Eric Nanfito’s work in commercial contracting is targeted to help clients conceptualize, negotiate, and completely and accurately memorialize all aspects of their business to business transactions in written agreements.
Eric works daily with a broad range of commercial contracts, such as manufacturing/supply agreements, private label agreements, services agreements, construction agreements, and technology agreements. He advises clients through all stages of the contract process, from idea to execution. Many business relationships that appear simple on a surface level can be more complex than they appear, Eric will always spend the time to develop a thorough understanding of all of the moving parts to ensure that the final contract leaves nothing unaccounted for. He views his role as legal counsel as that of a transaction facilitator, not a roadblock, and he strives to guide clients through the shortest path to execution while achieving an acceptable level of risk. Eric’s goal is always to fully understand the unique business model, concerns and risk profile of each client so that he can act as effectively and efficiently as if he was their own general counsel.
Eric is also a member of Koley Jessen's Banking and Finance Practice Group. With many finance-related agreements, the worlds of commercial contracting and state and federal financial regulations intersect.
Eric's experience in these areas allows him spot potential regulatory hurdles and work with clients to structure their agreements in a way that is compliant with law.
Eric is a member of Koley Jessen’s Legal Opinion and Audit Letter Committee.
