Areas of Practice

With 45 years of combined business law experience, the attorneys at Peddycord Law work with their clients on a wide range of business matters. From no-tech to high-tech, startups to mature companies, and locals to multinationals, Peddycord Law facilitates contracts for intellectual property transactions, acquisitions, strategic alliances, cyberspace transactions, supply and distribution, business formations, and other business solutions.

Business Contracts

Well-drafted business contracts make up the heart of Peddycord Law’s practice. With some exceptions, contracts should not be boilerplate or static. They should be crafted to fit each client’s unique business needs, and they should evolve as technology, legal rules, negotiating power, economies of scale, and other business influences evolve.

Peddycord Law has drafted a full range of business contracts at all stages of the business lifecycle. Examples include:

  •    Master Service Agreements
  •    Software-as-a-Service and other Cloud Service Agreements
  •    Software, Trademarks, Know-How, and other Intellectual Property License Agreements
  •    Nondisclosure Agreements
  •    Reseller, Distribution, Manufacturing, and Sales Representative Agreements
  •    Development Agreements
  •    Strategic Alliance Agreements
  •    Operating Agreements
  •    Restructuring Agreements
  •    Leases
  •    Buy Sell Agreements
  •    Executive Employment Agreements

Outside General Counsel

Running a business can be lonely. Some matters cannot be shared within an organization with people who might normally participate in the decision-making process. Acting as outside general counsel, and with a strong understanding of each client’s business, the lawyers at Peddycord Law are available as trusted business advisors in these situations. Under professional rules of confidentiality, any problems and creative solutions can be freely discussed. Clients are encouraged to reach out for any reason, including referrals to other professionals.

Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A)

Whether selling or acquiring a business, Peddycord Law can be a valuable part of the team. Peddycord Law can provide guidance and insight throughout the due diligence, contracting, and implementation processes for an acquisition or sale. Whether drafting, reviewing or negotiating letters of intent, purchase agreements, bills of sale, assignments, non-competes, and other ancillary agreements, the experience and expertise of Peddycord Law can help ease a transaction to the final signatures and beyond.
