Contract Drafting & Negotiation

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In addition to providing litigation and trial services, the Law Office of William Hanson provides preventative or holistic services designed to ward off problems down the road. As experience has taught us, the methods by which contracts are attacked and defended are revealed at trial. We use this knowledge so that we can better prepare and articulate provisions in contracts unique to your particular set of circumstances. If you’re not careful, a contract could leave you vulnerable or take your company a step in the wrong direction. We use our experience and the lessons revealed at trial when providing contract drafting and negotiation services designed to keep you from ever having to seek a resolution to a dispute.

Our Approach to Business Contracts

With more than three decades of experience in business law, we know what to look for in contracts, as well as what preventative measures to put in place in order to keep your business protected. When we draft or review a contract on your behalf, we consider long-term impacts, cost-saving strategies, and your unique business needs.

Protective and Preventative Measures & Long-Term Impacts

Before drafting your own contract, or signing someone else’s, allow us to look it over. We’ll put the necessary protective and preventative measures in place, help you to identify and correct terms that are missing or could hurt your position and, if requested, negotiate or help you to negotiate better terms for your business. We can build in safeguards that protect you from legal ramifications now and in the future.

Cost-Effective Strategies

Forward-thinking preventative measures can save you significant time and money in the long run. We’re here to help you, not overcharge. We’ll draft a clear understanding between the parties. This is a cost-saving tactic designed to avoid litigation and disputes later on.
