Contract Review, Analysis and Negotiation Coaching

 

I’m ready to hire DailyGC™ now.

It has been said, “Lawyers talk to lawyers, but people talk to people.” The point is that when businesspeople negotiate their contracts or meet to resolve their issues, there often is no place for a lawyer at the table. This is especially true for small businesses. You typically are expected to know and understand what is in your contracts, to effectively negotiate them before you sign them, and to resolve your differences when they arise, all without the benefit of a lawyer beside you.

At DailyGC™, our small business lawyers have many years of experience preparing managers and division heads for their business negotiations. We will review with you in detail the terms of the contract you are negotiating, to make sure that it contains all of the terms and conditions that you need. Some terms will be negotiable and some won’t be; we help you to distinguish between them. We also help you to focus on the terms that need to be negotiated in order to effectively accomplish your business purposes. We will work with you to devise negotiation strategies, which may include offering alternative contract provisions or giving in on less important disputed items in order to be more assertive on others that are more important. In either event, the result will be a contract that puts you in the best possible position to accomplish your business purposes when the contract is completed and to enforce the contract in the event that there is a problem in performance.
