We have significant experience in preparing, analyzing and negotiating all types of contracts. These range from long-term, “master service” agreements with clients’ strategic partners to business as usual, “one-off” arrangements. Our lawyers work on a wide variety of types of agreements, from agency, covenant not to compete, distribution, manufacturing, merger & acquisition, and partnership agreements to licensing and other agreements on technology, IT services, software, farm equipment and commodities, and other supplying of goods and services.

Contract preparation and negotiation is an important part of many of our practices and service areas. These include corporate & transactional, estate planning, intellectual property, labor & employment, construction, and more. Our contract lawyers work closely with other WLJ practice groups to tap into our expertise in other areas and avoid problems we’ve seen in the past.

We approach all contract work with that in mind, and an assessment of the risks in contract language and ways we can help with practical mitigation of those risks. If you have any type of contract issue, we can help.
