Some contracts in business can be set up for repeated uses

It is common sense that a business owner in Oregon should have a battery of business agreements to use for various situations that come up in the course of doing business. Contracts are something in which an experienced business law attorney excels. Whenever possible, obtain the attorney's expertise when attempting to draft agreements in the business. After all, the professional processing of business transactions is a win-win proposition which leads logically to increased business for the company.

Contracts fail to keep businesses fully informed of their duties

The courts in Oregon are kept busy with a wide variety of contract disputes between business entities. One type of dispute involving contracts is over royalty payments. Generally, when one business provides a product for promotion and sale to another company, the first business is entitled to a royalty on the sales of those products by the second business.

Contracts are necessary between influencers and businesses

Traditional mass marketing tools are being bypassed to some extent in Oregon and nationwide with respect to business marketing trends. The social medial platforms, with their increasingly sophisticated methods of digital marketing, are becoming more popular and more prominently used. With this trend, it is necessary for companies to consult with experienced business law and ecommerce attorneys to assure that the relationships with the so-called influencers are governed by secure, protective legal contracts.

Contracts can provide for arbitration of workers' disputes

The validity and enforcement of arbitration clauses in contracts has been a volatile issue in business litigation courts in Oregon and the rest of the country. Such clauses come up in a number of contexts. Some are inserted in credit card contracts to compel consumers to arbitrate disputes rather than sue the company. They exist widely in contracts between businesses, calling for arbitration instead of litigation.

Contracts disputes over research mice are going to arbitration

Oregon is a state where research facilities engage in a wide variety of scientific inquiries. Many medical research projects traditionally involve the use of mice as subjects. According to the plaintiff in a federal district court case, only certain very special mice should be used so that the research breakthroughs will continue to maintain their integrity and reliability. The case is about contracts between research labs and the alleged attempt by one party to breach provisions that preclude the sale of the purchased mice to third parties.

Kalanick signs contracts to divest a large chunk of Uber stock

Business law attorneys in Oregon may often be called on to process sales transactions for the transfer of large blocks of corporate shares in private or public companies. Such transactions may require various contracts and financing terms that experienced professionals will prepare and process. There are countless reasons why an investor or even a high-placed officer will want to sell all or part of his or her stock shares in the company.  

Claims over contracts fuel litigation regarding landfill

Oregon business litigation involves many lawsuits over contracts between public agencies and private businesses. Many municipalities contract with private companies to collect garbage, provide water supplies and perform a myriad of other services that the municipalities find burdensome to administer themselves. The sheer volume of such arrangements leads to a steady flow of contracts litigation in the state and federal courts.

Government contracts may be secure income for some businesses

Small and medium-size businesses in Oregon may benefit greatly from obtaining government contracts to give the company a steady flow of secure income. This area of income development may work well also for minority-owned companies and those owned by military veterans. The government is tasked with considering these minority businesses for government contracts where appropriate.

Business disputes may deal with the enforcement of contracts

Many business transactions in Oregon and elsewhere are evidenced by a contract between the parties. A contract can be a formal, single document called a contract or an agreement, which has been written up by one or more attorneys. In commercial transactions, the contract can consist of a group of writings, emails and other communications that collectively comprise the agreement. Lawsuits over the meaning and enforcement of contracts is a common subject matter in business litigation.
