Commercial contracting and technology are key areas of concern for all business enterprises. At Maynard Nexsen, we have formed a dedicated team focused on managing all aspects of contract preparation, review, negotiation and administration. Our goal is to provide comprehensive services to clients whenever opportunities arise on both the provider-side and the procurement-side of goods & services, software, technology and IP commercial transactions, allowing our clients to increase revenue, comply with regulatory requirements and mitigate risks.

Our team brings years of experience to the table, allowing them to work closely with clients to support and protect their business objectives and investments. We routinely assist clients with preparation of form contracts and establishing contracting and licensing programs and procedures that further their business goals while protecting valuable intellectual property and data. We also develop and negotiate customized contracts for unique transactions that allow our clients to take advantage of novel opportunities. The complex nature of most contracts requires attention to detail and a deep understanding of the nuances of commercial transactions, as well as the client’s individualized business needs.

When we require specialized regulatory and compliance assistance with contracts, we partner with other practice groups at the firm, including Cybersecurity & Privacy, Government & Regulatory Affairs, Compliance & Risk Management and Intellectual Property.
