New Jersey Contract Review and Negotiation Attorney
Contracts dictate the terms of virtually every action, policy, and decision that occurs at any place of business, with significant impacts on employers and employees alike. Regardless of whether a business entity is large or small, brand new or firmly established, structured as a corporation or limited liability company (LLC), contracts inevitably impact employee compensation, termination, vacation time, sick leave, severance pay, intellectual property, competition with other businesses, litigation, arbitration, and countless other critical matters.
Regardless of your position at the company you work for, your level of skill, or the length of time you have worked at the company, it is of the utmost importance that an experienced contract review attorney assesses every clause and provision before you sign an agreement or accept an offer. The subtlest, least noticeable insertion or omission of a word can have far-reaching consequences for the employee – and not always with the anticipated or desired outcome. Hiring a knowledgeable employment law attorney to review each contract and agreement you are offered can help to ensure that you are never surprised by burdensome, unforeseen consequences. Your attorney can review each contract word by word and line by line, scrutinizing the tiniest details, to make sure that your rights will not be compromised, nor will your opportunities be restricted.
If your employer has requested that you agree to a contract of any kind, be sure to review its provisions with an experienced attorney before you accept its terms.

Types of Business Contracts Our Attorneys Draft, Review, and Negotiate
Business and employment contracts are as varied as the issues they address. A single contract can contain dozens if not hundreds of clauses, often written in rather technical language that may pose a barrier to clear understanding. This can make it challenging or impossible to fully appreciate the potential consequences of signing a document. You could accidentally sign a contract that strips you of important legal rights, or prevents you from seizing valuable career opportunities in the future. For these reasons, it is simply not in your best interests to agree to an employment contract before hiring an attorney to evaluate its terms.
