Business Contract Lawyer: How to Find the Right One

business contract lawyerAre you looking for a business contract lawyer? Then you need to understand there are two different types of attorneys to consider.

Two Business Contract Lawyer Types

Do you want to have a contract prepared, negotiated, reviewed, or revised? You’ll want an attorney who focuses on business transactions.

But, if you’re in a dispute over an existing contract, you should retain a business litigator. This is true whether your dispute will end up in a lawsuit.

At our law firm, we focus on business transactions rather than disputes. So, if you’re fighting with someone over performance of an existing agreement, chances are you’ll want to look elsewhere for business legal help.

What if you need an experienced business contract lawyer to…

  • review an agreement;
  • prepare/negotiate a new contract; or
  • revise an existing agreement?

That’s the type of work we do.

Avoid the Generalist Attorney

There’s a third type of lawyer that you need to be wary of. This shady type claims they can do anything — criminal defense, personal injury, estate planning, and business contracts. They’re a jack-of-all-trades.

Yet the law has become so specialized it’s impossible to master everything. Don’t get fooled by someone who claims they can do it all.

After all, you wouldn’t hire a family medicine doctor to perform open heart surgery. You’d get a heart surgeon.

So, get the right professional for the work you need done. This means either (1) a business transactional attorney or (2) a business trial lawyer.
