Contracts and commercial agreements are the cornerstone and foundation of all functioning companies and business entities. Many companies, however, make the mistake of not using or drafting their own legal documents with the assistance of dedicated legal counsel. When companies choose to forego professional legal advice for the sake of cost, it can cost them more in the long run.

All contracts, whether they are directed in-house at employees, or to third-parties, can benefit from professional review and drafting. Enlisting our attorneys can ensure that your contracts are tailored specifically for the company or situation at hand. Companies should not settle for form contracts found on the Internet or transcribed from other situations. We meet with you to properly advise you on how to proceed, analyze the needs of your company, and draft contracts that can provide you with the proper legal protection should disputes arise in the future.

We also know how to specifically address intellectual property concerns in all aspects of your business or commercial agreements. Many companies overlook protecting intellectual property because they fail to recognize it for what it is. Trade secrets, such as consumer lists, are often overlooked or not addressed in employment or non-disclosure agreements. We want to make sure you have addressed your important needs and obligations.

Our team of experienced transactional attorneys draft and negotiate a variety of contracts, including general commercial contracts, buy-sell arrangements, intellectual property licensing agreements, intellectual property sales agreements, franchising agreements, financing agreements, manufacturing agreements, maintenance agreements, information technology agreements, employment agreements, and many more.
