Key Issues in Contract Negotiations

Because contracts help define your relationships with clients, customers, employees, other companies, service providers, and suppliers, contract negotiations must be both thoughtful and strategic. Before you sign on the dotted line, our accomplished New York business contracts attorneys can help you consider key issues such as: 

  • Are the terms and conditions of the agreement clearly spelled-out?
  • Does the contract define material breach and the related penalties?
  • Does the contract provide enough flexibility to address changed circumstances?
  • Does the contract include a binding arbitration clause?
  • Does the contract include a non-compete clause or confidentiality agreement?
  • Does the contract include unfavorable terms that should be changed or removed?
  • Does the contract comply with New York law?

Ultimately, any contract must be consistent with your business strategy, and a successful transaction hinges on each party’s ability to fulfill its obligations under the agreement. For this reason, it is wise to have the trustworthy counsel that we can provide.
