How commercial property deals go wrong

If you’re purchasing real property for your business, there are more factors at play than acquiring it from a seller and moving into it. The contracts can be extensive and confusing. You risk signing away your rights if you don’t have a skilled representative looking out for your interests.

The first thing that could go wrong is that the property seller or lessor is not authorized to sell the property. You could lose your invested money or end up spending more money on legal fees while losing precious time better spent on your business.

When it comes to real estate, there are different regulations, taxes, forms, and procedures that can protect you from litigation. An attorney can ensure you don’t endure a lengthy legal process.

Complex factors affecting business contracts

Businesses are vulnerable at many levels. Contracts will hold your business together and protect it against lawsuits and loss of assets. Trade secrets are some of your most valuable assets. They may require having employees or contractors — anyone with access to sensitive company information — sign a nondisclosure or noncompete agreement. Even hiring contractors or working with outside vendors may call for having the language suit your business goals.

  • Noncompete agreements. Employees have access to how your company works and the methods used in production or services. Should your relationship with that employee cease, it may be introducing a potential competitor to your market, leaving you at a disadvantage.
  • Nondisclosure agreement. Your product or service is successful because you have found a way to be different from others, and one of your first priorities is protecting trade secrets. Information is king in business, and you entrust employees and shareholders with it each day. This is why it is necessary to protect this sensitive asset with a nondisclosure agreement that protects against any potential loopholes that could become expensive for you and the life of your company.
  • Partnership and shareholder agreements. If you’re partnering or creating a company with shareholders, contracts provide legally binding terms that protect you and the parties involved. An attorney can ensure the terms provide for efficient remedies to related disputes that would otherwise distract you from the day-to-day operation of your business.

It’s imperative to have the right contract to sign for your next move. This is why you need an attorney who can review your contracts and help you draft the terms that benefit and secure your ability to achieve your goals. Attorney Curtis J. Butcher can also assist you with reviewing and drafting:
