We work collaboratively with each client to draft and negotiate contracts that mitigate their identified key business and legal risks and pressure points while optimizing the client’s growth opportunities and goals.
Our advice is proactive, strategic, and practical – we work to tailor internal contracting best practices and risk mitigation techniques based on the client’s individual business model, resources, and risk profile as well as any unique industry considerations.
We utilize our expertise across multiple practices to address high-risk compliance areas, including the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and other data privacy compliance and legal matters, within the scope of the client’s commercial contracts.
We utilize Calfee’s proprietary reporting and other data management programs, which are developed internally by Calfee’s IT department to create customized outputs based on the client’s specific needs. We make the reports available to clients through the use of our industry-leading client extranet technology, which our clients tell us is a significant differentiator from other legal service providers.
