About
Hi! I am a solo practitioner at Tarshus Law Firm, which I founded to help business owners, managers and C-Suite executives handle contract negotiations like yours. In my 7+ years as a NY licensed attorney representing businesses worldwide as General Counsel, I've learned first-hand important strategies and tactics for negotiating contracts. I've reviewed many proposed contracts given to my clients which are heavily one-sided against them, and contain very unfair business terms. My experience has taught me that there is always room for negotiation when entering into a business contract, so long as you employ the right strategy. Contact me now,… read more and I'll tell you exactly what to do next.
