Contracts are some of the most valuable tools business owners have for avoiding disputes, limiting liability, and protecting their company's ideas and information from disclosure to competitors. Because written agreements can play such a large role in a business's success, it's crucial for owners to have at least a basic grasp of contract law. Fortunately, attorney Steve Becker can help.
Having worked as in-house counsel for Fortune 500 companies for more than three decades before starting his own law firm, Becker Law LLC, Steve knows contract law inside and out. He's seen the costly disputes and litigation that can arise when agreements are poorly drafted or insufficiently reviewed—or the parties involved don't understand their rights and responsibilities under the terms of the contract—and he's committed to helping business owners resolve such issues or, ideally, avoid them altogether. That's why he wrote Understanding Contracts e-Guide, now available for free download.
