At my firm I handle many types of transactions and support activities of commercial transactions. Several examples of transactions are things like business agreements for sales of goods and services, supply arrangements, marketing agreements, resale or distribution agreements, or franchising deals.
The initial work usually involves client meetings where you discuss objectives and expectations for the transaction. Complicated transactions often begin with a term sheet that sets the framework for the fully negotiated agreement. We will then often draft term sheets and deal documents and review drafts and comments from counsel to the counter-party. They can also possibly expect to research regulations and consult with specialized attorneys in other practice areas to make sure that specific issues are addressed in the agreement.
