Lawyer Assists with Contract Matters in Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex Counties

Ocean Township firm represents clients during negotiations and disputes

Favorable contracts form the cornerstone of most businesses, and so every aspect of a legal agreement can benefit from the close attention of a knowledgeable attorney. The Law Office of Edmund F. Fitterer, Jr. in Ocean Township advises New Jersey clients on the drafting, review, negotiation and enforcement of all types of contracts. Across the Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex Counties area, I take on a full range of contract law matters on behalf of businesses and individuals. 

Contracts between businesses

While every business contract includes certain elements, such as an exchange of promises and consideration, there are different types of agreements. You can rely on my firm for comprehensive legal support for any type of contractual matter, including agreements related to:

  • Purchase and sale of a business
  • Merger of two companies
  • Vendor contracts
  • Deals between a supplier and a customer
  • Franchisor-franchisee relationship

Whatever your particular needs, I will create an agreement that safeguards your interests and clearly outlines each side’s rights and obligations. 

Employee agreements

Companies often prepare agreements that formalize and clarify employer-employee relationships. Whether you require a general employment contract or one designed for a specific employee or job, my firm can prepare a clear, enforceable document. Employment agreements also can serve to protect confidential information that help companies maintain their competitive edge. I work with clients on the development of restrictive covenants and confidentiality agreements that prevent current and former workers from misusing a company’s intellectual property for their own purposes. If you are concerned about someone leaving your business and taking your customers or key employees, I can advise on New Jersey law governing noncompete and non-solicitation agreements. 

Attorney protects clients’ interests during transactions and disputes

Whether a contract addresses a one-time transaction or an ongoing relationship between the parties, extra effort during the formation process reduces the likelihood of problems later on. You never know what part of an agreement might lead to a conflict, so no term should ever be treated as mere “fine print.” I take great care with each provision in a contract so that you will not be unpleasantly surprised by an unfavorable term in the future. Should a breach-of-contract claim arise, my firm has as a long track record of successfully handling business disputes and other types of civil litigation. 

Residential and commercial real estate contracts

Contracts that govern residential and commercial real estate transactions must be handled with the utmost care. For more than 20 years, I have drafted and reviewed purchase and sale agreements, as well as highly complex leases. Parties to property deals often later regret an unfavorable contract term that they missed or language that is open to multiple interpretations. When you work with my firm, you can be confident we will provide an agreement that safeguards your interests and provides clear guidance on payment, scheduling and other necessary components.
