Breach of Contract

A breach of contract occurs when a party fails to fulfill its duties under that contract's agreements. Sofer Law can help you choose the appropriate defenses to breach of contract if you have been accused of violating yours. Sofer Law can defend you if you have signed a contract against your will.

Business Disputes

Business disputes often arise from disagreements over contract terms, but they may also deal with billing, business practices, and other issues. If you have a business dispute that needs rapid resolution-especially if your finances or reputation are at stake-you should speak with us immediately to determine your next steps.

Buying and Selling a Business

The dual processes of buying and selling a business can be complex, but they aren't without reward. Purchasing an existing business means purchasing a pre-existing client base, staff, patents, and more-which can be a great financial advantage over starting your own business. Practiced business lawyers can also assist you in the process of selling or closing your business.

Contract Drafting and Review

Contract drafting and review is a vital to avoiding a breach of contract later on, making the duties of both parties and the terms of a contract clear from the beginning. Sofer Law can offer valuable insight when drafting your contract and help you determine whether accepting an offer is in your best interest.

Corporations, LLCs, Partnerships, etc.

Corporations, LLCs, partnerships, etc. are all different types of business management forms.

Partnerships divide business management between partners, and partnership lawyers divide partnerships into "general" and "limited" partnerships. Limited Liability Company (LLC) lawyers can walk you through setting up management that limits partner liability for possible damages. Corporations act as a single entity regardless of the number of individual shareholders. There are several types of corporations.

Entertainment Law

Entertainment law mingles with intellectual property law, covering entertainment industry trademarks and copyrights. Business lawyers become involved in entertainment law at many points where contracts are involved, like when an artist is negotiating a record deal.
