Employment agreements important for many TN business owners

At the established Brentwood business law firm of Cook Tillman Law Group, we believe that effective representation of Tennessee business owners spans the entire lifecycle of a business – from early issues focused on entity formation to late-stage matters addressing dissolution and buy-out agreements.

We address those matters and many other key business issues on our firm’s website. In doing so, we spotlight one area upon which many commercial principals and entrepreneurs especially focus: the “preparation, review and negotiation of internal contracts and agreements.”

Contracts are generally important for any commercial enterprise, of course. They legally establish contracting parties’ rights and duties. They provide the governing framework for their interaction on matters ranging from performance to dispute resolution. And they reduce the potential for ambiguity and misunderstanding.

A recent national news article stresses that one specific contract is vital for many companies. It states that there is perhaps no internal contract more important to business owners than a solidly executed employment agreement with all – or at least key – employees

There are several reasons for this. Timely and tailored input from experienced commercial attorneys can help ensure that workers have a comprehensive understanding of matters important to a business. Those can range widely from salary specifics and benefits to work rules and expectations. Language can additionally address matters like performance reviews, company trade secret protection, dispute resolution and job termination.

For further information on employment contracts or other commercial matters, business owners and company managers across Tennessee can contact a proven business law legal team for guidance.
