Scottsdale AZ Business Attorney Straight Talk ~ No Nonsense ~ Effective Representation

Business Contracts | Pearson Law | Scottsdale AZ

We've all heard the saying, "get it in writing." When it comes to business transactions, a contract must comply with several legal formalities to be valid.

As the business owner and operator of Pearson Law, I understand the concerns that entrepreneurs and small business owners face every day.

Contract Writing - Litigation - Breach of Contract

Business contracts take many forms. A formal written agreement is obviously a contract, but so is a handshake deal. Even an exchange of emails or text messages can hold legal liability.
Although oral contracts in Arizona can be legally binding, it can be challenging to prove the terms and conditions of a verbal agreement. If the parties involved in an oral contract have a dispute, each party will have a different view of the terms and conditions.

It's a good idea to insist on a written document.

Representing Arizona businesses of all sizes, as well as individuals, I can help companies negotiate critical terms of a contract and resolve contracts that have been breached.
  • Contract Review
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Litigation
  • Negotiation
Contracts cover an array of topics. From employee non-compete agreements to business-to-business, I will work with you to help avoid costly legal issues with contractual agreements.
  • Business to Business
  • Breach of Contract
  • Joint Venture
  • Non-Compete
  • Partnership
When it comes to your business's health, financial success, and future, at Pearson Law, you can count on knowledgeable strategies to resolve contracts, business disputes, litigation, and more with a personal touch.

Contract Review

Contract review requires diligence and an eye for detail. It is not uncommon for otherwise very cautious people to glance over a contract and just sign it without really knowing what it obligates them to do.

I review contracts to ensure that your business interests are protected from the start.

Contract Negotiation

Contracts are an integral part of many transactions and most deals. From business-to-business, business-to-consumer, or employment agreements -at some point- you are going to be negotiating a written contract.

Successfully negotiating a contract means that both sides look for positives that benefit each party while still achieving a fair and equitable deal. I bring my experience to the table to help negotiate a contract that is in the best interest of your company.

Dispute Resolution 

Dispute resolution is the process of resolving disputes between parties. When a contractual dispute arises, you need to make a business decision. Sometimes that will mean negotiating a resolution; other times may require filing a lawsuit.

Pearson Law has the experience to handle all aspects of a business dispute.
  • Arbitration
  • Litigation
  • Meditation

Commercial Litigation

Commercial litigation involves conflicts that arise in the business context. From breach of fiduciary duty to partnership and shareholder or transactional disputes, Pearson Law acts to protect my Client's valuable interests by help assisting in resolving the problem.

If a resolution is not possible, I am prepared to go to court to enforce my Client's rights.
I also handle complex litigation issues involving the following:
  • Collections Actions
  • Employment Litigation
  • Fraud & Misrepresentation
  • Intellectual Property Claims
  • Professional Service Disputes
  • Tortious Interference with Contract
  • Theft of Trade Secrets
  • Unfair Competition
In addition to the above litigation issues, Businesses can face a litany of other challenges. From licensing to trademarks, when you need help with legal matters and understanding your legal rights pertaining to your business you can count on Karl Pearson at Pearson Law to provide the answers that you need to hear, not just what you want to hear. 

Breach of Contract

In the business world, there are countless types of business contracts. From employee agreements to transactional agreements and covenants not to compete, letters of intent to name a few. 

A Breach of Contract occurs when a party fails failure to perform any promise that forms all or part of a contract.

There are several remedies for breach of agreements, such as an award of monetary damages, specific performance, rescission, and restitution. In most situations, the first solution is an award of monetary damages and a discussion of payment terms.

Personal, Legal Representation

From business litigation to managing employees to daily operations, keeping track of your finances, all while staying focused on the future of your business, you have a lot to deal with. Complex legal issues shouldn't be one of them.

At Pearson Law, in addition to reviewing, litigating, negotiating, and writing contracts, I have helped hundreds of clients resolve a wide array of legal disputes involving their business. Representing Arizona businesses of all sizes, as well as individuals, I believe that everyone deserves straightforward answers. Unlike large law firms, at Pearson Law, you can expect personal attention every step of the way.

When Clients hire me, they have direct access to me throughout their case and will never work with an Associate Attorney with little experience.

Legal Consultation

When questions arise, and you're not sure where to turn, I can help make legal sense of the case your business is facing.

I will assess your business relationships and litigation issues and explain your options in terms that make sense and provide a frank assessment of the likely outcome of your case.

My goal is to resolve your matter as quickly as possible. After all, lawsuits can damage reputations and cause financial hardships. The bottom line is, handling disputes from the start is critical to a business's bottom line.

With over 25 years of experience, when it comes to your business's health, financial success, and future, with our business contract lawyers, you can count on knowledgeable strategies to resolve business disputes, litigation, contracts, operating agreements, bankruptcy, and more with a personal touch.

Mr. Pearson is an amazing attorney! He is very easy to talk to and is very good at explaining everything that needs to be explained. His office is easy to find and located right in the heart of Oldtown Scottsdale. I would recommend Mr. Pearson to anyone who has been injured and wants the special attention that they deserve!

Karl Pearson protected me and saved my home when other Attorneys could not or would not.

I met Karl through my employee assistance program and after one meeting I hired him. Prior to hiring Karl I had lost my 3 year old case with my HOA who had a civil judgment of over $12,000.00 against me, and a lien against my property. The HOA was also seeking garnishment of my earnings. Several other law firms who reviewed the case recommended that I pay the judgment, or file bankruptcy. When Karl was done with the HOA, the garnishment was stopped, the lien lifted, and quite unbelievably Karl negotiated with the HOA who paid me $5,000.00! And yes, the judgment was no longer something I had to pay! Karl was honest with me, and his fees were very reasonable. Karl saved me, and my house, but more importantly he gave me peace of mind and restored my faith in the Judicial System. THANK YOU KARL!
