Specializing in Contracts
Whether you need a contract created or defended, or you find yourself locked in a service or sales contract, McMechan Law, LLC., can assist you. We will work with you to understand the situation, carefully review any documentation and give you the best possible advice when dealing with an existing contract, creating a new one or dissolving a contract.
Contracts must lay out all terms and distribute risks appropriately. COVID-19 and force majeure clauses are a current issue in businesses and mortgage contracts. We can create, modify or review any contract, not just real estate and estate planning contracts.
When to Consider Hiring a Contracts Lawyer
A contract generally is legally enforceable unless one party signed the contract under duress. Contract attorneys frequently help during the due diligence process, as well as during contract litigation. Because laws and regulations can change, contracts often need revisions to continue to be legal and enforceable.
A contracts lawyer is also integral in the real estate process when purchasing or selling property for residential or commercial use. A contracts lawyer can specifically assist with:
- Contract litigation
- Contracts related to mergers & acquisitions
- Reviewing or changing employee contracts
- Contracts relating to intellectual property
We Can Help With Signing or Creating Contracts
You may need to consider hiring a lawyer who specializes in contracts when you need a professional who is familiar with the wording of contracts and can ensure the contract is binding. We even can identify potential loopholes in a contract. An attorney can help you plan a contract to ensure it’s admissible in court.
An experienced lawyer can also advise you in the event that you are about to sign a contract and aren’t sure if it’s in your best interest.
