Contracts

In every business, contracts define the terms of a transaction and provide the ability to enforce the agreement. Contracts are the cornerstone of business.

Some contracts are internal and govern business matters such as management, sales, and succession among owners. Other contracts are external. When a client wants to buy, sell, lease, or finance, our Business Law Team crafts and negotiates the appropriate contracts and other necessary documents for each particular situation.

Our extensive experience in drafting, negotiating, and reviewing contracts for West Michigan businesses enables us to provide comprehensive representation for any contract matter or issue. We handle all contracts that are part of any business cycle, including contracts relating to:

  • Sale or purchase of property
  • Leases
  • Employment
  • Independent contractors
  • Joint ventures
  • Confidentiality and non-disclosure
  • Non-competition
  • Indemnity
  • Franchising
  • Financing
