Contracts are the “bread and butter” of every business. Without clear, legally binding, mutually beneficial contracts between a business entity and its vendors, partners, shareholders, and employees, that business can’t grow and scale. Contracts affect everything that a company does. That’s why if you’re a business owner, you need to make sure that you have good contracts that protect your interests! In L.A., where the commercial landscape is especially competitive, enlisting the help of a skilled Los Angeles contract lawyer can give you an advantage. The Law Office of Josiah Young, P.C., is your best choice to write, examine, and enforce the contracts you need for your venture to thrive. Call today to request a consultation!

Why Do You Need To Work With A Contract Attorney?

Running a business in L.A. is no small feat, and it’s more time-consuming than your typical 9-5 (especially if you are in the early stages of growing your company). You have so many things to do and dream about, and you also probably don’t have extensive legal knowledge about California commercial contract law, which is why you shouldn’t try to negotiate contracts on your own! 

Taking a “DIY” approach will cost you valuable time on research and drafting that could be spent achieving your business goals. It can also cost you much more than that; any mistakes you make when writing or accepting a contract can result in lawsuits or unfulfilled business deals later on. You’ll have to spend tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in litigation fees, and you could potentially have to pay up to millions in damages to the other party (depending on the outcome). 

Working with a Los Angeles contract lawyer can minimize your risk from the start so you can save time, prevent liability, and avoid expensive litigation. A knowledgeable attorney knows what contracts must include to be legally valid. They can explain your options to you and handle the paperwork so that you can focus on doing what you do best without distraction.

What Our Los Angeles Contract Lawyer Can Do For You

Contract Drafting

The surest way to preclude a contract dispute is to write the contract well in the first place. If the terms of the contract are unambiguous, it’s much less likely that problems will arise later on. 

Attorney Josiah Young, Esq. can create any contracts you need in order to conduct business, including:

  • Employment contracts
  • Independent contractor agreements
  • LLC operating agreements
  • Non-compete agreements
  • NDAs (non-disclosure agreements)
  • Merger and acquisition agreements
  • Bills of sale
  • Equipment leasing agreements
  • Sales and marketing agreements
  • Shareholder agreements
  • And more.

He can ensure that the terms of the contract are crystal clear and include all of the elements that legally enforceable contracts have to have, such as the offer (one party making a promise to do something), consideration (something of value promised in exchange for the action), acceptance (the offer and consideration were agreed upon by both parties), and mutuality (a “meeting of the minds”, or reciprocal understanding of the terms between parties). 

Contract Review

If you are being presented with a contract to enter into, such as one of the ones above, a commercial lease agreement, a warranty, or something else, it is of vital importance that a Los Angeles contract lawyer reviews the contract before you sign. That’s because contract language can be confusing. If you don’t fully understand what you’re signing, or if what you’re signing is deceptively taking advantage of you, then you may be a victim of a bad deal. You may have to pursue litigation in order to get what’s owed to you, or you may have no legal recourse for doing so; you could get stuck in a contract that’s not benefiting you, or even be sued by the other party for violating a term of the contract you didn’t understand. 

Mr. Young can provide an in-depth, line-by-line analysis, taking the time to explain everything to you and correct any loopholes. He will certify that the contract is fair and guards your interests! Having his careful, trained eye looking out for you can give you peace of mind.

Contract Disputes/Litigation (Breach Of Contract)

If there is a disagreement over the terms of the contract – the other party doesn’t uphold their end of the deal, or accuses you of doing so – then you need to immediately enlist the services of a Los Angeles contract lawyer who can represent you in negotiations or in court. Contract disputes have the potential to derail your business’s growth or cost your business hundreds of thousands (or even millions) of dollars unless you work with an attorney who can pursue justice and aggressively defend your rights. Josiah M. Young can fight for the best resolution.
