Services an Austin Business Contract Lawyer Can Provide

A skilled Austin business contract lawyer can not only interpret and litigate existing contracts for your firm, but he can also draft new contracts, review existing contracts, and pursue breach of contract claims.

Contract Drafting

Whether you need a contract drafted for a supplier, customer, employee, municipality, or all of the above, attorney Andrew Weisblatt is knowledgeable and skilled at drafting contracts that benefit his clients. He leaves out no details and is meticulous in using precise language that protects your business interests.

Contract Review

A contract law attorney in Austin can review your contracts to ensure that they are updated and accurately reflect your future business goals. He can also look for ways to strengthen your contracts when they are being renewed. Additionally, if another business offers you a contract to sign, it’s always a good idea to have your own attorney review the document to make sure your business interests are strongly represented.

Breach of Contract

Most business owners dread the headache of dealing with a breach of contract situation. That’s why it’s great to have contract lawyers in Austin who can handle this for you. If you have a customer or supplier who breaches a contract with your business, we can litigate the case or negotiate a settlement to compel performance or collect damages.

Other Types of Contracts We Can Help With

Management Rights Letter

A management rights letter is, in essence, a contract that grants certain rights to investors beyond the default rights granted under the ownership agreement. Both company management and company investors may propose a management rights letter as a separate contract between the two parties. Weisblatt Law Firm can draft such a letter for your business, if needed.

A management rights letter often grants elevated privileges to the investors, such as permitting attendance at board meetings, inspection of accounts rights, and access to company financial documentation. The company may not make these into default rights, and thus they require negotiation and a separate contract. Often, companies employ a business attorney to create the management rights letter, which helps ensure the document properly addresses all relevant rights.

Non-Disclosure Agreements

In some cases, a non-disclosure agreement may be necessary in the course of doing business. There are many situations in which you may benefit from sharing confidential information with another party on a conditional basis. For example, many businesses that operate in the Austin area operate using proprietary information that provides them with an advantage in the marketplace. Information that can result in a competitive advantage can take a variety of forms, such as a manufacturing technique, a client list, or an analytical process. In addition, there are times when a business or an entrepreneur must describe an idea in detail to investors, manufacturers, developers, or other parties simply to explore its viability. All of this proprietary information can be protected by having parties sign a well-crafted non-disclosure agreement.

Statute of Frauds in Business Contracts

For clarity purposes, it is always best to memorialize a contract in writing to avoid confusion later. A verbal agreement or handshake is not the best way to protect your interests. In addition, a law referred to as the “statute of frauds” requires that contracts with certain terms always be in writing to be enforceable. Texas has its own version of the statute of frauds in the state Business and Commerce Code. The law states that contracts must be written and signed under the following circumstances:

If your business contract involves any of the above, it must be in writing. However, it is always a good idea to have written contracts, regardless of the subject matter of the agreement.
