Contracts and Business Agreements in Utah

Utah business owners need to pay close attention to the details of every contract they enter into. Contracts often contain provisions concerning the law to be applied to the transaction, whether attorney’s fees and legal expenses are allowed in the event of a dispute, such as over the terms or performance of a contract, and even where a lawsuit can be filed. The agreement may even prevent the filing of a lawsuit and require arbitration as the only means to resolve disputes.  Before you or your business enters into any contractual agreement, we will draft or review and suggest changes to your contracts to better define and protect your business objectives.
