Why Hire A Litigator To Negotiate Your Business Contracts?
To put it succinctly, experienced litigators see what happens when contracts are poorly thought-out and drafted. Fixating only on the relevant performance terms, many business owners simply overlook the multitude of boilerplate provisions that dictate important aspects of their contractual obligations. During their decades in litigation practices in large law firms, attorneys Erik Knockaert and Joe Schreiber gained firsthand experience in what happens when business owners allow out-of-date, unenforceable language to remain in contracts. They have advised deal-lawyers at the large firms while working as litigators, in order to help clients avoid litigation, or be in a much better position if and when litigation arose. We know that it is far easier to prevent problems than to have to address them once they've arisen and gone to litigation. We help negotiate contracts, or contract provisions that will stand up in court, and put our clients in a better position if there is a dispute, or at least explain the legal ramifications of provisions proposed by the other side, so business owners can mitigate their risk.
