Transaction Strategy and Consulting
The best way to explore relationship compatibility is through an authentic conversation about purpose and intention. Often, parties may have a desire to work together, but haven't fully considered many circumstances that can shape a relationship in the future. Who is doing what? What happens when more money is needed? Are there business decisions that require unanimous agreement between the parties? What happens if a partner wants to leave the relationship? What happens if someone dies? These are a few examples of major issues that should be discussed in the process of relationship exploration. I guide conversations between parties to uncover issues that haven't been explored and present options that are available for that transaction. This process usually takes 1 - 3 hours, but will save you a lot of time, money, and stress over the course of your business relationship. If compatibility can be established, we move on to the next step; drafting a document that comprehensively reflects the purpose and intentions of the relationship.
Review and Negotiation
Do you know what you're signing? Parties sometimes put forth everything they want in a deal and see if those terms are blindly accepted. I will help you understand what is being presented so you can make an informed choice whether the proposed relationship works for you. Through my informative process, you will understand what possibilities can be available in your business relationships. I steer negotiation on a path that is authentically expressed and usually received in a non-reactive manner.
Having a contract that comprehensively reflects the goals and intentions between parties is essential. Ambiguity is often a primary source of conflict, and pursuing litigation can cost tens of thousands of dollars. I provide comprehensive contract drafting services in the following areas.
