CONTRACT DRAFTING

50% of a contract is written; the other fifty is implied. 

Knowing "which half is which" determines the success of each deal.

We design transaction tools.

We don't just sell contracts - we design them. With thousands of successful business transactions completed, certain truths became evident: Contracts are more than just a backup plan.

They make or break deals. They preserve revenue. They serve as the first line of defense in a dispute. Even when they are not written, legal principles of contracting still apply. Whether you are in the early stages of your business or a seasoned entrepreneur, a strong business agreement can provide your team (and clients) with the structure necessary for a good working relationship.

 

Why? Because human nature ultimately kicks in; and if you don't have a written protocol for the "WHAT IF's" of a transaction - the situation can quickly get out of hand. For example:

  • What happens to the partial products/services that are "in process"?

  • When is it appropriate to issue a refund?

  • Who is responsible for regulatory compliance? 

  • Can you subcontract? 

  • What if the underlying assumptions change? 

  • Who pays for unexpected costs? 

  • What if the milestone schedule is not satisfied? 

  • What if there are hidden defects? 

  • This list goes on...

Chances are, if you are a consultant or providing specialized services, you know the technical side of the house very well. You can sell and explain to clients what you do and why they need it. But do you have the legal infrastructure behind you to back up the deliverables? Are you protected if the client one day changes their mind? 

 

We help business owners design contracting tools that integrate their specialties with legal and compliance principles. We also make it a point to help you understand WHY these principles are important in your business model, and HOW they can be leveraged to strengthen your operations and revenue. 

Industries We Serve

As a transactional law firm, we see deals of every shape and size, working through contracts of all levels and complexity.  This constant exposure to transactions gives us unique insights and perspective. For us, each deal is unique: every owner, buyer, seller, landlord, tenant, investor, and entrepreneur has their own style. But what remains the same are the contracting best practices that make a deal better. 

JuncuLegal can develop and customize agreements to support nearly any transaction. 

To help our clients secure more business, and reduce the likelihood of costly litigation, we have designed and implemented agreements that span dozens of industries. 

As with any good transaction, it is imperative that key terms be documented precisely and clearly.  If negotiation is not your strength, we can help you strategize how to structure your offer and document current understandings. Remember: when a deal goes awry, your contract may be the first (and last)  word.  Don't leave your success to chance.

Legal, Never Generic, Big on Value  

When it comes to contracts, it's easy to get overwhelmed: there are seemingly endless options and templates. But when it comes to business and transactions, generic is generally not great. Of course, many deals have similar elements - a start date, end date, a price. But should an independent contractor helping your IT consultancy be treated (legally) the same as your retail sales associate? Of course not. 

The value of hiring JuncuLegal is that we don't just provide you with a template and wish you good luck. We actually never do this. We get to know every client, every business, and every transaction. Then we decide - based on the complexity of the issues - what transaction tools and contracts are appropriate. (For example, we have 8-10 types of Confidentiality Agreements, each for a different type of engagement.)  We then co-build these with your feedback in mind, and review each agreement with you when we finish. This way, you understand the WHY behind your contract terms, and have more negotiating power when deals don't work out as planned. And when they do - your clients and industry partners respect you more for it. 

By providing context and discussing the background of similar transactions, we help you understand which route is best for your business. And of course - because we are your attorney, everything is confidential

Together, we make business better. ​
