforced and which rules can be broken. They also learn which parent/caregiver will follow through on threatened consequences and which parent/caregiver is all talk.
Even as adults, human beings test their boundaries. Unfortunately, this means that companies and business owners must be prepared to hold others to written agreements. A contract is only valuable if it can be enforced. Sometimes, the willingness to enforce a contract will be tested.
What does all this mean for business owners and heads of companies? It speaks to the importance of having reliable legal representation for all disputes with employees, vendors and business partners.
Working with an experienced business law attorney is about more than just enforcing your own contracts. Your attorney can also read over any contracts you are asked to sign to make sure that they are fair and reasonable.
At SAC Attorneys LLP, we understand business and commercial law inside and out. We regularly help clients with all manner of contract issues, including drafting, negotiating, enforcing and, if need be, litigating. Because going to court can be expensive and time consuming, we often try to help clients resolve problems through various methods of alternative dispute resolution. If mediation, negotiation and arbitration are not successful or cannot be used, we are prepared to take a case to trial.
Many small business owners think that they cannot afford a legal team. But because the success of any business depends on honoring contracts, most businesses cannot afford to be without good legal help.
