Contracts for Services

It takes a community of service providers to conduct a multi-center study. We regularly draft and negotiate services agreements for the multitude of outsourced study functions.

More Than Just Boilerplate

We factor in critical “extras”:  FDA, HIPAA, anti-kickback, financial disclosure, industry norms, your unique study and the role of the services in your clinical contracting portfolio.

We Know the Services

We help our clients contract effectively because we understand what sponsors and sites each need and how the services fit into the clinical trial enterprise as a whole.

Our service provider contracts include:


Vendor MSAs

We regularly draft, evaluate and negotiate CRO, EDC, cloud host, core lab and CEC services agreements to name a few. If disputes arise, we counsel on quick, fair, amicable resolution.  


Consulting Agreements

Consulting agreements enable key individuals to play critical roles in the study. We draft and negotiate national principal investigator, medical monitor, regulatory consultant, study monitor and other consultant agreements.


Committees & Oversight

We guide sponsors on oversight committees and IRBs relationships, including drafting and negotiating DSMB, CEC and other committee membership agreements and IRB indemnification agreements.


We enrich services agreements with key concepts like independence, potential for bias, perceived unlawful inducements, financial disclosure, data privacy and cybersecurity and more.  Our work typically focuses on:
