Contracts and Commercial Agreements

Contracts and Commercial Agreements


Beyond nuanced understanding of the laws that govern companies, our attorneys learn the complex dynamics of your business to deliver personal, pragmatic approaches to achieve your objectives and goals. For large public and private clients, as well as small private and closely-held family companies, we help you mitigate potential risks, negotiate desired terms and compromises, and create sophisticated arrangements that set the course for your business and establish a solid foundation from which to operate.

Our team offers a wealth of experience in drafting and negotiating business documents of many types, including:

  • Business formation and governance documents
  • Employment and consulting agreements
  • Independent sales representative and other independent contractor relationships
  • Compensation, stock options and severance benefits
  • Sales, supply, distribution, manufacturing and service agreements
  • Key commercial terms, including product warranties, indemnification, limitation of liability provisions and standard terms and conditions of purchase or sale
  • Joint ventures and strategic alliances
  • Confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements
  • Securities, registrations rights and shareholder agreements
  • Real estate contracts, including purchase, sale, leasing and financing documents
  • Construction contracts
  • Equipment purchasing and leasing documents
  • Equity and debt financing documents
  • Acquisition and divestiture agreements
  • Licensing agreements
  • Franchise documents
  • Transportation and logistics agreements
  • International agreements

Your attorney should be one of your key strategic business advisors. We often serve as "outside general counsel" to our clients. In this role, we strive to combine a trusted point of contact who knows you, your appetite for risk, your unique goals, and distinct needs with a deep team of lawyers with varied areas of business experience upon which to draw to ensure that you can maintain focus on the success of your business.

Each of our lawyer's e-mail address is provided with his or her biography. If you are not a current client of our firm, you should not e-mail our lawyers with any confidential information or any information about a specific legal matter, given that our firm may presently represent persons or companies who have interests that are adverse to you. If you are not a current client and you e-mail any lawyer in our firm, you do so without any expectation of confidentiality. We will not establish a professional relationship with you via e-mail. Instead, you should contact our firm by telephone so that we can determine whether we are in a position to consult with you about any legal matters before you share any confidential or sensitive information with us.
