Contracts

Overview

The contracts working group helps clients understand and navigate their contractual obligations in the face of the business disruption caused by COVID-19. Knowing whether or not you need to provide notice to a customer or balance your production equitably among customers in case of decreased productivity can help you position your business for maximum resilience. By combining legal experience with the QuarterJack Contracts Analytics platform, our professionals efficiently analyze and extract actionable business information from individual agreements or from sets of thousands of contracts.
