My practice involves counseling businesses and individuals on a variety of contracts, such as business formation, technology/IP, real estate, leases, and even domestic relations agreements. Much of my practice is dedicated to litigation. As such, I approach contract and transactional work from a litigation perspective by advising clients of the risks involved in failing to develop proper contracts. It takes more than knowledge of the law to be a good lawyer. A good lawyer is honest and forthcoming with clients and has a counseling ethos. And, to me, a good lawyer stands in the shoes of the client when considering how to best serve that client. Whether my client is a business or an individual, I am passionate about helping my clients understand their rights, responsibilities, risks, and possibilities.

Financial Legal Questions and Answers

Promissory Note

California

Asked on Jun 8, 2023

When to use a promissory note?

I recently started a small business and am in need of a loan to expand operations. I am researching the different types of financing available to me and came across promissory notes. I am unfamiliar with the process and need guidance on when a promissory note is appropriate for my loan.

Russell M.

Answered Jun 30, 2023

I'd be happy to explain what a promissory note is and provide context regarding its use in financing a business, as well as alternatives. A promissory note is a legal document that outlines a borrower's promise to repay a specific amount of money to a lender within a defined period of time. It serves as evidence of a debt and includes details such as the principal amount, interest rate, repayment terms, maturity date, and any additional terms and conditions agreed upon by both parties. Promissory notes are commonly used in business financing to secure loans from individuals, financial institutions, or even other businesses. They are a formal way to document the terms of a loan and provide legal protection to both the borrower and lender. In the context of financing a small business, promissory notes can be a suitable option when: 1. Borrowing from family and friends: If you're seeking funding from personal contacts, a promissory note can formalize the agreement, clarify repayment terms, and protect relationships. 2. Seeking private financing: Promissory notes can be used to secure loans from private investors or other businesses. They offer flexibility in negotiating terms, allowing you to tailor the agreement to your specific needs. 3. Exploring alternative lending options: In some cases, small businesses may face challenges obtaining loans from traditional financial institutions. Promissory notes can be an alternative financing method that appeals to investors looking for higher returns or businesses with unique circumstances. However, it's essential to consider alternative financing options alongside promissory notes. Here are a few alternatives to keep in mind: 1. Bank loans: Traditional bank loans often offer favorable interest rates and longer repayment terms. They may require more documentation and have stricter qualification criteria, but they can be an attractive option for businesses with a solid credit history and established operations. 2. Small Business Administration (SBA) loans: The SBA provides government-backed loans to small businesses. These loans typically offer competitive terms, including longer repayment periods and lower down payments, but they often involve more paperwork and longer approval processes. 3. Equity financing: Instead of borrowing money, some businesses opt to sell equity in their company in exchange for funding. This approach involves giving up a portion of ownership but can provide access to larger amounts of capital and potentially benefit from the expertise of investors. 4. Crowdfunding: Crowdfunding platforms allow businesses to raise funds from a large number of individuals, often in exchange for rewards or equity. It can be a viable option for startups or businesses with unique products or ideas. When considering financing options, it's crucial to assess factors such as the cost of borrowing, repayment terms, the impact on ownership, and the specific needs and goals of the business. Working with a financial advisor can help you evaluate the pros and cons of each option and determine the most suitable approach for your business's financing needs.

Debt Settlement Agreement

Washington

Asked on Jul 30, 2023

When to use a debt settlement agreement?

I have recently been struggling to pay off my credit card debt, and I'm trying to find the best way to settle this debt. I am considering a debt settlement agreement, but I'm not sure when it is appropriate to use one. I understand that a debt settlement agreement is a legally binding agreement between a creditor and a debtor, and I want to know if this is a viable option for my situation.

Merry A.

Answered Aug 25, 2023

I only just saw your question - sorry you have been waiting since July 30, 2023! Whether a settlement agreement is your best choice is very fact-specific. In many situations, it's a good option if you can negotiate a far lower pay-off amount, but in some situations bankruptcy and a "clean slate" is the best option. Many legal servies/legal aid offices may offer free debt assistance -if it's not too late, I suggest that you contact such an office.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch.
