Contract law is an important part of any business. Many aspects of a business are impacted by contracts and contractual relationships. Most business relationships are governed by contracts and it is a good idea that they are. It is also important to understand how to negotiate, draft and execute the best contract to describe the business relationship at hand. Contracts outline the rights, responsibilities and obligations of the parties towards one another. In doing so, they help protect the long-term future and success of the company.
Contracts, including general business contracts, real estate contracts, construction contracts, bank and financing contracts and franchise agreements, are important in various industries. It is also important to know what to do when a business relationship or contract relationship has gone awry. Understanding how to respond to contract disputes such as a breach of contract, fraud, misrepresentation or shareholder dispute situations can be vital to a business.
Contracts can be written or oral and can be complex. It may be necessary to litigate a contract dispute or it may be possible to negotiate to find a solution to the contract dispute. Knowing how a contract functions in any particular situation is useful for business owners to help preserve important contractual relationships and enforce important aspects of a contractual relationship that can be essential to the proper functioning of the business. Baton Rouge attorney Dale M. Maas has knowledge and experience derived from years of assisting with both the drafting and the enforcement of contracts.
