Commercial law and business contracts

Contracts make good friends. In addition to the partnership contract and agreement between shareholders, many other contracts quickly become necessary when starting a business, or need to be reviewed or negotiated throughout the business’s life. Having an experienced lawyer is crucial in this case, to avoid making mistakes that could put the health and sustainability of your company at risk in the future.






A “customized” service

Additionally, your business lawyers from DS Décarie Lawyers offer truly “customizable” services. The experience our team of litigators has acquired before the tribunals benefits their clients and ensures that the signed commercial documents are “customized” for you, in your best interest. The method of using “untested” model contracts before the court is proudly banned from our firm.

What is the difference between a business lawyer and a notary?

Are you wondering if you might need a lawyer to prepare a business contract? Know that the lawyers from DS Décarie Lawyers are fighters and creative jurists. They are also, as opposed to notaries, because of the nature of their oath of office, mandated to solely serve your interests. Thus, if you want the legal documents you need to be written in your best interests and to your advantage, work with a lawyer from Décarie Lawyers who will work for you and in your sole interest during the writing or negotiating of a business contract. Don’t forget that the notary must act impartially and independently between contracting parties.
