Business Contracts

Protecting Your Business Interests with Clarity and Foresight

A contract that clearly defines the business relationship, anticipates potential problems and is drafted with clear and unambiguous language is a powerful tool. It can protect your company's interests in a transaction. It can preserve the critical business relationships you depend on by clarifying roles and responsibilities. It can prevent talented employees or vital trade secrets from ending up in the hands of your competition. It can decrease the chance of costly disputes or litigation by identifying and eliminating potential misunderstandings before they occur.

At Reynolds Maddux Woodward LLP, the critical business relationships we depend on are the ones we have with our clients. Where contracts are concerned, our lawyers work to earn trust and build long-term, mutually beneficial relationships by diligently maximizing the benefit and managing the risks associated with entering into business contracts so that our clients can focus more of their time and energy on business itself.

Breach of Contract Disputes

Breach of contract claims are one of the most common sources of civil litigation in the United States. In our practice, we strive to reduce the likelihood of future litigation by drafting business contracts that clearly define the rights and obligations of each of the parties, as well as provide alternatives to litigation and the remedies for breach. That said, no matter how clearly a business contract is worded, breach is always a possibility.

Our attorneys are forceful advocates, skilled at both resolving disputes through negotiation and alternative dispute resolution methods and in the courtroom.
