Business Contracts

Before a business or individual enters into an agreement -- especially a significant contract or renewal -- it's wise to consult a business lawyer.

The attorneys at Wolcott Rivers Gates will review the contract to make sure it spells out the terms of the agreement and that you understand those terms. Many disputes arise when both sides think that they have agreed but later argue over what was promised. Simply put, a written contract minimizes those surprises.

We also know it's important to include contractual language as it relates to:

  • Discrimination
  • Harassment
  • Wrongful termination
  • Non-compete agreements

You also need to clear explanation on what's contained in the written contract. Our attorneys will guide you in the formation of the agreement and/or review of the document to confirm that it:

  • Describes exactly what each party is required to do
  • Establishes deadlines for those items
  • Sets forth the consequences if deadlines are not met
  • Outlines what happens if/when the business relationship comes to an end

We can also formulate contracts as they relate to vendors, suppliers, employees and customers. A few examples:

  • Employment contracts
  • Contracts with customers
  • Contracts with suppliers
  • Contracts with subcontractors
  • Government contracts
