Know Your Rights and Obligations
Preparing and negotiating well thought out contracts, employee agreements, shareholder agreements and buy-out agreements is the key to understanding your rights and obligation with respect to any commercial matter. Anticipating the beginning, middle and end of business relationships and transactions will help you to avoid expensive and time consuming litigation.
Documentation plays a crucial part in any litigation. In some cases, evidencing agreements, transactions, modifications and payments can create a defense to potential claims. Once a law suit is commenced, discovery can be an endless and expensive process. All businesses need to anticipate the need to have comprehensive financial information to support compliance with contracts and agreements. A background in tax, accounting and legal matters is necessary to address the evidentiary issues. We can assist you in determining your need to document all of your commercial activities.
Our Legal Practice
We represent a range of clients from individuals to privately-held companies. Our efforts have resulted in successfully bringing a resolution to many cases either by judgment or settlement. Some cases have included but are not limited to contract disputes, real estate partition actions, employee and employer disputes, union benefits and prevailing wage matters, business torts, estates and trusts and title disputes. It is always prudent to attempt to resolve matters out of Court. However, we can assist you in filing and defending lawsuits that would impact your business enterprise.
Representing our clients’ interests both in court and out requires an in-depth legal knowledge and a commitment to cost-effective and innovative solutions. The Law Offices of Dewey Golkin has extensive corporate litigation experience in both State and Federal matters. We know what is important in the courtroom and as a result can provide the most effective and efficient strategies for your case. We advise our clients realistically as it pertains to pretrial negotiations, and the strengths or weaknesses of your case.
