Let Us Help With Contracts So You're Protected

Unfortunately, many people think they are saving money by avoiding the legal expense associated with contract review or drafting. At Howell, Buchan & Strong, we understand how to negotiate and draft all types of contracts.

Without legal advice in the contract review and drafting phase, disputes can arise when attempting to interpret or enforce a contract. We are experienced in negotiating and drafting contracts that are less prone to dispute. 

We’ve commented about do-it-yourself contracts and the consequences of not seeking legal advice from experienced contract law attorneys on this DIY Disasters of Writing Your Own Legal Contracts blog.

We can help with your contracting needs and negotiations!

Employment Contracts

Our Firm has encountered employment agreements that contain clauses that are simply not enforceable. This goes against the interests of both the employer and the employee. At Howell, Buchan & Strong, our team has extensive experience in employment law and contract law and understands how to craft specific clauses that are in the best interest of both parties. Let us review and help draft your employment agreement. 

Buy/Sell Agreements

Buy/Sell Agreements, if prepared by a layperson or someone not knowledgeable about contract law, can lead to many legal issues and, more importantly, cost everyone money. We regularly encounter issues with forms or documents created by non-Florida lawyers. Our team of experienced Florida lawyers understands the intricacies and specific requirements of Buy/Sell Agreements.

Restrictive Covenants or Non-Compete Agreements

Florida law has specific requirements and limitations relating to non-compete clauses. Employees, independent contractors, vendors, and employers encounter and implement restrictive covenants and non-compete agreements regularly. We often hear from clients who do not understand how a restrictive covenant or non-compete agreement may apply in their situation. Allow our team of experienced attorneys to advise you on these matters before you run into problems in the future. Additionally, we can advise you on your options if it is alleged that you may have violated the terms of the agreement. 

Asset Purchase Agreements and Other Business Sales

Whether you seek to sell the business you grew, or are interested in buying a business as your next endeavor, it is important that there are no surprises. Our team of attorneys understands the elaborate complexities of asset purchase agreements or other agreements for the sale of businesses. The agreements should define certain aspects of the sale in specific detail. Let an experienced attorney at Howell, Buchan & Strong draft, review, and advise you on your business sale or purchase.

Commercial Leases

If you are renting space to others or renting space from a landlord for your own business, it is important to understand the terms that apply, including the rental term, guarantor requirements, and expense allocation. Beyond these important issues, there are specific rules that apply to certain professions or facilities, such as health care facilities and organizations. 

Contracts and agreements are essential to all businesses. Lean on legal experts who put your interests first when drafting, reviewing, or negotiating contract terms and agreements.
