Mitchell B. Gerson, Esq.


Philadelphia Contracts Lawyer

Does your company need assistance writing employment contracts? I have practiced law for over 30 years and am the sole lawyer at the Law Office of Mitchell B. Gerson, Esq.. I effectively represent small businesses and individuals in the Philadelphia area. Contact a Newtown business attorney today to schedule a consultation. I assist clients with the following contract issues:

  • Employment contracts: I draft contracts for employment, non-compete agreements, and non-disclosures. I ensure that these contracts are EEOC compliant and reasonable enough for the courts to approve.

  • Trademark applications: I advise clients on what makes a good trademark based on my experience. I ensure that the trademark is distinctive and does not infringe on other trademarks. 

  • Copyright applications: I review the client’s product to ensure that it is copyrightable and is statutory compliant. A client’s product no longer has trade secret protection once copyrighted.

The Process

When a client comes to me as their lawyer, I first determine what legal needs and issues exist. I work closely with your business advisors to determine additional needs and concerns. I will talk with you to learn what your business goals are and I will draft an agreement that can reasonably help you achieve these goals.

Once assured that the contract is realistic and reasonable, I review it objectively from the other side’s perspective. During this process, some investigation may be necessary to facilitate negotiation, such as ensuring that a corporation is properly incorporated. I am a skilled negotiator who will work towards your best interests during negotiation. I make the necessary changes to the contract and you make the final decision of whether to use it or not.

Anyone can purchase a form to write a contract or apply for a trademark or copyright. However, when you hire my firm you will receive my personal knowledge and understanding of these forms. I know which items in a form do not apply or need to be changed to protect your rights. I know the law, the courts, and the parties involved. For an experienced and effective attorney, contact my Philadelphia law firm to discuss your legal needs.
