In business transaction law, how can I protect my contracts?

The contracts that New Jersey business owners enter into each day vary as greatly as the purposes and products offered by those businesses. Between employment contracts, vender agreements, licensing contracts and many others, a single business can be subject to dozens of agreements just to keep its doors open. With so many agreements in play at once it is not uncommon for disputes to arise between businesses and their contractual associations.

Differences in contractual interpretation lead to lawsuits

Each day businesses all across New Jersey make contracts with new partners, venders and other business entities. Those contracts spell out the details that the contracting parties agreed to before putting themselves on the line for any damages the other parties may experience in the event of breaches. Unfortunately, even at the time of contracting some parties both read the same agreement and interpret the terms in very different ways.

When a New Jersey resident passes away, many parties can have interests in the disposition of that decedent's possessions.

Whether he has a properly formed estate administration plan can weigh heavily into whether his final wishes are granted.

How is due diligence defined during a business transaction?

New Jersey business people are encouraged to use due diligence when purchasing assets and new organizations. However, some may wonder exactly what due diligence really means.
