Santa Rosa Contract Law Attorney

Contract Representation For Northern California Businesses

For many new business owners, or operators of already existing small businesses, one of the most pressing, nagging fears is litigation. If someone brings a contract claim against you, the court costs and legal fees alone could ruin your business. Since contracts are such an integral part of business transactions, it is essential to work with a Santa Rosa contract law attorney to help you avoid litigation through sound legal counsel and drafting for your contract needs.

At The Law Office of Stephen M. Beckwith, we bring more than 20 years of experience serving Northern California clients. We can help you make sure your contracts are drafted in a way that will avoid misunderstanding and minimize the risk of breach for all parties involved, so you will avoid litigation and enjoy the benefits of well-drafted contractual agreements.

In addition to our legal experience, both attorney Stephen M. Beckwith and legal secretary and office administrator Kymm Nicholson have real-world experience as business owners. Attorney Beckwith ran his own cafe for a number of years, and our firm has a wealth of experience dealing with vendors, renegotiating leases and handling a range of other legal matters for restaurateurs in Northern California.

Personalized Representation For Contract Drafting And Review

We handle contract drafting and review for business owners in Northern California. Every business is unique, and no two contracts are the same. We will take the time to understand your individualized objectives, so we can help you obtain the results you need in your contractual agreements. We have experience integrating the specific clauses into our clients' contracts to help them obtain the results they need, including:

  • Length of contract
  • Arbitration or mediation clauses
  • Personal guarantees on contract

ContractsWe draft each contract to the benefit of our client. We can explain the terminology and the consequences of various contractual clauses. We want to make sure your understanding is in sync with the contractual terms. If aspects of the contract seem problematic, we will go back to the negotiating table until we get things right for you.

Contract Disputes

Litigation is costly. When contractual matters come into dispute, we favor mediation, arbitration and other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods. While ADR is generally more effective in terms of time and cost, some cases do require litigation, and we have the experience to litigate your case, if necessary.
