For businesses in New Canaan and Norwalk, contracts are a part of everyday life. While routine transactions frequently take place based on assumptions and past practice, doing so with larger and more complex business dealings can be a prelude to disaster. Conversely, clear and comprehensive contracts help avoid business disputes and provide a framework for resolution when they do occur.
With two decades of business law experience, including representing major companies at a large Wall Street firm and assisting local companies through several Fairfield County firms, the Law Office of Ann Halan Brickley, LLC is poised to help business owners in New Canaan, Norwalk and elsewhere in Connecticut address contractual issues in a practical and effective manner.
The most common cause of business disputes is simple misunderstanding. Most business owners in Connecticut are honest people who meet their obligations. Problems arise, however, when it becomes unclear just what those obligations are. Two perfectly reasonable people can look at the same situation or contract clause and reach two differing conclusions about what it means. And as the quality of a contract decreases, this result becomes increasingly likely.
By taking the time to understand the substance of the clients’ business negotiations and then memorializing that substance in a clear and comprehensive document, a New Canaan contract attorney in Connecticut can help businesses avoid this result and all the expenses, delays and hard feelings it can bring.
Even under the best contracts, difficult disputes still can occur. Without proper management, these disagreements can delay projects and sour previously harmonious and mutually beneficial business relationships. In these cases, we rely on our extensive knowledge of Connecticut business law — and on our New Canaan business lawyer's practical experience with local business practices in New Canaan, Norwalk, and other surrounding areas — to offer compelling arguments for contractual interpretations that are favorable to our clients.
We aggressively negotiate on behalf of our clients to resolve contractual disputes quickly, cost-effectively and favorably and provide our clients with a realistic assessment of the cost and utility of litigation to resolve these types of matters. We understand that practicality is everything for businesses and always plan our negotiation and litigation strategies with our clients’ goals, expectations and resources as our primary consideration.
Our team at the Law Office of Ann Halan Brickley, LLC helps businesses throughout Connecticut manage their contractual relations and resolve disputes before they get out of control. Serving clients throughout Fairfield County, including Norwalk, New Canaan, Darien, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Redding, Stamford, and Ridgefield, our firm offers evening and weekend appointments and ample free parking.
