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.
