Legal Document Drafting & Development
Legal documents and business contracts are essential to the success of any start-up or small business. Business negotiation or bargains for exchange should never happen without a properly drafted legal agreement or formal business contract. Whether offering to provide professional business services, purchasing a product, negotiating for the sale of a business, or dealing with independent contractor or employee issues, business contracts outline, protect and secure the relationships, rights and responsibilities of the parties involved.
A typical South Carolina start-up business or small business has formal or informal contractual relationships with its customers, vendors, partners, and employees. And the business owners likely owe a fiduciary duty to each other to grow the business, treat each other fairly, and divide the profits equitably. Without properly drafted, thoughtful legal documents in place, often times the business owners will have misunderstandings about the terms of the business relationship. A professionally drafted and properly executed business contract or agreement will help business owners manage risk, avoid unnecessary disputes, limit liability, and avoid unintended legal obligations.
