Our publishing contract negotiating skills are highly effective in securing the best possible agreement. We know what is possible. We know how to retain leverage and always negotiate in good faith. Once business terms and services are agreed, we draft a terms sheet and read and mark up the agreement, ensuring that the contract reflects the proposal and subsequent communications. Our work occurs prior to legal review by your attorney and always reduces the amount of time needed for legal review.

Even in today’s more challenging and competitive environment, we routinely obtain significant gains for and receive extraordinary appreciation from our clients.
