Whether you are a small business, large company, or individual, a contracts lawyer can offer the legal advice you need when dealing with contracts.
Contracts lawyers negotiate contracts, handle contract drafting and revisions, and execute legally enforceable agreements, including:
Employment contracts/employment agreements
Independent contractor agreements
Real estate contracts
Intellectual property agreements and licenses
Family law contracts (pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements)
All other types of contracts
Contracts lawyers also assist with contract litigation and contract disputes, such as in situations involving breach of contract.

Consider the following when determining which law firm should provide legal representation for your contract case:
- Are you comfortable telling the contracts attorney personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on contract cases before? Do they have experience working with individuals, business owners, in-house counsel or other relevant stakeholders?
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
