In order to provide a more efficient and cost-effective service we work, wherever sensible, from our templates. This allows us to offer very competitive and fixed for our drafting and negotiation services subject to an agreed scope of work, which also results in a quick turnaround time.
As our clients are often far smaller than their clients who try to impose draconian terms on them, we are able to conduct a RAG analysis in order to provide cost-effective, pragmatic feedback that takes account of need to keep costs to a minimum and of fact that whilst we need to protect our clients, we want to facilitate the deal not impede it.
Please see listed below a non-exhaustive list of the key high risk clauses on which we would typically most focus on during a negotiation.
