CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENT (NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT “NDA”) REVIEW

A Confidentiality Agreement also known as a Non-Disclosure Agreement or NDA, are often executed as the first step in discussions between companies and individuals looking to explore a business relationship. They are used in many different contexts – from RFPs for products or services, to discussions around mergers, acquisitions, and investments. The non-disclosure agreement is created to protect any information discussed that may be confidential in nature or not yet released to the public. This information usually plays an important role in the transactional discussions and negotiations between both parties involved as part of the due diligence process. The Baer Reed legal team can seamlessly integrate within your legal department to manage, review, edit, negotiate, track, and complete NDAs in a timely manner. Our NDA review and management services provide the flexibility to allow you to create the process that best fits your needs and significantly reduce the overall time spent on NDA review.

REAL ESTATE DUE DILIGENCE

For any purchase of property, especially large commercial portfolio acquisitions, real estate due diligence is a critical part of completing the transaction. The process of performing real estate due diligence includes several steps. It requires lawyers to look through many documents involving the property subject to acquisition. These documents include title documents, zoning reports, and restriction agreements covering the property. Another key component of any real estate due diligence project is reviewing the title insurance agreement covering the property.

Baer Reed’s team members are experts at spotting issues related to property titles, zoning reports, any easements or covenants, and any other rights or obligations arising from the transaction documents.
