Contracts: The Building Blocks Of Business Relationships

Contracts form the foundation on which business takes place. In the past, business transactions were often based on handshake agreements and a person’s good word. But oral agreements leave either party exposed to unexpected legal and financial exposure.

A written contract helps avoid misinterpretations and ambiguities by clearly defining the contractual obligations of each party while protecting business interests. A comprehensive contract not only furthers your business interests, but it can also shelter you from personal liability. For help with any contract-related needs, turn to Phillips & Mille Co., L.P.A..

Robust Protection And Support

Although an essential component of day-to-day business operations, contracts are often hastily drafted and signed, leaving parties open to conflict and unexpected liability later. We provide contract drafting, review and enforcement to businesses and individuals throughout northeastern Ohio. Backed by more than 25 years of experience in complex contract actions, we know how to write concise, tailor-made, legally binding documents that hold up in court.

Our firm can create, enforce or defend a wide range of contracts, including, but not limited to:

  • Business-to-business contracts
  • Residential real estate purchase agreements
  • Commercial real estate purchase agreements
  • Vendor agreements
  • Buy/sell agreements
  • Asset purchase agreements
  • Non-compete agreements
  • Nondisclosure agreements
  • Operating agreements
  • Close corporation agreements
  • Leases

In- And Out-Of-Court Enforcement

While a well-written contract establishes the contractual obligations of each party, if one party fails to uphold their responsibilities, a breach of contract dispute can ensue. Our trial-tested commercial litigators have more than two decades of courtroom experience. We know how to build and articulate a compelling argument to support your case if out-of-court negotiations fail.
