Drafting And Reviewing Commercial Contracts: Protecting Your Business Interests

Contracts can be complex and confusing documents. At Brawn Karras & Sanderson, we have decades of experience drafting and reviewing contracts for business owners in South Surrey-White Rock and throughout the lower mainland.

BKS Law will use its expertise to assist you in negotiating business contracts to protect your rights, clarify your obligations and reduce the chances of future litigation.

Business Contracts For New And Growing Ventures

Even if you’re entering a business with an acquaintance, an associate or a relative, a detailed written contract is essential to set out each person’s rights and obligations. It’s important to be clear on the terms of your contract and to customize them to meet your business needs. Templated contracts often don’t account for the unique needs of your business. At BKS Law, we will make sure your contracts meet the specifics of your transaction or agreement and identify risks so there are no surprises down the road.

Our lawyers approach your contract with your needs in mind. We will learn all about your business, whether it is a small business, a real estate development or a corporation. We will determine what types of contracts need to be drafted to meet your business goals. We will also review any standard contracts that your business needs to succeed such as:

  • Shareholders agreements
  • The drafting or review of commercial leases and licences
  • Confidentiality agreements and nondisclosure agreements
  • Noncompetition agreements and restrictive covenants
  • Employment agreements and independent contractor agreements
  • Co-ownership, joint venture or partnership agreements

Our legal team can help you negotiate the contracts essential to giving your business its best chance to prosper.

Reviewing Contracts To Protect Your Interests

When a contract is presented to you, don’t sign it without seeking legal advice. We will leverage years of comprehensive contract law experience, along with our understanding of you and your business, to examine the contract and ensure that your rights are protected. Before you sign a contract, we’ll make sure you understand its terms and are made aware of potential risks. If you should renegotiate it, we’ll tell you — and assist you to do so.
