Contracts govern the relationships between parties in many situations and in many sectors — business, employment, real estate, government, and health care, just to name a few. A well-drafted contractual agreement is key to avoid unnecessary litigation between, for example, a doctor and his/her business associate(s), and to ensure both parties to a contract have an accurate understanding of what their duties are.
The attorneys at Chapman Law Group have years of experience in reviewing and interpreting a wide variety of contracts. We are familiar with the applicable legal standards for interpreting contractual provisions under state law.
The best approach to developing a contract between parties is for both parties to have experienced counsel involved in drafting and reviewing the contract. Once the terms and definitions are satisfactory to both parties, they can enter what hopefully will be a mutually beneficial contractual relationship. To limit the chances of a dispute, a good contract will:
- Specify how and where contractual disputes will be addressed
- Ensure all contractual terms are legal and enforceable
- Ensure that all language used is clear and unambiguous
Sometimes contractual disputes arise despite the parties’ best efforts. Our attorneys are experienced in reviewing the claims and developing a strategy to effectively approach the issue.
