Business Contract Lawyer

Don't Walk Away from a Business Contract Gone Bad

While verbal agreements and handshakes are important aspects of conducting business, neither of these practices provide protection like a legally binding contract can. At Tempus Fugit Law, we help local business owners, employees, contractors and others create, interpret and modify contracts as well as offer counsel and advocate on their behalf regarding disputes pertaining to such documents. Our track record of successful outcomes, commitment to client experience and exceptional value have helped position our firm as the go-to choice for a business contract lawyer in Boston and throughout the region.


We are one of the few law firms that will consider taking a business contract dispute on a contingency fee basis. That means you have no out of pocket costs.

We take great pride in positive feedback from clients who have turned to us when they needed a business contract lawyer in Boston. Niko C. explains how our thorough approach helped him resolve a dispute with his former employer in a 5-star Yelp review, “Gil and his team are not just incredibly talented, knowledgeable and professional, but incredibly personal. I had an issue with a former employer and they treated me as if I was a member of their family. They never left a stone unturned and they made the Massachusetts law easy for me to understand. I can't recommend them enough! Thank you Gil!”

On Google, Whitney B. shares her experience, “Gil and his team were a pleasure to work with. My husband and I bought a business recently and used Gil, David and Helen. They were responsive at all hours of the day - emailing back on a Friday night and over the weekend. They made sure we were more than covered/protected. […] They were all very professional and knowledgeable on buying/selling a business. I would highly recommend to my closest family and friends.”

Our team of legal professionals bring extensive experience to every facet of business contract law, including business formation, ownership, operation, shareholder agreements, mergers, acquisitions, government contracts and joint ventures as well as more complex and nuanced business transactions like agreements for distribution and suppliers, development and financing. No matter what your need for a business contract lawyer in Boston may be, our firm has the resources and first-hand insight required to deliver optimal results through pre-emptive counseling and drafting as well as remedial measures like mediation and litigation in Massachusetts court rooms.

Federal and state laws pertaining to business contracts are designed to protect employees and private contractors – not just those who hire them. If you encounter a dispute with your employer regarding your contract, our team of attorneys can help you find a viable solution. You don’t have to worry about crippling expenses either. Unlike other business contract lawyers in Boston who may charge $700+ per hour for contract resolution and wage theft dispute, we are able to offer our services on a contingency basis. That means you don’t pay a cent until your case is resolved and you are awarded the money you deserve.

Tempus Fugit’s Tenacity Proves Successful for Boston Biotech Business Litigation Client

I discovered my business was damaged, and was not sure where to turn to or what legal remedies, if any were possible. I turned to Tempus Fugit, and after a brief interview of my situation, I was told I had a case. A video meeting followed, with Attorneys Schipani and Hamdan, the key points were gathered and they quickly put together a course of action. I was hand held and assured through the entire process, as I had never been in such a predicament before, and Alexis consoled me through the entire process as we worked as a team to bring about a quick resolution. I can’t thank Alexis enough for her candidness, tenacity and professionalism. I would highly recommend Tempus Fugit.

"Alexis is positively brilliant.  She exhibits great skill and knowledge – offering clients her excellent legal experience, creativity and business acumen.  Beyond that, Alexis takes a tireless approach to everything she does with a refreshingly friendly and direct communication style. Her professional approach is only outweighed by her sincere willingness to determinedly 'do whatever it takes' in advocating for her clients – all while ensuring that they completely understand every step and stage of a matter. To put it more plainly: she educates them during the process. Having worked with many attorneys in the past, it is easy to say that her attention to detail is unmatched and her meticulous research is exhaustive.  She knows what it takes to support her clients in making sound business decisions and her responsiveness is truly impressive.  Overall, Alexis is a valued business partner, trusted advisor of the highest caliber and an absolute joy to work with."
