Internal Contract Drafting and Review

Whether dealing with non-disclosure agreements, confidentiality agreements, non-competes, waiver of liability agreements or other types of agreements to be used within your organization, you'll want to make sure that the "i's" are dotted and the "t's" are crossed. Small errors in these documents could have uninteded consequences and therefore the documents may not accomplish what you intended them to. This is why expert review is essential. Our team of contract lawyers know what to look for and stand ready to assist you. We offer assistance reviewing documents that are already in place, drafting templates you can use repeatedly, and drafting transaction-specific, agreements tailored to your particular circumstances.

Third Party Agreements

Whether you need an agreement drafted or reviewed, business agreements with third parties should always be reviewed by a contract lawyer. Whether you are entering a distribution agreement, software development agreement, manufacturing agreement or some other type of agreement you and/or your business partners will most likely have questions about the language included or the language you are looking to have included.

United States / Canada Cross-Border Transactions

If you are looking to facilitate a commercial cross-border transaction between the United States and Canada, there are few things you should be aware of. You need both a Canadian and an American attorney and accountant. Tax laws and employment laws are different in Canada than they are in the United States. We offer assistance in sourcing local and Canadian accountants and attorneys when needed.
