The attorneys at McFerrin & Zayed, PLLC likewise assist businesses with an array of issues involving contractual matters. Unfortunately, many business owners believe retaining an attorney to draft or review a contract is an unnecessary expense and rely, instead, upon their long-standing relationships and a handshake to consummate a deal. Conversely, other entrepreneurs simply modify pre-existing contracts or attempt to draft the contract themselves. But a poorly written contract, or no written contract at all, will inevitably cost you and your business more money at some point.
Ambiguities within a contract often lead to a disagreement between the parties. An ambiguity exists when the language of a contract may be interpreted in more than one way by a reasonable person. Unclear, or ambiguous language, regarding key concepts such as the obligations of each party, the respective rights of each party, events constituting a breach, and remedies for a breach, to name a few, can result in the parties forming different interpretations with respect to the same issue, which may lead to costly contract disputes.

In drafting a well-written, detailed, and customized contract for your business, the law firm of McFerrin & Zayed, PLLC strives to
