Proven Orlando Contract Attorneys Ready To Help You
Contracts are the core of every business deal and decision.
They affect every aspect of a company, from the employees and internal operations to vendors and commercial deals.
Contracts set the terms to an agreement, outline rules and expectations, and hold parties accountable to uphold their end of the bargain.
By hiring an experienced Orlando contract lawyer to help your business, you are protecting your company from being taken advantage of and giving your business a competitive advantage.
At the law firm of BrewerLong, our knowledgeable Orlando contract attorneys have years of experience zealously advocating on behalf of our business clients by drafting, negotiating, reviewing, and finalizing contracts that put these companies in the best possible position to succeed.
J.A.W.Non-Compete Agreement in an Employment Contract
BrewerLong represented J.A.W., an LLC shareholder purchasing a company. The individual who was selling the company had an employment contract with the seller to continue working with the sold company for two years as the buyers transitioned into running the business. The employment contract was a key component of the sales agreement, which included an agreement for the seller to non-compete nor solicit employees to prevent the seller from working against the company. The problem for J.A.W arose when the seller did not honor the terms of the non-compete and worked against the business. He went so far as to change the locks and resume control of the business even though he had sold it and accepted an initial deposit on its sale.
Furthermore, the seller successfully solicited the employee charged with running things for J.A.W, who was out of state. In response, J.A.W. ceased paying on the payments owed for the acquisition of the business until they could work through the breach of contract. However, the seller then used J.A.W.’s nonpayment to claim default on the sale. For going against his contract, BrewerLong sued the seller. The result for our client was a settlement for a significant sum of money and terms that highly favored them.

1. Contract Preparation and Drafting
Proper contract preparation and drafting is the first step to ensuring that your interests are protected in an agreement. Contract drafting also clearly outlines the terms of the deal as you understand it and makes sure that no important details are omitted from the contract.
In addition, by drafting a formal contract to solidify an agreement, you get the peace of mind knowing that the deal is legally enforceable and that a court remedy is available if one side fails to live up to their end of the bargain.
2. Legal Document and Contract Review
The number of contracts that a business enters into can be staggering, and while most contracts come with standard terms and conditions, occasionally a contract comes with unique aspects that need to be reviewed.
Having a lawyer review your contracts ensures that:
- your interests are always protected,
- that the contract says what it is supposed to,
- and that another party is not trying to take advantage of your business by placing an undue burden on your side of the agreement.
3. Contract Negotiation
It is critical to the success of your business that you get the most advantageous terms in every contract deal.
An experienced Orlando contract attorney is in the best position to negotiate terms and place your business in the best position possible to succeed.
Contract lawyers also understand the law and how certain clauses in a contract will be interpreted by the court if a dispute arises later.
The more complex the arrangement, the more important it is that you have an experienced contract law attorney negotiate your deal.
4. Contract Dispute Resolution and Breach of Contract Claims
Despite all best planning and efforts, occasionally contract disputes will come up in the course of your business. Usually, this involves one or both sides accusing the other of breach of contract, and the litigation fallout can cost a significant amount of time, money, and stress to your business.
Orlando contract law lawyers have a number of options to resolve contract disputes, from alternative methods like mediation and arbitration to full litigation in a court of law. Do not try to settle a dispute all alone, and let the Orlando contract law attorney at BrewerLong help.
Why a Contract Attorney is Important
Every day, businesses of all sizes enter into a number of contracts. Contracts are the cornerstone of every company and what allows it to function and prosper.
However, in order for a business to operate properly, all parties involved in these contracts must follow through on their promise to deliver the terms of the agreement.
Unfortunately, this is not always the case. When issues with contracts arise, you need a lawyer experienced in contract law by your side representing your best interests in the deal.
By hiring an experienced contract attorney like those at BrewerLong from the onset of your contract needs, you protect your business interests with well-constructed agreements in addition to saving time, money, and stress if a dispute arises in a contract disagreement.
In addition, if you are entering into a contract written by another party, an Orlando contract law lawyer can review the terms and negotiate on your behalf. Not all contracts are well written or have your best interests at heart.
A contract law attorney can explain the terms, provide advice on how to proceed, and answer any other questions you might have about a potential contract for your company. We can explain how an overall contract, or provisions within the deal, can affect or impact your business if you choose to enter into the agreement.
Let our years of experience in contract law work for you.
