Palm Springs Attorneys Assist with Business Agreements in California
Experienced lawyers provide comprehensive guidance on all aspects of business contracts
Businesses run on contracts. Well-drafted contracts set expectations and give parties enforceable rights. Comprehensive contracts anticipate potential circumstances and build in contingencies that protect your interests. If your written agreements are vague or incomplete, your business is at risk. At Schlecht, Shevlin & Shoenberger in Palm Springs, our business law attorneys are committed to giving your company every advantage that a carefully crafted contract can deliver. We offer personalized service to understand your circumstances and goals, so we can craft agreements designed to facilitate your success.
Experience with all types of business agreements
When you consult the knowledgeable business law attorneys at our firm, you get decades of experience across a wide range of industries. We are prepared to assist with all types of agreements, including:
- Partnership agreements — Each partner wants to feel his or her interests are protected. We advocate for our clients to ensure terms are clear. These include percentage of ownership, decision-making authority, intellectual property rights, contributions to the business, compensation, workload, modes of dispute resolution, liability, insurance and buy-sell agreements.
- Pre-incorporation agreements — When you are starting a business, even before you incorporate, your key players should commit to explicit roles and responsibilities. Pre-incorporation agreements decide matters such as the scope of liability for each director and officer.
- Corporate bylaws — We draft rules for companies so they can operate smoothly and stay in compliance with all applicable regulations.
- Contracts for goods and services — We draft clear agreements that give our clients the benefit of the bargain and protect them in the event of a breach.
- Construction contracts — Our firm represents various participants in the construction industry, drafting contracts between landowners, homeowners, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers and lenders.
- Dissolution agreements — When it’s time to wind down operations, we assist with dissolution agreements that protect our clients’ interests.
- Nondisclosure agreements — Businesses seeking to hire or enter into joint ventures must sometimes share trade secrets with outside parties. Fear of misappropriation can force them to hold back, resulting in missed opportunities for growth. A nondisclosure agreement maintains confidentiality, so a company can have meaningful discussions with candidates and explore fruitful opportunities. We draft nondisclosure agreements to be specific and fully enforceable.
Our attorneys draft contracts to avoid conflict, but when conflicts arise, our litigation department is fully prepared to take decisive action to protect your rights.
Employment agreements that build relationships
Although most employment in our country is at-will, employment contracts are still vitally important for companies that want to attract and retain top corporate talent. Executives also rely on contracts that provide certain guarantees. Our attorneys negotiate employment agreements for businesses and executives, covering important matters such as:
- Stock options
- Bonuses, commissions and incentives
- Performance metrics
- Dispute resolution
- Severance packages
Our attorneys understand the importance of drafting employment contracts that stabilize the relationship between employee and employer. Our goal is to create clear and comprehensive agreements that let parties know exactly where they stand under any foreseeable circumstance.
