Contract Review and Legal Risk Assessment Service

This service includes a detailed analysis of the contractual documentation presented to you by your counterparts and a subsequent discussion (either by phone or in person at your discretion) that will provide you with important information about the obligations, risks and liabilities included within the contract. We will interpret legal jargon into commercial language, enabling you to make an informed business decision about negotiating and accepting the terms (especially in the case of non-negotiable contracts), which will allow you to focus on ways to potentially minimise risks and reduce liability. The service may include discussions on the specific issues you have identified in the contract, as well as focus on overall obligations, risks and liabilities included in the contract, and action you can take to mitigate your exposure.
