We work closely with our clients in their contract negotiations, including providing experienced counsel concerning the terms of Master Services Agreements and Statements of Work and we assist in ensuring appropriate insurance coverage and indemnity provisions as well as clarity concerning deliverables and payment obligations. Our goal is to help our creative services providers enter into clear, concise contracts for their services, allowing them to focus on providing top-notch creative services and content.
