Contracts

Over the years, we’ve found that most contracts — whether commercial real estate, residential real estate, joint venture arrangements, business contracts, or agreements regarding intellectual property — start out with the best of intentions by all parties. However, just as two people can look at the same thing and have different interpretations, two parties entering into a contract can have different understanding of the words in the contract.  This is also complicated by the relative bargaining positions of the parties.

Our attorneys often get the call for help after a problem has developed. In many cases, disputes can be avoided in the opening days of negotiation simply by ensuring everyone understands and agrees on the details of the contract.

Our team is experienced in drafting contracts covering any business relationship, from real estate transactions to intellectual property, from executive employment to vendor and supplier dealings.

Our best advice to you is contact us with questions before there is a misunderstanding.  A clear, well drafted contract is the basis of a good business relationship and the best way to avoid problems in the future.

However, if there is already a conflict, you can count on us for the highest quality representation. We are litigators and trial attorneys at heart. We will be your best advocate in the courtroom, arbitration, or mediation.

Contact us by email or call our office at 925-600-1800 for a confidential consultation with one of our experienced attorneys. Evening and weekend meetings are available.
