Effective Contract Negotiators

Contracts are how companies do business with each other and with customers. The St. Louis law firm of Donner Applewhite advises businesses on contract drafting, negotiates contracts and represents clients in breach of contract litigation.

Lawyers Who Understand Business Contracts

As former entrepreneurs, attorneys Steve Donner and Tom Applewhite understand the importance of negotiating advantageous contract terms. They are experienced negotiators who help their clients reach agreements with commercial property lenders, vendors, employees and customers. They maximize profits and benefits while minimizing risk and potential liability for their clients.

Well-Crafted Employment Contracts

In many industries, it is common practice for companies to use employment contracts. Besides salary and benefits, the terms of the contract often include confidentiality agreements, also known as nondisclosure agreements, to protect the employer's sensitive information. An employment contract can also include a noncompete clause to limit the ability of an employee to move to a competing company.

At Donner Applewhite the attorneys work with employers to draft employment contracts that meet their goals while complying with noncompete law and other regulations.

Contract Negotiation And Litigation Attorneys

Contracts only work when every party involved understands the terms and fulfills their obligations. A disagreement can turn into breach of contract litigation. Donner Applewhite forcefully represents clients who have been the victim of a breach, or accused of breaching a contract. They protect their clients' best interests and work toward the best available resolution.
