Contracts are a vital part of any business. Whether it is a purchase or sale order, an offer of employment or a customer waiver and release, the terms of any contract define the nature of the parties' relationship as well as their rights, duties, and obligations, and dictate how any disputes may be resolved. A legal agreement can be used to govern matters as simple as ordering supplies, and as complicated as corporate financing.

Contracts are also likely a part of everyday life for families and individuals. From buying a movie ticket and hailing a taxi to obtaining a mortgage, a wide variety of transactions are matters involving legally-binding agreements.

The Brevard County business lawyers at Cantwell & Goldman, P.A. have significant experience drafting, negotiating, and enforcing contracts. Representing clients throughout the area since 1984, we have the background, skills, and ability to meet all of your contract needs. We are dedicated to negotiating contracts on the best possible terms for our clients, preserving their rights and interests, and standing ready to enforce an agreement via litigation when necessary.

In its simplest form, a contract involves an agreement by two parties in which one offers to do or refrain from doing something in exchange for some form of compensation. Buy a movie ticket and you have agreed to pay the theater operator in exchange for its showing you a particular film. While this basic formula has remained unchanged over centuries of contract law, both the terms and enforceability requirements of a binding legal agreement are often very complex. It is therefore imperative that a person entering a contract consult an experienced lawyer.

At Cantwell & Goldman, P.A., we provide personalized legal services for individuals and businesses throughout the Space Coast. As active members of the local community, we are committed to providing high quality legal services for our friends and neighbors.

Others come back over the years for assistance in meeting all of their legal needs.

Our clients regularly rely on our Florida business attorneys to draft, review, and negotiate a vast range of business agreements, including leases, employment and non-compete contracts, shareholder agreements, and a broad spectrum of other contracts that may affect a business's or individual's interests. We tailor these agreements to a client's particular needs with an eye toward protecting the client's rights and ensuring that the contract will be enforceable in court. Our lawyers also walk clients through the negotiation and drafting processes step by step, explaining the operable terms in everyday language and reviewing all possible options and strategies.
