We launched our online platform, Quality Engine, for service providers and customers in the healthcare, medical, in-vitro diagnostic and combination devices sectors end of last year. We needed to ensure that we had good legal terms for our business, so we contacted Kelly for legal support. He took the time to understand our needs and drafted for us our platform terms of service, privacy and cookie notice. Our team really enjoyed working with Kelly. He was not only responsive, fast and friendly but was also able to clearly explain to us key legal issues that impacted our business. We are happy to recommend Kelly and his team at Logan & Partners for technology law and e-commerce legal support.

I am a registered independent freelancer and as the scope of my work has expanded, I was in need of a contract for my new, larger projects. I contacted Kelly and was so pleased with his timely action on my request for a concise and straightforward client agreement. I was under a tight timeline as I had a project already in the works, and Kelly was able to write up the contract for use within a week. He is an excellent communicator, and thoroughly listened to and applied each of the points that were most important to me in forming an agreement for my clients. I highly recommend Kelly based on my experience with him for small businesses and freelancers looking for simple but legitimate contractual agreements.

Philip Morris International
In my role as a procurement director at Philip Morris International (2014 – 2017), my team had the accountability to manage the relationships with business-critical equipment vendors. Some groundwork was done to draft and discuss Master Service Agreements that should simplify the process of daily business of PMI affiliates with these globally operating vendors mainly based in Germany and Italy. I had the pleasure to work together with Kelly Logan as PMI’s legal support to finalize these contracts. I remember two critical elements that made us finally succeed to get the contracts signed. First of all to create a solid trust among the negotiating partners from the vendors and PMI, ensuring that the intention was based on win-win conditions. Second, and that was probably more complicated, to translate the business intention and expected conditions into legally solid clauses. In both elements, Kelly Logan played an important role in discussions in house and with the vendors to define the right strategy, the right tone in conversations, and finally the professional expertise in Legal matters that convinced the vendors about the intentions of the contract and the final wording to capture that in a decent Legal framework. A very pleasant and successful achievement..!!
I have worked with Kelly Logan on several commercial contracts. I was impressed by his fast learning of business needs as well as by his tremendous support in negotiations. In a few words, I have never felt alone when working with Kelly. He is that kind of methodical professional who doesn’t dislike challenging the unbeaten.
