The contracts between your company and suppliers, sales contracts and ongoing service agreements, and employment contracts are the foundation of your business. The quality of your business contracts will have a substantial impact on the success of your company. This is why it is important to work with an experienced and seasoned San Diego business contract attorney at the Watkins Firm. After decades of service to San Diego businesses, our attorneys craft creative and yet authoritative contracts that guide transactions and business relationships.
Many young business owners and entrepreneurs wish to save money by using generic contracts downloaded from a website, or worse, copied from a previous work experience or the open internet itself. Why is this such a risky strategy? Our decades of experience have proven one business maxim over and over again: if you are in business, sooner or later you will end up in a dispute. The quality of the contract guiding that transaction or relationship will go a long way to determining how much money it will cost to resolve the dispute.
The majority of the costs associated with business disputes and litigation is spent on testimony and work by the Judge and respective attorneys to “fill in” the gaps in the contract itself. If the contract is not carefully constructed by an experienced San Diego business contract attorney, it will have significant “holes” in language associated with the responsibilities of the parties, the quality of goods or services to be provided, the timeliness and the responsibility to remit payment. The broader the gaps in the contract, the more time it takes for a Judge to get to the bottom of the dispute and re-construct the essence of the agreement. This must be done before any determination can be made regarding the ultimate outcome of the dispute.
