Reliable representation in contract and enforcement issues

Contracts are necessary legal tools for every business, no matter the size or industry. These agreements govern all aspects of business dealings, from employee relationships to interactions with partner businesses. As a leader among Philadelphia business litigation attorneys, attorney van der Veen offers small businesses around the state comprehensive advice and steadfast representation in a variety of contractual matters:

  • Contract drafting—A contract is only effective if it is soundly drafted. Unclear, missing, or inaccurate terms can render a contract invalid or ineffective, and dispute resolution and litigation can be costly. With sophisticated hands-on contract experience, we ensure that your business is equipped with artfully-drafted agreements.
  • Breach of contract and enforcement—Even the most solid contracts are breached. In these instances, small businesses require seasoned legal guidance. Whether pursuing an enforcement action or seeking damages, we have the requisite business litigation experience to navigate your business through important enforcement issues.
  • Intellectual property protections—We have advised numerous Pennsylvania businesses on how to safeguard their trade secrets through contractual agreements. Using employee non-compete clauses, non-disclosure agreements, and other legal tools, our firm’s business litigation team protects what you have worked hard to create.
