How We Can Help

Every company, whether it’s researching biochemical processes or starting a new craft brewery, will deal with and use contracts every day of its existence. For example, this use of contracts may involve, non-disclosure agreements, employment agreements, equipment leases, intellectual property licenses, software contracts, purchase order terms, website terms and conditions, etc. All in all, contracts play a role in any business. At Hoeg Law, we’ve written, reviewed and helped negotiate nearly every type of business contract for companies varying in size. As a result, we possess vast knowledge and experience about many types of business contracts.

This knowledge of contracts may involve, for example, deciphering that two-page indemnification provision in your supplier’s latest “form”, to crafting something specific to the products and services you provide. Contracts are our bread and butter and also the lifeblood of your business. Thus, If you can’t figure out whether you want to sell or license, whether you should sign or refuse that non-disclosure agreement, or just how to describe the equity incentives you want to provide your employees, we can help!

Contract Law Representative Services

The Hoeg Law Firm helps clients with a wide variety of contracts. This includes drafting, reviewing, and negotiating the terms of various types of contracts. As a business owner or representative of a company, it’s important to have a well-written contract to ensure your interests are legally protected. Contracts our Law Firm commonly deal with include, but are not limited to the following:

Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA) – The non-disclosure agreement or “NDA,” is a legal document binding two parties to an agreement. This agreement typically involves “trade secrets” of a company, or other confidential information. If you’re involving a third party (such as a contractor)  in matters related to your business, it’s advised to have a contract attorney draft/review an NDA to protect the interests of your business.

Intellectual Property Licenses (IPL) – In short, an IPL allows a party to retain ownership of intellectual property while allowing another party to use this property under specific terms. At Hoeg Law, we’ve represented researchers, professors, and others in a University or research/development environment. This includes counseling and negotiation of terms for licenses they need from the University or other IP owners. Additionally, we’ve assisted companies in ensuring intellectual property they’re purchasing is flowing through correctly to the company.

Supply Agreements – Supply agreement contracts state the terms & conditions by which companies supply and manufacture materials.

Software as a Service (SaaS)​ – SaaS agreements are documents which dictate terms between a software supplier and customer by which the software may be used/accessed. Whether you’re the one supplying or purchasing the software, it’s advised to have a contract attorney draft/review the terms.

Employee Offer Letters – Employee Offer Letters generally include details such as salary/pay, job requirements, benefits, etc. We help business owners in drafting/reviewing these contracts.

Equipment Leases – An equipment lease contract sets terms between the owner of the equipment and individuals leasing the materials. This generally includes details such as: period of time, terms of payment, etc.

Custom Software Development – At Hoeg Law, we’ve represented a number of software developers or clients who outsource software to be made for them. We assist our clients in drafting and negotiating terms of the licensing agreement contracts.

Manufacturing Agreements – Manufacturing is often a highly expensive process. This can be especially expensive when the process involves heavy machinery. A well-drafted manufacturing agreement sets the terms by which the product is produced, the cost of production etc. In short, this contract can greatly reduce costs for a company.

Consulting Agreements – As the name suggests, consulting agreement contracts are between a consulting service provider and another party to which the services are provided. The document establishes legal protection for certain interests of a company such as proprietary information and more.

Purchase Orders – Purchase Order Agreements are documents issued to a seller of a product and/or service. These documents are issued by the buyer and include details such as quantity, price, type of product/service, etc.

Website Terms and Conditions – The terms and conditions (T&C) of a website act as a “contract” between the user and the company. These terms often include details such as copyright information, rules and guidelines of the website, and more. Website terms and conditions are different from a “privacy policy.” For instance, privacy policies generally include details such as cookie use/data collection terms, and other aspects to inform users of how the information they’re providing is used and stored. Other legal requirements for certain websites include: return/refund policies, legal disclaimers, etc. These website details may seem superfluous as it’s unlikely that many read them; however, they’re important in protecting a company from liability. This is especially important for small companies and startups that can’t afford the legal fees required for defending against litigation in court.
