Commercial Contracts

At the heart of every successful business collaboration is a good contract. The contract should anticipate the parties’ needs, provide appropriate rewards for success and provide the means for termination when the business purpose of the agreement comes to an end. In plain language, the contract should state the intent of the parties, and facilitate their goals. Nowhere is this more important than in agreements between multinational parties.

Our legal advisors will help you anticipate the ramifications of conducting business across borders. We will assist you in the preparation of contracts that recognize the practical side of international transactions. And we will make recommendations that recognize that not all business agreements have a happy ending, thus including terms that help protect you if the other party to the agreement fails to perform.

With significant experience in the cultural differences between Scandinavia and the United States, we can help you make sure that your expectations, and the expectations of your counterpart in the endeavor, are understood.
