Negotiating, drafting, reviewing and enforcing contracts

Contracts are the lifeblood of commercial business. Contracts provide the framework through which business relationships are controlled, enabling each of the parties to attain their agreed upon benefits, while providing appropriate protections against violating the settled terms and conditions. In turn, the value of an excellent contract, which has been skilfully negotiated and precisely written, is rarely evident - until one of the parties attempts to breach the contract (with the potential for such a violation having been substantially reduced by the knowledge that any violation will have serious repercussions).

Conversely, when contracts are poorly negotiated and/or written, they can become a source of unending anguish and drain on a business' financial resources. Experienced contract negotiations and drafting will enable you to avoid these disasters, by avoiding the traps and pitfalls that other businesses all too frequently fall prey to. You should always be looking to solidify your business relationships with well-structured contracts, so that you can focus on your core business and not the distractions that arise from disputes that lack a clear contractual formula for resolution.

  Share Purchase Agreement
Contracts should be made specific to the particular circumstances of the business arrangement, as opposed to simply attempting to rely on a generic template that is not designed to advance your company's financial interests, hence the significance of a contract lawyer drafting an asset purchase or share purchase agreement.
Clauses often seen in such contracts might include some variant of:
"On the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, the Vendor hereby covenants and agrees to sell, assign and transfer to the Purchaser at the Closing Date, and the Purchaser hereby covenants and agrees to purchase for the Purchase Price from the Vendor on the Closing Date the Purchased Shares in accordance with Schedule **, all of which shall be free and clear of all Encumbrances of any kind whatsoever other than any escrow requirements of ***, and in full consideration and payment therefor the Purchaser will pay to the Vendor the Purchase Price in accordance with Section ***."
