Running a successful business requires the use of successful contracts.
A strong contract will accomplish your goals in a transaction while protecting

a relatively simple company to operate:
Legally enforceable agreements are necessary to hire employees, conduct
intellectual property, and enforce a company’s organizational structure.
Given how pivotal they are to the continued health and liability of your
company, every contract must be carefully written and scrutinized. Chances

Our Charlotte contract attorneys can assist you with:
Employment agreements. Whenever you hire an employee, you should legally define the terms of
the relationship. This includes workplace responsibilities, conditions
of employment, and compensation. Depending on your needs, it can also
include nondisclosure agreements, noncompete clauses (where permitted),
and procedures for dispute resolution.
Independent contractor agreements. In addition to full-time employees, your business may require the services
of individual or organizational independent contractors. These relationships
must be carefully defined to remain in compliance with local and federal
employment law. These contracts must also very specifically and explicitly
define the obligations of the hired party or parties.
Real estate agreements. Your company will likely need some form of office space with which to
conduct a bulk of its centralized business. Some industries may require
even larger spaces for purposes of manufacturing or storage. Commercial
real estate agreements are negotiated and function differently from other
types of real estate and often require the negotiation and review of a
Compliance documentation. Depending on the nature of your company’s field, you will likely
have to file documentation proving your compliance with local, state,
and federal regulations.
Intellectual property protection documents. Your company will need to take proactive steps to protect its proprietary
information. This requires an extensive level of comprehensive documentation.
Purchase and sale agreements. The transfer of business assets from one entity to another is a complex
process that often requires numerous regulatory approvals as well as careful
financial and legal supervision.
