After reviewing the contract carefully, you make your suggested edits. Usually this is done via redlining where edits are easily seen and tracked. There may be multiple rounds of redlining and accepting of edits so be prepared for this step to take some time. Every redlined item is negotiable so keep that in mind before you just accept changes without getting something for your concessions.
