A well-prepared contract stands up better in court. At Skeen & Kauffman, L.L.P., we believe that a contract drafted by an attorney who is also a trial lawyer, may be crafted better than one prepared by a transaction-only attorney. Why? Because when you know how to break a contract, you also know how to draft one that is much less likely to be broken.

The attorneys at Skeen & Kauffman, L.L.P. avoid litigation through the skillful preparation of contracts and other transactional work. Please contact our Baltimore business law attorneys for help with any of the following matters:

  • Leases
  • Employment agreements
  • Sales and manufacturer's representative agreements
  • American Institute of Architects (AIA) construction forms
  • Standard terms and conditions

  • Stock purchase agreements
