Contracts are the single most important document that can make or break a business. There are hundreds of relationships a business in Virginia may be required to manage at one time: relationships with employees, independent contractors, vendors, customers, landlord, investors, and even banks and other financial institutions. Every one of these relationships is a contract that your business law firm, or general legal counsel, should draft or review to make sure it is in your best interest and fits with your company’s overall objectives and operates within the given laws of your jurisdiction.
A good general legal counsel manages these relationships in a proactive way. In order to be proactive, your legal counsel will take the time to fully understand your business and provide valuable business counsel outside of just filling in blanks on standard templates.
Argent Place Law supports you and your relationships through contract negotiations by giving you a clearer picture of the relationship being proposed. In addition, Argent Place Law works directly with you to understand some of the most missed and most crucial section of a contract: the terms and termination section.
