As businesses grow, the contracts they become involved in seem to grow commensurately in both in volume and complexity. Your business needs a transactional attorney with the expertise and creativity to craft the deals that will vault your business to the next level. Michael A. Colodney has been lead attorney on many such deals.

Mr. Colodney has negotiated and drafted numerous contracts ranging from simple sales agreements to multimillion dollar deals. His approach reflects sensitivity to current business needs coupled with a vision for the direction of the business. This vision helps entrepreneurs avoid settling for a good deal when the potential for a great deal exists.

The same approach applies to the standard review of form contracts large vendors so often present to businesses in “take it or leave it” fashion. New businesses are inclined to “take it” because they don’t believe they have the power to negotiate better terms. Mr. Colodney has helped clients attain better terms in these situations, and has the knowledge to help the client avoid pitfalls that handcuff the business down the road.

Whether your company is negotiating retail distribution contracts, manufacturing agreements, equipment leases, intellectual property licenses or media purchases, today’s business climate requires expert representation to protect and further your interests. Mr. Colodney brings that experience to the table for you.

Mr. Colodney routinely assists clients in drafting, reviewing and negotiating commercial agreements of all types. He has drafted, reviewed or negotiated hundreds of agreements varying in size and complexity, such as:

  • Software Development Agreements
