Business Contracts in Irvine and Orange County
Essential to the operation of nearly every business is it’s customer and vendor agreements and contracts. Additionally, Business Contracts between and among owners, shareholders and investors are critical to business operations and distributions. Although most relationships start off on excellent terms between co-owners, customers, and the like, having solid contracts in place is nonetheless an essential part of operating a business and avoiding litigation and issues down the road. From a legal standpoint, it is much easier to counsel and advise a business before problems arise at the contract initiation stage. All too often clients only seek counsel after problems arise rather than addressing any ambiguity up front between owners or with customers. Renegotiating or adding contract terms after a problem or dispute arises is typically very difficult and counter-productive as the parties, by that time, have “re-imagined” the contract to serve their purposes exclusively.
Although there are an unlimited number of different business contracts, some common types of business contracts which McFarlin LLP has experience drafting, negotiating and enforcing are as follows:

McFarlin LLP not only prepares and drafts business contracts but litigates business contract disputes as well. Having this “litigation perspective” can be a huge advantage in contract negotiation because we’ve not only prepared similar contracts but likely litigated many, if not all, contract provisions as well. This provides a perspective of knowing where things may break down, and how to position our client for the best result if the parties disagree at some point.
