Contracts & Commercial Agreements Solution-Oriented Documents

Critical to protecting business interests are well-constructed and executed contracts and other commercial agreements. We routinely work with both buyers and sellers of goods, services, and technology to develop and implement effective, practical documents that safeguard all manner of assets. Our team works with clients across a broad range of industries to produce toolkits that include templates, playbooks, decision-making matrixes, and training materials to support successful contract negotiation.

Approach

The Big Picture

Because we have worked for many years with both buyers and sellers and across a wide range of transactions for large, complex organizations, our team can quickly evaluate the needs of both parties. Our attorneys are deft at finding middle ground without engaging in protracted or acrimonious negotiations, while still vigorously protecting our clients' interests. When developing suites of materials to assist clients in negotiating agreements, we bear in mind these documents will be used by multiple staff members across a variety of business units, all with different perspectives and needs. Our long experience in managing multiple considerations on a budget drives us to produce only tools our clients will really use.
