Anchored Law, LLC represents individual and corporate clients in the drafting and negotiation of complex commercial contracts, vendor technology contracts (including SaaS and PaaS agreements, license agreements, services agreements and consulting agreements), and construction contracts. We also offer litigation management services to corporate clients, and we represent clients in the resolution of disputes. By listening and asking questions, we help our clients  resolve disputes, achieve success and implement practices best suited to meet their individual needs and goals.

Having witnessed first-hand how valuable mediation can be for some clients, we encourage parties to consider this dispute resolution process when appropriate. Mediation offers parties an alternative to litigation that is less formal and gives the parties more control over the process and the ultimate outcome. With the assistance of a neutral third party, parties are given the opportunity to resolve their disputes in a relaxed environment. When successful, mediation can result in significant savings of time and money. 

Our top priority is to help our clients achieve their goals in the most efficient and effective manner possible. To that end, we maintain a practical approach in balancing business objectives and legal risks in contract negotiations and in the resolution of disputes. When matters are contentious and emotions are running high, we have the experience and skills necessary to maintain perspective and look for opportunities for resolution along the way to ensure that time and money is not lost. We communicate with our clients regularly to provide status updates and to ensure that our clients understand each stage of the process.
