One of Our Key Services Is Contract Review and Drafting

There was a time when doing business on a handshake made sense.  Regrettably, as things became more complicated and everyone has different motivations, contracts became more and more essential.  A contract is a document between two or more people that spells out exactly what the understanding is between the parties.  They are developed to force parties to consider what it is that they want and also to set the expectations between the parties.  Often, when there is a dispute, one or both parties point to the provisions in the contract to enforce their claims.

Contracts can be written or oral and there are a variety of forms of contracts.  In order to protect yourself, a well structured contract is essential. Scott Legal, P.C. can draft this for you. We can also review contracts that others have asked you to sign. Remember that if someone is asking you to sign something, there is a good chance that they had their lawyers draft it.  Why not be on a level playing field and get Scott Legal,P.C. to read the contract and give you some advice?

We can provide contract services in many areas including:

  • Contracts with vendors, suppliers, or distributors
  • Non-disclosure agreements
  • Non-compete agreements
  • Employment agreements
  • Contracts with contractors or service organizations
  • A wide range of other situations where an agreement is needed between parties
