Texas Business & Contracts (OLD)

If you own or operate a business, you undoubtedly are faced with legal questions or uncertainty from time to time. If you’re ready to start a business, you probably have many legal questions.

Some common questions inlcude:

  • What type of business organization would be best for your business?
  • Do you need written company policies and/or an employee manual?
  • How can you minimize your liability exposure in the event you are sued one day?
  • What type of insurance coverage should you have?
  • Should you create a separate business entity to own your company’s vehicles and equipment?

The business and contracts lawyers at the Law Office of Derek R. Van Gilder are here to help you navigate through legal issues that face business owners and operators everyday. 

As a business owner or operator, you know that contracts–whether oral or written–are absolutely essential. Do you have well-written contracts for all of the essential areas of your business?

The Texas contract attorneys at the Law Office of Derek R. Van Gilder have the experience you need in any type of contract matter. We can draft clear and enforceable contracts for your business transactions, employment agreements, non-disclosure agreements, warranties, and other matters that could otherwise turn into costly litigation.

A clear and effective contract is one of the most important precautions you can take to protect your interests in a sales transaction, contract labor agreement or other agreement in which another party’s failure to keep their promises might potentially cost you a significant amount of money, damage your business reputation, compromise your intellectual property, or cause you other legal problems.

Whether you need a contract prepared or you need a contract reviewed before you sign it, our firm can help you with that. A well-written contract protects all the parties in the transaction, clearly describes each party’s obligations under the contract, and will clearly state what happens if a party breaches the contract.
