Contracts made in California are presumed to include an implied-in-law covenant of fair dealing and good faith. This clearly means that each party to a contract agrees to not violate the letter or the spirit of a contract. Although this would seem to be obvious, contracts can be more complicated than the parties anticipated when the intent is obscured by complications that were not anticipated.
Our law firm protects a business or organization from the problems that can give rise to complications and litigation. Courts are burdened with lawsuits involving contract disputes, and most of these could be prevented by appropriate and inclusive contract language. Even contract violations can be resolved without litigation if a party to the contract is willfully violating the contract. Problems arise when the contract language is ambiguous or does not protect against possible complications. Skilled contract negotiation in Orange County will prevent these problems.

A good written contract includes the exchanges to be made by the parties and the foreseeable complications that might arise from these exchanges. Contract law requires that contracts be written in language that can be universally interpreted by businesses, attorneys and the courts. The specificity this language provides will prevent many complications and disputes. Our attorneys are skilled and experienced in developing contracts with the proper language. They understand that a good written contract will specify which party has the responsibility for resolving any complication. Of course, a contract should also cover the terms that make the contract applicable to all parties.
