At our law firm in Newport Beach, Orange County, our lawyers help you draft and negotiate strong contracts tailored to the individual needs and nature of your business. Each business and business situation is different and requires the inclusion of custom clauses and formulations to effectively protect the best interests of your business. If there is a problem, the written agreement will greatly facilitate the application of the legislation. If the client decides to cooperate with another agency for half of the project, the supplier could take legal action to be paid for the work done. On the other hand, if the service provider does not perform well, the provider has legal protection against labour compensation. The absence of written service contracts and sales contracts has led to many disagreements. This can lead to lost business and ill will. In some cases, if the contract is not written, it is unenforceable – even if there is no controversy about the terms. Most states have adopted the Single Code of Trade (UCC), which stipulates that all contracts must be concluded in writing if the contract lasts more than one year. Business owners use service agreements when selling their services. They also use service contracts for the purchase of services, from office cleaning to automotive services, instruments and machinery maintenance. Asset acquisition contracts are the vehicle in which share sales can be made.
Such agreements can take place from a few parties up to 50 or more, depending on the investors and the complexity of the agreement. Commercial contracts should contain all the details of the exchange, including payment, the type of goods or services and the responsibilities of each party. A business contract protects both the buyer and the seller if the other party does not maintain its agreement.
