Business Contract Lawyers:
How Can They Help?

Business Contract Lawyers

Whether you have just started your business or have been in operation for many years, working with a lawyer to draft and review your contracts is critical. When a well-trained and experienced lawyer handles your contract needs, they ensure that you and your business are protected. While their fees may feel like just another expense, their work will ultimately save you money and headaches down the road. Here are just a few of the ways they can help you.

Contract Lawyers Draft Contracts That Protect You

What contracts does your business need? Chances are you can come up with a few, even a handful, off the top of your head. Yet the truth is that there are many more you need to make sure you are covered. Contract lawyers both understand which contracts your company needs and how to draft them so that any potential loopholes are closed. While there are plenty of templates online, only a contract lawyer near you will be able to tailor the language to make agreements iron-clad.

Contract Lawyers Ensure Your Contracts Are on the Right Side of the Law

Here is another issue with drafting on your own or using a template: legal language is tricky, and laws are constantly changing. While you can spend hours Googling the laws that apply to a specific type of contract in your state, deciphering legalese takes years of training. Not to mention that the laws you are reading about could have changed. A contract lawyer near you will ensure that your contracts are perfectly aligned with federal, state, and local laws, protecting you should a dispute arise.

Contract Lawyers Assist With Disputes and Enforcement

Speaking of disputes, if you work with a contract lawyer, they can help you navigate this, as well as legal enforcement of your contracts. Even when your agreements are iron-clad, there is the chance that the other party will either attempt to take legal action or put you in a position where you need to in order to enforce the contract. The lawyer who drafts your agreement can assess you with both of these, making the process less stressful and much more likely to come out in your favor.

When Having a Contract Lawyer Is a Must

In truth, if you own a business, working with a contract lawyer near you is always a must. At the same time, it can be hard to admit that to yourself, knowing that paying for a lawyer will cut into your bottom line, even if it saves it in the end. Understand that every time you sign a business contract or give one to someone else, it must be reviewed by an attorney beforehand.

This does not mean you need to have a lawyer on staff or retain one to work for you, especially if your business is small and contracts are few and far between. It is perfectly acceptable to work with a contract attorney near you on an as-needed basis.

Managing Director & Principal

I am a first generation Russian immigrant, a techie, a real estate investor, an entrepreneur and even a bit of a cook. Having emigrated from the Soviet Union in 1989 and having lived in four different countries within that year, I grew up quickly. In fact, I ran my first business in Italy, at the age of 8. More recently, I've been a manager and regional trainer of an automotive chain, and then CEO of an IT company and a financial management company. Then I became a lawyer... My life experiences have certainly helped me understand different mentalities, cultures and points of view, making me an effective advocate for quite a few complex issues... My business experiences have allowed me to offer more than the average commercial lawyer, as I can understand my client's position from a businessman's, rather than a lawyer's, point of view... Since 2008, I've worked as an associate in a boutique firm, ran a solo practice, been managing director of a small 3 attorney firm and then returned to solo practice. My firm now focuses on commercial and real estate matters and is equally split between litigation and transactions. In my spare time, I am highly active with my local Rotary Club, as well as my Rotary District. As of July 1, 2018, I am the President of my Rotary Club, Chair of the IT Committee for the Rotary District, Member of the Rotary District PR Committee, member of the Rotary District Conference Committee and the Conference Registrar. I am also the Rotarian Advisor to the Kings Park High School Interact Club, and am the Attorney Coach of the Ezra Academy High School Mock Trial Team, run as part of the New York State Bar Association's Youth & Citizenship Initiatives. I volunteer my time to sit on three 501(c)(3) non-profit boards, including a domestic violence shelter network called Brighter Tomorrows (Secretary of the Board), a school safety organization known as Safe Halls (President of the Board) and a community improvement charity known as the Commack-Kings Park Charitable Fund (President of the Board). I'm also an avid alpine skier, ice skater, pool volleyball player and swimmer. If there's any time left, I enjoy a good night at the theater and a good roasted duck!
