Commercial Transactions

FisherBroyles’ commercial practice encompasses all aspects of commercial relationships, large and small, including contracts, business combinations and joint ventures, and a wide variety of other arrangements. FisherBroyles’ attorneys offer comprehensive knowledge on many of the areas of the law that affect commercial transactions. From its inception, FisherBroyles has also acted as “general counsel” for a number of its clients, ranging from short-term or targeted engagements to a truly “outsourced” solution for clients that either do not have attorneys on staff or may need to augment their in-house capabilities. Given the range and depth of their experience, our attorneys seek to provide realistic risk assessments, rather than mere issue spotting, and presenting creative approaches to solving problems as or before they are encountered. Our experience includes the following areas:


  • Sales and Supply Agreements
