Business relationships and promises people make to each other are all governed by contracts. Although some oral contracts are legally binding, in order to protect yourself and your business, written contracts drafted by an experienced attorney can help prevent problems before they occur. By the same token, before signing a contract offered to you by a person or business, our Minnesota contract lawyers at Speeter & Johnson can help.

Contract review

There will be times in your business or personal life when someone else presents you with an already drafted contract and asks you to sign it. Our Minnesota contract attorneys have the experience you need to review all types of contacts and determine if it is in your best interest to sign the contract. If any changes or additions need to be made, we know how to negotiate on your behalf in order to effectuate the changes that need to be made.

Contract litigation

No matter how carefully contracts are drafted, there may come a time when there is a dispute over the meaning of its terms. On other occasions, one party may have breached the contract by failing to fulfill his or her obligations under the contract. We at Speeter & Johnson, located in Minneapolis, will evaluate all the facts and work to resolve the dispute to your advantage.

If negotiation or mediation do not resolve the dispute, we will diligently prepare the case for trial. We have experience both defending those who have allegedly breached a contract as well as pursuing litigation against those who have breached.

We provide quality and cost-effective legal services taking into account each and every client’s unique situation. We give you the personal attention you need and listen to your concerns. We will assist you whether you need a contract drafted, a contract evaluated, or need to pursue or defend a breach of contract issue.
