Commercial Contracts and Sales

Commercial Contracts and Sales

The success of a business depends, in large part, on effective contracts. When you purchase, sell, distribute or lease goods, there are certain steps you must take to ensure that your commercial contracts are enforceable in court. The commercial contracts and sales lawyers at MPL Law Firm can draft, review, or negotiate your commercial contracts to ensure that your interests are protected. We can also represent you in disputes arising from a poorly drafted or breached commercial contract.

Over the past 30 years, our firm has offered comprehensive support to a wide range of commercial businesses — from acting as general counsel for small local companies to providing local counsel to large, out-of-state corporations. Our attorneys have garnered a strong reputation in the legal community for our success in finding solutions to complex legal matters and for our dedication to providing high-quality representation.

We represent clients in transactions related to the sale, lease and distribution of goods.

In Pennsylvania, transactions such as the sale, lease and distribution of goods are primarily governed by Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). Commercial contracts must adhere to specific terms to be enforceable in court. At MPL Law Firm we help clients follow the UCC to form, modify, or dispute commercial contracts involving:

  • Sale of goods
  • Leases
  • Distribution agreements
  • Franchise agreements

We handle commercial contract disputes involving breach of contract, unconscionable contracts and the duty of good faith (allegations of fraud or unfair advantage), and warranties (including warranty of title, implied warranty of merchantability, implied warranty of fitness, and express warranties). We also have a thorough understanding of the UCC and contracts law, which we will use to your advantage during business mediation, arbitration, or trial.

The manufacturing industry looks to us for legal counsel.

Many of central Pennsylvania’s leading manufacturing companies are clients of MPL Law Firm. Our practice in this area includes representing our clients’ interests in distribution agreements, dealer agreements and other contracts involving the manufacturing, marketing and sale of goods.
