Ask us what we can do for you. Here are some examples of services our firm can provide:

• Residential and Commercial Real Property Contracts: If you sign a document, you agree to its terms. That is the law, regardless of what you intended. The time to find out what you are getting into is before you sign, not after a problem arises. Our team of experienced attorneys can help you determine your rights and responsibilities regarding key contract clauses. We will also help you develop negotiation strategies that maximize your leverage and return.

• Evaluating franchisor representations or promises: Reliance on unenforceable oral promises is the cause of many serious problems faced by buyers of service station, automotive service, convenience store and fast-food franchises. The time to find out whether what you were told will be enforceable in court is before you make that investment. Carroll Gilbert & Bachor’s seasoned professionals can aid you in making a realistic assessment.

• Advice: Whether negotiating a lease or a purchase and sale agreement and their numerous related documents, advice before you agree to the terms and conditions can save you money and anxiety should a problem arise after execution of the agreements. Over the years our firm has reviewed numerous leases, drafted real property purchase agreements, business purchase and sale agreements, and litigated disagreements over such transactions.

• Ensuring effective risk management: Of course you have to take risks to make money, but the informed businessperson makes sure he or she takes only calculated risks. Good legal advice is a critical ingredient of successful risk management and can be a key factor in maximizing your leverage and your potential return.
