Business Law

When it comes to matters of business law, you can never be too careful when ensuring that every last detail is accounted for. Whether you're a small business owner or a large corporation, it's always important to have an experienced business law attorney on your side whenever legal issues arise. That's why I've been working with individual entrepreneurs and business owners of companies big and small across the Austin area for over a decade. I strive to provide the support they need through whatever legal challenges their business is facing.

Texas Business Law

In the state of Texas, businesses are regulated at the local, state, and federal level, meaning that your business can be affected by a variety of different laws that govern how you operate and the protections that are provided to both you and your employees.

These laws can cover a long list of things from restrictions on deceptive business practices and environmental regulations to contracts and insurance liability. Considering how complex many of these issues can be, I try to stress to all of my clients the importance of having an experienced business law attorney working for you to ensure that the needs of you and your business are taken care of. After all, you've worked hard to get where you are. You can't afford to risk everything you've achieved up to this point by facing a legal battle on your own.

If you or someone you know is facing a difficult legal issue, it's not only important to have a skilled business law attorney in your corner, it's also important to have a basic understanding of some of the key legal issues that relate to your business so you can make sure you're in a position to handle whatever challenges come your way. At my firm, we specialize in debt settlement, business contract reviews, and breach-of-contract law to help take care of clients involved in various disputes and partnership agreements.

Breach of Contract Law

Anyone who has experience running a business knows that entering into an employment or business contract is an extremely important part of the business — but what happens when one of the parties you enter into a contract with decides not to hold up their end of the agreement? These situations are typically referred to as a breach of contract, and as a business owner, you may be entitled to pursue and recover damages when the other party doesn't fulfill their end of the agreement.

In order for you to successfully prove your breach of contract claim, there are a few things that you will have to show in order to validate the contract and prove that the other party did not hold up their end of the bargain. In the state of Texas, the court will typically require that all valid contracts contain the following:

  • An official offer
  • An acceptance in strict compliance with the terms of that offer
  • A meeting of the minds
  • Some type of communication that shows that each party has agreed to the terms of the agreement
  • The execution and delivery of the contract with the intent that it become mutual and binding for both parties.

In essence, these tenets show that two parties have come together, established terms for an agreement, agreed on said terms, and planned to follow through to meet those terms. Once you are able to prove that this valid contract exists between you and another party, you can move into the phase of proving that there was a breach of contract. It's also important to note that in the state of Texas, there is a statute of limitations on the amount of time you have to file a breach of contract claim. The Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code states that individuals must file their breach of contract claim within four years from the date the breach occurred. Otherwise, you will forfeit your right to file a claim.

Ultimately, this is why it's important that you start the process of pursuing legal recourse as early as possible.
