Looking for Affordable Advice on Business Law Matters?
Griffin, Georgia Law Firm Provides Legal Advice Without the High Retainer
Are you thinking of forming a partnership or corporation but don’t know how to set it up? Did you receive a cease-and-desist letter but don’t know how to respond? Have you ever reviewed a contract or some other business document (or tried to create one) and thought, “Boy, wouldn’t it be nice to have an attorney look this over and make sure I’m reading it the way it’s supposed to be interpreted? Too bad lawyers are so expensive.”
Well, we’re not. If you don’t feel qualified to form a business or create, review, or interpret a legal document on your own, but don’t need to retain a huge, multimillion dollar law firm either, we fill in that gap for you. Here are some of the business law-related services that Dutton & Dutton, Attorneys at Law provides:
Cease-and-desist letter responses
Although both a cease-and desist letter and a cease-and-desist order demand that the recipient stop a certain activity, there are significant difference between the two. A cease-and-desist letter, which is not enforceable in court, is sent by an individual or their attorney, while a cease order is an enforceable document issued by an administrative agency. We’ll help you determine which one you have received and help you write your response.
Employment contract assessment
Most employment relationships in Georgia are “at will,” meaning employment can end at any time for any reason, as long as the reason is not illegal. However, some companies enter into employment contracts with certain employees, particularly executives. These contracts typically provide the terms of the employment and may include provisions regarding restrictive covenants, commissions and bonuses, and the conditions under which the employment may be terminated. Our attorneys will thoroughly review your employment contract before you sign to ensure that your civil rights are protected.
Non-disclosure agreement review
Georgia non-disclosure agreements (NDAs), also known as confidentiality or not to compete agreements, must be drafted according to state law to be enforceable. While these agreements allow business owners to benefit from the time and money it takes to train an employee, they cannot take away someone’s livelihood. At Dutton & Dutton, Attorneys at Law, we will give you solid legal advice regarding your rights and responsibilities under the NDA you are being asked to sign.
Distribution agreement analysis
A distribution agreement is a contract between a company with products to sell and another company that sells the products. If you are considering entering into a distribution agreement, talk to us first – we will give attention to even the smallest details in the agreement, offer our informed insight, and work hard to protect you from future litigation that sometimes happens because of misinterpretation and misunderstandings.
We’re fast, thorough, and have been known to save our clients thousands of dollars, just by adding a few tweaks here and there. It’s easy – if you know how to do it or enlist the help of someone who does.
