I signed a commercial lease for 5 years and wish to cancel it.  How do I do this?



"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". Likewise, a well drafted agreement is a sound investment for any business transaction and can prevent many costly future problems.

Contracts & Agreements

In law, prevention means anticipating problems and avoiding them or minimizing their impact by careful planning. We are firm believers in prevention and a well drafted commercial agreement goes a long way in terms of prevention.

A well drafted contract clearly details the rights and obligations of each party as well as the recourses that each may have in the event of a default by the other party. It also serves to document the understanding between the parties and constitutes very strong evidence of such understanding.

The time and investment required to prepare, negotiate and draft an agreement is negligible when compared to the much greater costs associated with litigation and it removes the uncertainties that go with any litigation.

Experience and expertise is needed to draft commercial agreements. Not only do the legal issues need to be considered, but also the specifics of each client and the area of business.

Our firm specializes in business law and has been reviewing and drafting commercial agreements in business law for over 15 years. We possess the knowledge, experience and expertise required to negotiate and draft commercial agreements that meet our client's needs and fully protect them. In the event of a default by the other party, we can quickly seek enforcement of the contractual obligations by all legal means including litigation.
