Contracts

In today's economic environment, all businesses have the need to enter into contractual agreements to memorialize understandings between parties in the ordinary course of business and to allocate and mitigate risks when entering into a business relationship.   As part of the general corporate counseling work that we provide, our experienced attorneys routinely draft, negotiate, review and advise businesses with their contractual needs whether it be with partner, a supplier, a customer or for their websites.   In addition, our attorneys have experience working closely with the client to negotiate and structure business relationships prior to producing the customized underlying contractual documents to serve to memorialize the relationship between the parties while guarding against the inadvertent assumption of risk.   We bring a practical perspective to each contractual document that we review and produce and ensure that we understand the business landscape before producing the contractual document to maximize the results for client.   In addition, understanding that most businesses will be bought and sold during its lifecycle, our attorneys are keenly aware of the impact of favorable and transferable contractual documents have on the purchase and sale of the business during the M&A process.   Whether its negotiating and drafting  employment agreements, subcontract agreements, terms and conditions, restricted stock purchase agreements, distribution agreements, commission agreements and/or supply agreements, our attorneys draft and negotiate the contracts to bring unique perspective and a practical approach while being aware of transferability and indemnification issues that could impact a sale of a business.
