Three Easy Steps to Get Started
Book and attend our Business Solutions Meeting
In this session, we will learn more about your business and your commercial contract / business transaction needs and prepare our Business Solutions Plan. We are confident that we will be a good fit for most businesses. If we are a good fit for each other, after the Business Solutions Meeting, you can engage us to move forward with the plan.
Contract Design Meeting
This is where we really dive in to learn all about you, your business, and the plan and/or documents we will be designing so that we can carefully craft everything to meet your needs. We will collect all of the information we need to design your contract and/or transaction. After the meeting, we will carry out the design and draft the documents.
Complete the Transaction
Next, we can make any necessary changes to the documents and negotiate terms and revisions with the other side. We will walk you through the process all the way to execution so that you can be confident at every step of the way. After the contract is signed, we can even help with monitoring key deadlines and aspects of performance so that you never have to worry about forgetting a deadline or other obligations.
Business Contract / Commercial Transaction Matters
Yes. You really do. No matter what stage of your business journey you are at, having well-crafted contracts is incredibly important. I’m from a small town in Texas, and I come from a blue-collar family. My grandfather was an actual cowboy – he rode a horse, worked cattle, fixed fences, you name it. He taught me that you are only as good as your word and that deals are done with a handshake. I think it would sadden him, and it certainly saddens me, that those things are not good enough anymore. So, while my handshake still carries significant meaning, I put my agreements in writing, and you should too. There is no other way to ensure that your business has the protection it needs. Well-designed contracts ensure that the other party has clearly defined obligations and time limitations and that there is no confusion about who is supposed to do what. They also ensure that there is a process for handling when things go wrong.
Like a lot of things in the legal world, it depends. It depends on where you are in your business journey. It depends on the purpose of the contract and the complexity of the deal. It depends on your niche and industry. Rest assured that in our Business Solutions Meeting, we will determine exactly what you need and give you your options. We won’t push you to buy legal services that you don’t need. We match the options to your specific business and transaction so that we can meet your needs and accomplish your goals.
Never use free forms you find on the internet. It is highly likely that those forms will not protect your business and could even create more problems than not having a contract at all. Likewise, I do not recommend using budget legal template providers. They put the work of being a lawyer on you… and that is not something that you need to be dealing with. You don’t need to be trying to decipher exactly what template fits your business needs. You don’t need to be trying to figure out how to modify their useless generalized forms for your specific business. You don’t need to be banging your head against the wall trying to fill out their forms correctly. Let us handle the legal work. If at your Business Solutions Meeting we determine that a custom template will be a good fit for you, we will let you know. If we determine that you need a fully customized contract to suit your needs, we will let you know that as well. We will present you with all of your options and let you decide what solution suits your needs the best.
We can handle it all! We can help with contract review and advice, drafting, negotiating, execution / closing, and monitoring post-execution.
We work on all types of contracts. The most common are shareholder agreements, operating agreements, employment agreements, independent contractor agreements, service agreements, terms and conditions, non-disclosure agreements, non-solicitation agreements, non-compete agreements, purchase and sale agreements, lease agreements, settlement agreements, assignment of contracts, franchise agreements and financing agreements just to name a few.
