Contract Review

Contract Review and Litigation

One of the most important things that a person or business can do to protect themselves from future disputes is to have an attorney review all contracts before they are used or signed. Contracts include all agreements such as leases, buy-sell agreements, franchise agreements, purchase agreements, construction contracts, employment agreements, non-compete agreements and all other agreements that contain a promise to perform, to refrain from performing or to pay money. Small changes in contract language can make big differences when disputes arise. The cost of a contract review can save you much money and aggravation should a future dispute arise.

DeWitt Law Firm, P.A. has experience in contract review as well as in commercial litigation; this means that we can assess the terms of your contract with an eye to potential areas of conflict. The number of contracts we have drafted, reviewed and litigated allows us to review your contract knowing the many potential problem areas. We are also familiar with how the courts have interpreted various contract provisions in the State of Florida and can advise you of the meaning of these types of clauses. We can also advise you of clauses that are particularly important for you to have in your contracts if you are a business.

The adage that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is particularly applicable to contract reviews. Please have an attorney review all contracts before you use or sign them.
