Commercial Contracts and Leases
A lease agreement is a document that is signed by the parties and becomes binding. Claims of fraud, broken contracts, or misrepresentation result in commercial contract disputes that almost always require effective representation. Real estate litigation must be handled by lawyers that understand the proper course of action for the property and case type.
A commercial contract is a legally binding document that puts one party into a binding position either to do something or not to engage in the stated activity. It is used in business and organizations and its key requirements is to ensure that legal arrangements allow full benefits of the contract. The Uniform Commercial Code is the primary authority that governs business transactions and contracts. States also have regulations related to commercial contracts. Under the UCC, we explore the response for resolution or a claim through litigation.
