Contract review and Sporadic Support
We love shaking things up and working with emerging businesses! It’s a chance for us to flex our entrepreneurial muscle. It also keeps us on our toes and forces us to stay ahead of the curve in delivering legal solutions that protect your business in ways that everyone can understand. We won’t overlawyer your documents. And, since our lawyers have lots of experience working in large companies, we are a great resource to have in your corner to level the playing field if you’re negotiating with a giant.
Setting clear expectations means having fewer disputes.
Protect your rights as tenant or landlord.
Understand the strengths and weaknesses of your position. We can facilitate Alternative Dispute Resolution as a way to deal with a legal problem quickly without going to court, and maybe even salvage the relationship.
Banking and finance is one of our largest practice areas. We know what is market and what isn’t. AND, what can be negotiated and what can’t.
A well-structured shareholder agreement means thinking ahead about how you will run, grow and exit the business. It's so important this be done right.
Self-serve Procurement Contracts
Development and Management of Legal and Legal Tech Projects
We wouldn't blame you for thinking that the legal industry and cool technology don’t belong in the same sentence. And yet we see technology as a way to make legal solutions more efficient and legal analysis more accurate and useful. We have our own tech resources, working hand and hand with our lawyers to analyze, automate and ultimately de-risk legal functions. We are also platform agnostic: Whatever works best out there is what we use.
Automate Routine Processes
A tailor-made workflow that ensures all steps are followed, in the correct order and on time is not only possible, but is easier to build than you think. Our whole firm runs this way and your company could benefit too.
A.I. Contract Analysis
Finding the risk elements that might lurk in a pool of hundreds of your contracts can be daunting. Working with A.I., our talented lawyers can do the job right and affordably. So in case you're looking to sell one day, find out first what your liabilities are by getting a clear picture on what your contracts say. Then, manage the risks by identifying where you can improve your position.
Take the Mystery out of Terminations
We use A.I. to search years of court settlements that match your employee’s circumstances to advise on the right settlement amount so you can confidently offer (and defend) a termination package.
Create Contract Templates
To scale, your legal function needs to be rock solid. We can help you level up your contract templates. And we’ll automate those templates allowing for easy amendments and even e-signatures.
