Contract Law

At St. Peter Law Offices, Don St. Peter and associate Mike O’Brien are especially equipped to help you navigate the complex waters of contract law, including drafting and review of contracts, as well as contract disputes. Whether you are creating a contract or contesting one, our lawyers can help you understand the many legal defenses against purported contract formation, including:

  • Unconscionability
  • Incapacity
  • Duress
  • Undue influence
  • Misrepresentation or fraud
  • Frustration of purpose
  • Mistake (e.g. non est factum)

Furthermore, if a contract is breached, the injured party might seek damages or a “specific performance,”—that the contract be carried out.

If we can help you create or contest a contract, please contact our offices.

Corporate Transactions

Also known as “mergers and acquisitions,” corporate transactions include the transfer or combination of companies or other business organizations. Corporate transactions allow you to expand, contract, or shape the nature of your business venture to maximize your competitive edge. Corporate transactions can also help you structure your company in the most beneficial way for tax purposes.

The M&A process can take a multitude of forms, including horizontal mergers, vertical mergers, conglomerate M&A, arms-length mergers, strategic mergers, and others. There can also be a number of possible reasons, including economies of scale or scope, tax benefits, diversification, resource transfer, or talent acquisition. If you believe a corporate transaction could help your business venture succeed, please contact our offices.
