Contracts come in many shapes and sizes, and can often be complicated or difficult to understand. At Stone, Wiley, & Linsenbach, we guide you through every aspect of preparing and implementing a contract. As we organize the details of your contract, we can also negotiate the contract terms with all parties involved, if you desire. In addition, we handle the drafting of the contract thru litigation and enforcement of your contract if there is a breach.
In the pre-drafting phase, we represent our client’s interests during negotiations of the terms of the deal. The first initial step in establishing a contract begins when you enter negotiations with the other party. This is the time when the parties decide who will write the contract. You want your counsel to write the contract. Hence the saying: “The pen is mightier than the sword”.
Our firm prides itself in taking the necessary time to properly draft a contract specific to your needs. It is important to remember that each and every contractual term may be vital to the document as a whole or it may not be. One legally ineffective term may make the entire document inadequate or place liability on you. In addition, if we are not drafting the contract, our firm will conduct a meticulous review of each contract provision to protect our clients from unfair terms, and assist them in negotiating a more favorable agreement. We attempt to advise on the balance between law and business needs/risks, and we discuss the cost-benefit analysis of contractual terms.
If a client becomes involved in a contractual dispute, our firm will evaluate the terms and actions taken by both parties to formulate a plan to resolve the dispute. We will fight to win if a lawsuit is necessary. There are never guarantees in winning, as our system has human error built into it by judges and juries, but we will do all that we can to convince them that you are correct. A thorough understanding of the legal evolution and development of contract law is critical to the effective representation of our clients. We are always at the forefront of contract law within Pennsylvania. Our firm has extensive experience in this area of practice due to the drafting and negotiation of countless contracts, teaching contract law, and resolving contract disputes with effective litigation. Please contact us with any questions or concerns you may have regarding negotiating, drafting, or litigating contracts.
