Honolulu Business Contract Information

Are You Entering Into a Business Contract?

If you're thinking about entering into a business contract or engaging in a transaction for goods and services, it is important that you have a Honolulu business contract attorney review your contract. Business contract attorneys have experience helping businesses review, revise, and negotiate contracts and help protect businesses prior to beginning their work.

What Business Contracts Are Used For

Business Contracts are used during almost every important decision a business will make, from buying or selling a business to purchasing of supplies and equipment. Contracts are also used for employing staff and contracting with freelancers. No matter what the reason for creating a contract in a business environment, an attorney can help make sure the contract is binding.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney's experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney's track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.

Statute - Refers to a law created by a legislative body. For example, the laws enacted by Congress are statutes.

Subject matter jurisdiction - Requirement that a particular court have authority to hear the claim based on the specific type of issue brought to the court. For example, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court only has subject matter jurisdiction over bankruptcy filings, therefore it does not have the authority to render binding judgment over other types of cases, such as divorce.
