Most business transactions conducted today are done through the use of contracts. A contract is a binding agreement between two parties that sets terms for the transaction, including price, delivery and quantity of items to be sold. Properly drafting and negotiating contracts will allow you to clearly define and understand your business’s rights and obligations. When a dispute arises, you need an attorney who understands how to negotiate and litigate contracts cases. Steven Altman, Esq. handles contract drafting, negotiation and breach cases for my clients in New York.
I provide many contract-based services for my clients, including contract drafting. I work with you from the very beginning of the contract drafting or negotiation process to make sure the words in your contract clearly reflect the wishes of all parties and the agreements that have been reached verbally. When a dispute or breach arises, a well-written contract can reduce the need for litigation by clearly detailing the proper procedures in all foreseeable situations.
In addition to helping you draft a solid contract, I help your business revise, update or modify existing contracts to reflect changing circumstances. I work directly with your company to help you avoid breaching a contract and to enforce another party’s compliance with a contract when they are in danger of breach. I am committed to helping my clients’ businesses thrive, and dedicated to helping you achieve the results you desire.
If one party to a contract does not live up to their side of the bargain, it is known as breach of contract, and the other party can sue for any damages that resulted from the breach. These damages are not necessarily physical. They can also include profits lost on sales that fell through and time wasted in waiting for deliveries that did not arrive as promised. I have experience representing companies and individuals on both sides of breach cases. Whether your party is the one who breached the agreement or the one seeking to enforce the agreement on a breaching party, I can help.
If your company is in the process of drafting or negotiating a contract, or if a contract has been breached, you need legal help. Call Steven Altman, Esq. today at 917-207-3001 or contact me online to schedule a consultation at my East Hampton, New York office.
