Valerie Kramer is an expert business transaction lawyer who takes a personalized approach that focuses on the long-term objectives of our clients.
My clients facing needless litigation would suggest pro-active planning
Contact Mr. Williams personally to discuss your business law needs. Start building your success with the confidence that you are dotting the “I’s” and crossing the “T’s” that many business owners can only wish that they had done correctly at the outset of their business start-up. For Example. If your entire business model revolves around proving a service, do you have a well-engineered contract designed to specifically keep you safe and out of trouble?
San Diego Internet Attorney
Do you promote your business with a website? Do you sell products or services on a website? You should have your customers click and agree to your TOS (“Terms-of-Service” agreement). Most people want what you have to offer and will willingly agree to most any terms you put forth – even if the agreement is weighed heavily in its determination to hold you harmless – as they are not expecting anything to go wrong just like you. But things do go wrong! If you have been in business a while, you know that the nicest client can turn into Dracula in a very short order. The protections a TOS or a primary business contract can mean to you and your business are mind-boggling.
San Diego Small Business Attorney
Every Small Business needs a Lawyer to look over their Exposure Profile
There just is no excuse not to invest some time hammering out the few invaluable legal instruments that every business must have.
Simple Business Example – Do you know that a car stereo installation store that charges $100 on a hand-written Sales & Installation Pad from Office Depot is at huge risk? A couple hours of a lawyer’s time and a week later the New Sales & Installation Pad –while it might look just like the Office Depot pad– is the store’s most POWERFUL ASSET! Now, when the customer agrees to have a stereo installed by signing on the acceptance line is agreeing to both the price AND to the store’s contract and agreement. The new customized form might protect and hold harmless the stereo install owner from claims personal property theft and any stereo or auto damage: during install or in the future!
For instance, a client who calls the police and claims your staff stole a $20,000 diamond tennis bracelet from the glove box; perhaps $400 from a purse; or blamed for a vehicle electrical fire that destroys new Mercedes a week following the install. It’s a simple analogy but an important one. These things happen EVERY DAY. Businesses are always potential targets and are often wrongfully accused. Even if a business does screw up, why leave the potentially awful outcome to a strangers’ whim when you can have your client agree to YOUR PRE-DETERMINED TERMS beforehand? Done smartly and legally, your clients agree upon authorizing you to perform a service that they will NOT hold you responsible for claims of theft; any install damage or resultant damage to their vehicle. They agree to hold harmless – they agree to contact their insurance company. Many a stressed-out client who has passed through my office over the years had “wished” that they would have had the wisdom to build a good contract or a simple cash sales form years before! Unfortunately, most small businesses end up paying dearly, and if they survive their first lawsuit — THEN they can’t wait to get all their contracts and procedures in order. Better to learn from the mistakes of others and get your operation in order from the get-go.
