Drafting and Review

Written Contracts

Drafting is the first step, and involves writing down the terms and conditions of the agreement between the parties to the contract. The goal is to create a legally binding document that is clear, concise, and correctly outlines your intentions and protects your interest.

Review ("Redlining")

The parties to a contract may go through several drafts before the contract is finalized. This step is generally where we review the contract draft and make any amendments or changes with the attorneys for the other parties.

Having an attorney review a contract before signing is essential to protect you from future legal disputes.


After the drafting and review process, negotiations may take place between the parties to obtain favorable terms and minimize financial or legal risks. We can help you by providing advice on how to secure the best deal possible. Once the agreement is established, the parties will be legally bound to the contractual terms.

Non-Disclosure Agreements


A non-disclosure agreement, or confidentiality agreement is a contract by which one or more parties agree not to disclose confidential information that they have shared with each other, as a necessary part of doing business together.

Non-disclosure agreements are commonly used to protect trade secrets, client information, and other valuable information. Sharing information in spite of a non-disclosure agreement qualifies as a breach of contract and can open the breaching party up to a lawsuit.
