Commercial Agreements

We help negotiate your most important agreements

We have significant experience negotiating complex commercial agreements, including technology and content license agreements, talent agreements, joint-venture agreements, purchase agreements, supply agreements, and master service agreements.

We have experience negotiating against the largest and most successful companies in the world, including Disney, Viacom, Hanes, Microsoft, Sony, Warner Bros, and Samsung.

We are able to lend our business expertise to help craft the deal from day 1 or execute against a term sheet you have already negotiated.  We move quickly by focusing on the deal points that matter to our clients.

We are also able to review existing contracts to help determine your rights and remedies in the event of  a dispute.
