Business Contracts

Many young companies, small business owners, and aspiring entrepreneurs believe they can draft their own contracts and agreements simply by searching the internet for templates or by purchasing a “customized” template through an online document service. This method of document development is dangerous and potentially a huge liability. What seems like a cost-effective method can quickly turn into a mistake that costs your business everything. We protect business owner’s finances and rights. The importance of having favorable business contracts cannot be overstated. We have seen how small clauses in a contract can decide millions of dollars.

We understand that document preparation and review can seem like a large cost you can avoid by doing the work yourself, especially newer companies that may not have many resources. However, we will work with you to make sure the costs are reasonable and affordable.

Contract Disputes and Breach of Contract

Contract disputes occur frequently and are very common. Each party in a contract has certain rights. When contractual obligations go unfulfilled, one party has a legal right to bring a claim against the other. The St. Louis contract attorneys of LongoBiggs, LC represent those who wish to pursue litigation against a defaulting party and those parties who are being sued for breach of contract. We’ll evaluate and interpret your documents to show breach-of-contract and will seek compensation for you or aggressively disprove any invalid claims brought against you.
