Litigation Legal Questions and Answers


Commercial Lease


Asked on Apr 14, 2023

What's the survival clause in a commercial lease?

I am looking to enter into a commercial lease for my new business. I am unfamiliar with the terms of a commercial lease, and am particularly interested in understanding the survival clause. This clause is important to me because I want to make sure I am fully aware of my rights and responsibilities as a tenant. I need to know what is expected of me should the lease be terminated prematurely.

Curt L.

Answered Apr 28, 2023

A survival clause is fairly standard in a lease. It extends the effectiveness of certain provisions, such as party representations, warranties, promises, and covenants beyond the expiration or termination of the lease, but not beyond the legally prescribed statute of limitations. For example, If you make a fraudulent representation in a 1-year lease, the other party to the lease who is damaged by your fraud could still sue you for that fraud even after the end of the 1-year lease.

Settlement Agreement


Asked on Dec 16, 2023

Can settlement agreement details be public?

I recently entered into a settlement agreement with another party and am concerned about the details of the agreement being made public. I am worried that the agreement may contain sensitive information that could be detrimental to my reputation or interests if it were to be shared publicly. I am looking for guidance on the legal implications of the settlement agreement being made public and what, if anything, I can do to protect myself in this situation.

J.R. S.

Answered Jan 5, 2024

Yes, details of a settlement agreement can be made public, especially when a governmental body is involved due to the Public Information or Open Records Act. This act states that the public has a right to access information on government affairs and official acts of public officials and employees unless expressly excepted. However, there are exceptions to this general rule. For instance, disclosure of personnel information that would "constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy" is excepted. This is not to say that all settlement agreements are public. In some cases, parties to a settlement agreement may choose to include confidentiality clauses, which prevent the details of the settlement from being disclosed to the public or any third party. The legal rule for agreements between attorneys or parties touching any suit pending is that they will not be enforced unless they are in writing, signed and filed with the papers as part of the record, or unless they are made in open court and entered of record.

Employment Contract


Asked on Apr 23, 2023

What's the termination clause in an employment contract?

I recently accepted a position at a company and they have given me an employment contract to review. I have been reading through the contract and noticed a section regarding termination. However, I am not sure what the termination clause in the contract states and I am hoping to get some clarification from a lawyer. I want to make sure that I understand my rights and obligations before signing the contract.

Curt L.

Answered Apr 28, 2023

Most employment contracts contain (1) termination for cause, and/or (2) termination without cause (also known as at-will employment relationship).

Equipment Purchase Agreement


Asked on Apr 13, 2022

I need help and justice because the manufacturing company and the vendor company sold me a bad CT scan machine for 67000$ and the machine always stops in between patients and unpredictable and it’s still not working now - I have spent thousands of $$ on repairs and waranties - they are abusing me- I don’t want any other dentist to be abused like this - I need a lawyer with a good heart to help me who isnot money oriented

I need to ask them for refund of half the price of the machine or replace me with a machine which will not give me and my team any psychological stresses for next 5 years - if they don’t want to settle out then we need to go to court and they need to pay my lawyer fees and I won’t be responsible for any of their lawyer fees at any occasion as there will be no justice served - if They lobby and I end up losing more money- most lawyers are expensive and I don’t want to spend for their lawyer- also as I have been cheated with a broken and defective machine and they need to pay for Rejuveneation fees as this machine breakdown has caused me and my team psychological and patient issues too

Kelvin R.

Answered Apr 15, 2022

You have raise serious concerns involving rights under both your transaction documents and Texas law related to your CT scan machine purchase and performance. Texas law protects buyers of goods under well-established warranty theories as well as provisions of the Business & Commerce Code (including prohibitions against deceptive trade practices). You likely have a purchase agreement, guaranty agreement and or a warranty agreement. These are the minimum documents you should review closely to determine if the seller's actions violate terms of any (or all) of these agreements. A good lawyer can help you with your review and analysis. While I think I know what your concern may be in your request for "lawyer with a good heart" who "is not money oriented", lawyers are like any other profession, some better then others, some good and some not as good and attorney fees vary. I suggest you locate one that you believe is ethical and who will aggressively pursue your interest. If so, you will likely find value in the services provided.
