Wills & Estates
CALGARY WILLS LAWYER
It is important to have an experienced Calgary Wills Lawyer to help you with your will. Even close and well-intentioned family members can come into conflict upon the death or incapacity of a loved one. It is only by laying out the specifics of your wishes in a legal document that you can make sure they are followed. If you do not have a will, or personal directive or enduring power of attorney, the ones who are closest to you may disagree about what’s best for you and enter into expensive and emotionally hurtful arguments.
In addition to determining distribution of financial assets, parents can appoint in their will guardians for minor children. Knowledgeable legal counsel can help you to prepare the will most appropriate for your circumstances.
A will can be nullified by a court if it is drafted incorrectly or fails to adhere to technical requirements. Our Calgary Wills Lawyer will ensure not only that you have included all items of personal importance to you in a will document, but also that you have created a document that will hold up under scrutiny. Recent changes in Alberta law make it all the more important to seek legal advice about your will or power of attorney.

Business Contract & Agreements
CALGARY SMALL BUSINESS CONTRACT LAWYERS
Commercial contracts are important to all businesses. It is on this contractual basis that businesses function: Contracts provide a level of certainty that stakeholders in a business and its clients, suppliers and business associates will uphold their stated responsibilities. At Mullen & Company, our Calgary business contract lawyers advise small-business owners on proposed contracts and draft contractual terms consistent with their entrepreneurial objectives.
BENEFITS OF CONTRACTS
While many businesses depend on maintaining a collegial relationship with those that provide goods and services they need for their operations, formal contracts — as opposed to handshake agreements — are important for the sake of clarity and certainty; in short, that parties to a contract are clear on what their responsibilities are, and to whom. In addition, formal contracts are often necessary to demonstrate to third parties, such as banking institutions and outside investors, what the obligations are of the business.
Mullen & Company maintains a comprehensive business law practice. We focus primarily on transactional work: We draft and review contracts before they are signed and advise on potential modifications to meet your business needs. In essence, we want to prevent problems before they start.
We have been an established part of the Alberta legal community for more than 20 years, and call on more than 30 years of experience within the legal profession. We have attracted high-quality business clients who have remained with our practice for the long term, due to our consistent dedication to high standards of ethics, professionalism and sound legal advice.
