Responsibilities of a Business Transaction Attorney

Here at Berg Plummer Johnson & Raval, LLP, our Houston business transaction lawyers provide comprehensive, end-to-end transactional services.

Negotiation

Negotiating in the commercial business transaction context generally requires that an attorney seek win-win compromises (given that most business transactions involve cooperative ventures between two or more businesses) in developing a satisfactory agreement for the contracting parties.  Skillful negotiation is as much about client engagement as it is about finding common ground with the other parties in a business transaction — the negotiation must properly align with the client’s objectives.

Drafting

Drafting an agreement requires that an attorney remain engaged in transparent communication with the relevant stakeholders and include terms, conditions, and provisions that track those agreed-upon during negotiations.  Where possible, ambiguity should be avoided.

Execution

Closing a transaction requires that all parties follow proper procedure.  Business transaction attorneys not only ensure that the requisite legal procedures are followed, but also work to ensure that commercial transactions have been mutually agreed upon and that all parties are notified as to the material facts on which the transaction rests.

Dispute Resolution

In the event of conflict, the business transaction attorneys here at Berg Plummer Johnson & Raval, LLP will be aggressive advocates on your behalf, whether in mediation, arbitration proceedings, or trial litigation.  Our reputation for aggressive advocacy and track record of success in litigation gives our clients an advantage during the dispute resolution process — the opposition is much more likely to favorably settle the dispute. 

A skilled and experienced business transaction attorney is a critical ally throughout the business transaction process, from helping you structure, negotiate, draft, and execute complicated transactions to litigating disputes on your behalf when conflicts arise as a result of breach or fraud.  By working with a Houston business transaction attorney here at Berg Plummer Johnson & Raval, LLP, you will be provided comprehensive legal services from beginning-to-end of the transactional process.

In the absence of well-qualified legal support, your business transactions could be quite costly in the long-term given that your company may be exposed to a heightened risk of liability that could have otherwise been avoided.  We understand that exposure to such risk fundamentally a cost decision.  At Berg Plummer Johnson & Raval, LLP, we work closely with clients to evaluate the legal services they need to accomplish their objectives and develop a fee arrangement that is suitable for their budget.
