Contracts Negotiation

Assentia is a robust and proven investigator contracting organization composed of a global team that has years of experience negotiating with sites ranging from small clinics to large, multicenter academic institutions. The processes implemented and the tenured knowledge of the team enables Assentia to offer this service that is second to none in the industry.  Find out what sets us apart below.

Global Footprint

We are global.  We have a unique ability to negotiate across the world, with experienced lawyers located in 65 countries.  Our global attorneys have been trained in the nuanced legal language of their geographic region.


Our team possesses a robust library of country-specific templates that are designed to combine ease of negotiation with protection of the legal interests of our customers. Where appropriate, our templates are translated and in dual column for review. In addition to containing references to country-specific laws structured to accommodate local customs, our templates contemplate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Anti-Bribery Act. We also provide detailed back-up provisions that will be modified with you to suit your needs in order to decrease time to execution upon negotiation commencement. 

Rapid Execution

Assentia reduces the burden on a customer's internal legal and clinical processes. We differentiate ourselves from traditional Pharma and CRO contracting conventions with speed, while maintaining and protecting our customers legal and business interests. We have broken each CTA down into functionally separate components, allowing us to negotiate the legal language of each contract with licensed attorneys.  Simultaneously, we negotiate budgets with clinically trained associates. Because we are specialists, Assentia is able to more adequately represent our customers’ legal and budgetary positions, reducing the time spent in study startup.


Some of our customers may prefer to use their own templates. In these cases, and before we begin negotiation, our experienced attorneys can review your templates to help determine if there are any provisions that will delay negotiation in any country or at any site.  We can then develop fallback provisions with you to help expedite negotiations.
