Business Contracts

Well-drafted business contracts make up the heart of Peddycord Law’s practice. Most 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
  •    License Agreements
  •    Nondisclosure Agreements (NDA's)
  •    Reseller, Distribution, and Manufacturing Agreements
  •    Development Agreements
  •    Independent Contractor Agreements
  •    Operating Agreements
  •    Transition Agreements
  •    Consulting Agreements
  •    Referral Agreements
  •    Executive Employment Agreements
  •    Share Purchase Agreements
  •    Share Repurchase 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, attorney Shawn Peddycord is available as a trusted business advisor. 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.

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.
