Business Contract Law

Legal representation and analysis is important in generating, interpreting and enforcing contracts. "Standard" contracts usually protect only the party who created the contract. It is dangerous to sign anything without having your lawyer review it. Laws governing business relationships are increasingly complex. Forms you have used for years may not protect you today.

When things go wrong, it is essential for you to document your side of the story through contracts, witnesses, videos and samples. The Showalter Law Firm can help you analyze, organize and present the facts needed to protect your interests in simple and complex business disputes.
