What is an Assignment And Assumption Agreement?

An assignment and assumption agreement transfers one party's rights and obligations to a third party. The party making the assignment is called the assignor, while the third party accepting the assignment is known as the assignee.

The assignor assigns their rights and duties under the contract to the assignee and the assignee accepts, or "assumes," those rights and duties.

The other party to the initial contract must also consent to the transfer of rights and obligations to the assignee. For a valid assignment and assumption agreement, the initial contract must provide for the possibility of assignment by one of the initial contracting parties.

I have experience with a variety of agreements, below is a non-exhaustive list of types of agreements I can help with: Supply Agreements Distribution Agreements Manufacture Agreements Service Agreements Employment Agreements Consulting Agreements Commercial and residential lease agreements Non-compete Agreements Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreements Demand Letters Termination notice Notice of breach of contract My experience as in house counsel has exposed me to a wide variety of commercial matters for which I can provide consulting and assistance on. I have advised US, Canadian and International entities on cross-functional matters and have guided them when they are in different countries and jurisdictions as their counterparties. I can provide assistance early on in a business discussion to help guide you and make sure you ask the right questions even before the commercial agreement needs to be negotiated, but if you are ready to put a contract in place I can most definitely help with that too.
