Relationships

  • Contracts- we draft contracts between organisations and between people and organisations, and we create standard documents for our clients to use to govern and to protect themselves.
  • Negotiations- we check and vet contracts that clients want to sign, and negotiate alterations and improvements. We negotiate with government departments and banks on behalf of clients.
  • Connections- we are often in a position to connect clients with other useful service providers, facilitators and potential partners.
