As an independent contractor working with a large corporation do we have any legal ground to negotiate contract changes?

You assume that you are an independent contractor. The independent contractor is a person works in accordance with a certain set of guidelines that you're driving for the company may or may not satisfy. You are always free to negotiate a contract whether you are an i independent contractor or an employee.
Lawyers here have not read your contract. We can assume that because it has no deadline and no renewal clause or other indication of how it is terminated, either side can terminate the contract at this point. If so, then you can try to negotiate. The company can say it's not interested and take it or leave it. Whether you were in employee or an independent contractor under the circumstances it's up to the company whether you will have a job
Harley Erbe gave a good answer. My question is whether you are an independent contractor or at will employee. Your question poses both. You can't be both. Do they send you a W2 or 1099 at the end of the year?
No attorney/client relationship exists until a fee agreement is signed. This is legal information not legal advice.
There's no way to determine your legal rights without reviewing the last contract you signed and the one you're being asked to sign. Whether you have leverage to negotiate a better contract is an individually-specific that can't be addressed through this forum. In short, you probably won't receive competent, useful advice without hiring an employment law attorney to review your contracts and overall situation and provide advice tailored to your specific situation.
