Contract Review and Negotiation

Contractual agreements serve as the legal roadmap for every business relationship.

Business entities and individuals alike must take care that their rights, obligations, representations and warranties are memorialized clearly and definitively in well-crafted, legally binding written agreements.

S+U provides such comprehensive contract services.  Where the client can dictate the contract template, S+U can efficiently tailor and negotiate contractual agreements for repeat use in connection with the provision of standard, novel, upgraded, and experimental services and products.

S+U can deftly prepare amendments, modifications and riders to standard industry contracts, such as the AIA contracts of the construction industry.

Where the customer cannot dictate the contract template, S+U will review, revise and negotiate contracts in the first instance on behalf of its clients.

Finally, S+U can assist clients in submitting responses to Requests for Proposals and disseminating Requests/Invitations for Bids.
