Putting " inside an Excel formula as text

I have the following formula...

="Thank you for retaining Cheerful, Helpful and Friendly, LLC to assist you in this matter. This agreement for calculation engagement services between Big Bob's Beef Jerky, Inc.  (hereinafter sometimes referred to as the Company), Big Bob Smith (hereinafter sometimes referred to as a Member/Owner) and Cheerful, Helpful and Friendly, LLC (hereinafter sometimes referred to as the Valuation Firm) outlines our understanding of the terms and objectives of the calculation engagement. In accordance with our understanding, this agreement constitutes a legally binding contract and should be reviewed carefully."

I need to put "s around "the Company", "the Member/Owner" and "the Valuation Firm."  But when I do, Excel screams error.  I have tried putting the "s inside of two "s, but no luck.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hello,

to write double quotes inside a formula, you need to double them.

 double
In this case, Excel throws an error for me in 2013 because the text is more than 255 characters and I need to break it down into several chunks connected with a & sign. Then it works fine.

="Thank you for retaining Cheerful, Helpful and Friendly, LLC to assist you in this matter. This agreement for calculation engagement services between Big Bob's Beef Jerky, Inc.  (hereinafter sometimes referred to as ""the Company""),"&" Big Bob Smith (hereinafter sometimes referred to as a ""Member/Owner"") and Cheerful, Helpful and Friendly, "&"LLC (hereinafter sometimes referred to as the ""Valuation Firm"") outlines our understanding of the terms and objectives of the calculation engagement."
