"I built Bailyn Law from the ground up to solve problems and resolve disputes for entrepreneurs."
We strategically and intelligently draft and negotiate business contracts, resolve business disputes and manage business debts. We use whatever strategies are most effective at the time from friendly negotiation to more neutral mediation/arbitration to full-scale scorched-earth litigation.
Business Contracts And Transactions
A contract is not supposed to be a garbage can full of meaningless boilerplate. A contract is supposed to be a detailed list of the most important objectives both sides wish to achieve worded in a way that anticipates likely problems and plans in advance how to resolve those problems so that the relationship stays good for the long-term. If you approach contracts with this understanding, you will have a relatively short document that resolves most problems without the need for outside intervention. It's a living document. Making a good contract doesn't take more time or effort than making a lazy one, it just takes a better attitude and more experience, both of which you'll get here.
Commercial Litigation - Protecting And Defending Entrepreneurs
Too many people have the understanding that when it comes to enriching themselves, the ends justify the means. Whatever is valuable and accessible, they'll try to take for themselves by any means possible. Refusing to pay for products or services they purchased, starting a competing company using stolen resources, selling trade secrets to competitors, attempting to whitewash their dishonest acts via deceptive papers filed in court, it's a distinction barely worth making because it's all the same antisocial attitude of absolute entitlement.
The good news is that determined entrepreneurs can win full repayment with legal fees and punitive damages. Some entrepreneurs will fight to the bitter end to make a point, driving the bad actor deep into bankruptcy and making them pay more than they stole. Other entrepreneurs simply want their money or property back.
Bottom line: not every entrepreneur is willing to accept the destruction of their company and they don't have to. If you're one of those people who believes in keeping what is yours and you're willing to defend your rights, we'll help to make your efforts productive and successful.
Business Debt Relief - For Entrepreneurs Who Learn The Hard Way
Good faith entrepreneurs come to us because they have learned the hard way how to make their ideas successful. The cost of learning was high and now there are piles of debt that need to be dealt with. Debt is like a cancer in that it quickly gets worse and worse until you get the necessary treatment, at which point it can oftentimes be controlled or eliminated.
We have a lot of experience helping business owners get a fresh start, from bankruptcy and complex out of court debt restructurings to simple negotiations for more time or less money, to complete company shutdowns and layoffs.
