NJ Commercial Transactions and Litigation Attorneys
While many legal issues are related to personal affairs, others can involve parties doing business with one another. The approach in a commercial case is often quite different than in other legal matters and the attorneys at Cozzi & Cozzi Counsellors at Law always have your profits and bottom line in mind. We handle a wide variety of commercial disputes in the most efficient way possible, including but not limited to the following:
No matter what type of business you run—large or small—there will come a time when you must enter into an agreement with another business or individual. These agreements are best when formalized in a well-drafted, negotiated, and reviewed contract that protects your rights and interests and shields you from liability whenever possible. While there are many contracts available online, these contain merely generic terms (called “boilerplate”) that will not necessarily address the details of your specific situation. It is essential to have an experienced commercial attorney draft a contract that is specifically tailored to your needs and to review any contract that you are asked to sign.
Even the best-drafted contracts can result in a breach, which is the failure to meet the obligations promised in the contract, or a dispute over the terms of the contract. In such cases, our attorneys can help you negotiate with the other party to come to a mutually beneficial resolution. If you cannot reach an agreement, it may be necessary to file a legal claim and our skilled Commercial Transactions and Litigation lawyers can represent you and guide you through the entire legal process. If you have any type of business dispute, please contact our office to discuss how we can assist you.
One particularly complicated commercial transaction is buying a small business or selling a small business. Business ownership can change for a multitude of reasons though it is always important to cover all of your legal bases to avoid any unnecessary cost or liability. There are many different ways an experienced business lawyer can assist you throughout the process whether you are buying or selling. Some examples include:
Commercial or residential real estate is one of the most significant assets you or your business may own. For this reason, any transaction involving buying real estate or selling real estate should be carefully considered and reviewed. Real estate transactions involve complicated contracts, however, too often, individuals or business owner believe they can handle this kind of transaction on their own. Just as you should not enter into a business contract without careful legal review and guidance, you should not enter into a real estate agreement without a knowledgeable attorney ensuring that your rights are protected. Too many real estate contracts contain potentially harmful provisions that are not readily apparent to a non-legally trained eye. To make sure your real estate transaction goes as smoothly as possible, call our office today for assistance.
