Employment Law

employment lawAll businesses deal with employment issues. Even if you are the only employee. Want advice on how to handle a growing workforce? Or, perhaps, reducing one? Need employment policies tailored to fit your business and its culture? Human resources is an important and complicated area, rife with contention and risk.

Contracts & Leasing

contracts and leasingIf you are in business, you deal with contracts. In most instances, the obligations you are under and the relationships you have with clients, customers, vendors and others are governed by the law of contracts. Negotiating and drafting an agreement well is the best preventative measure to avoid problems. If a problem does arise, a well-drafted contract will put you in a position of power in the ensuing dispute. Pay attention to the details up front and you may save a great deal of time and money down the road.

A lease, being a particular type of contract, requires a skilled drafter to provide for the many peculiar circumstances and special laws that apply to both residential and commercial leasing. Whether it is for real estate or equipment, a lease is the most important document in how that property is handled by the owner and the lessee. Make sure that it provides protection for you, and reflects accurately the agreement you made. Having years of experience in residential and commercial leasing, Peter Glazer brings his perspective and knowledge to any stage of a leasing relationship. Take advantage of it.
