Contracts are at the heart of business transactions and general operations. A properly drafted contract lays out the rights and duties of all parties, and does so with an eye toward avoiding litigation. However, even careful document preparation is sometimes not enough to avoid a dispute. In these situations, it is essential for a business owner to seek out a skilled commercial lawyer.

Elizabeth Declaratory Judgment Actions Lawyers
In some situations, a contract may give rights to or impose obligations on a business that might conflict with New Jersey law. It is often useful in these situations to go to court and ask a judge to decide whether the contractual provision at issue is valid. This is known as requesting a declaratory judgment.
If you have entered into a contract and are now questioning its validity or enforceability, we encourage you to talk to us. Our legal team can analyze the contract and the relevant law, and then advise you accordingly. A declaratory judgment action may be useful, because it can tell you the status of the contract without the need for protracted litigation.
