Contractual Issues

All companies are familiar with the issues presented by contracts, as well as the necessity of having an enforceable and strong contract on your side.  Throughout the life of your business, from organization to dissolution, your company will have contractual needs every step of the way.  Additionally, when the inevitable happens, and some other party has failed to comply with the terms of your contract, the financial success and stability of your company can be at risk.

The Law Offices of Kent Petry will take a studious and comprehensive approach to your contracts, making sure that your needs and expectations are addressed.  Avoid the quick and dirty form contracts that cannot and will not address your individual situation, and which were not crafted with you in mind.  We will review every relevant document and develop a customized strategy for every contract in order to minimize your exposure to disputes down the line.  Moreover, we can address and resolve issues that have already occurred, including those involving:

  • Operations: Employment agreements, non-disclosure and noncompete agreements, distribution and sales contracts, licensing agreements, intellectual property agreements, severance agreements, vendor contracts, insurance policies and other related matters.

  • Organization: Operating agreements, shareholder resolutions, partnership agreements, franchise agreements, formation documents and more.

  • Finances: Investor agreements, promissory notes, loans, security agreements, and private placement memorandums.

  • Termination: Dissolution agreements, sales agreements and other transactions.
