My main focus is estate planning and business transactions, but I have had many practice areas throughout my career, including criminal defense and prosecution, civil litigation from neighborhood squabbles to corporate contentions. I have also worked in bankruptcy, family law, collections, employment law, and personal injury. I stand ready to assist in any area to which I feel I can be of service, but will not try to fake it if I do not know the area of law I am being asked to serve in.

Business Legal Questions and Answers

Contract Agreement

Utah

Asked on Jul 29, 2021

Should I sign a contract if I don't understand what it is saying?

Has a contract with someone where if we disagreed we would go to mediation. They refused to go, they offered us a settlement as long as we signed another contract. I don't understand fully what it is saying.

Simon C.

Answered Sep 28, 2021

You should never sign a contract or other legal documents if you do not understand them. Get help and advice from a qualified lawyer before entering into contractual and legal obligations.

Joint Venture Agreement

Texas

Asked on Mar 21, 2023

Can a JV own property?

I am currently in talks with another company to form a joint venture (JV) for a real estate development project. We are planning to pool our resources together to purchase land and build properties. However, I am uncertain if a JV can legally own property or if we would need to form a separate legal entity for the ownership of the real estate. I would appreciate the guidance of a lawyer on this matter.

Jimmy V.

Answered Mar 21, 2023

A joint venture can own property. It's a type of partnership. But in a partnership, each partner is liable for anything the other partner does. You would be much better off setting up as an LLC.

Business Partnership Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Sep 29, 2023

Can I withdraw from a business partnership agreement?

I am currently in a business partnership agreement with a colleague, and I am considering withdrawing from the partnership. We have been in the agreement for over a year and our goals and objectives have changed. I am looking for legal advice on the steps I need to take to withdraw from the agreement, and the potential legal implications of doing so.

N'kia N.

Answered Oct 9, 2023

Below is a general overview of how the process of a partner withdrawing from a partnership commonly plays out: The withdrawing partner gives written notice of withdrawal. The parties obtain business valuations to determine payout terms. The parties execute some type of withdrawal or buyout agreement that states rights, responsibilities, and restrictions (such as non-competition and non-disclosure/confidentiality), and other important terms of the deal. A partner who is considering withdrawing from the partnership should consider consulting with a knowledgeable attorney who can review the Partnership Agreement and the terms of a proposed withdrawal or buyout agreement, and either guide the partner through handling the process without representation or represent the partner through the withdrawal. Additionally, the partner might consider consulting with a tax professional regarding tax liabilities. [It is often beneficial for the partner to seek assistance from an independent attorney or tax professional, rather than one who represents the partnership or another partner.]

Liability Waiver

Texas

Asked on Nov 27, 2023

Is a liability waiver binding on heirs?

I recently inherited a business from a family member and I am looking to create a liability waiver for the business. I want to make sure that the waiver is binding on the heirs of the business in the event that the business is passed down. I want to make sure that any potential liabilities are not passed on to future generations of the family.

J.R. S.

Answered Jan 5, 2024

A liability waiver can indeed be binding on heirs if the language of the waiver expressly includes heirs or assigns. However, the binding nature of a waiver on heirs could be affected by several factors. Administrative regulations such as 1 TAC § 373.209 and statutes like V.T.C.A., Civil Practice & Remedies Code § 71.021 and V.T.C.A., Special Districts Code § 8502.020 stipulate conditions under which heirs can assert claims, which could potentially affect the binding nature of a waiver on heirs. Finally, the enforceability of such waivers can be influenced by whether the instrument is recorded or not, as per V.T.C.A., Property Code § 13.001. In summary, while a liability waiver can be binding on heirs, the enforceability of such waivers can be influenced by various factors, including the specific language of the waiver, the termination of the contract, administrative regulations or statutes, and whether the instrument is recorded or not. I recommend having a discussion with an attorney and have them draft the language to achieve your goal.

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. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
