We can help you with drafting and negotiating key commercial contracts which are core to your business so they deliver the value that you need- whatever your industry sector.
We have substantial experience and expertise in advising on all types of agreements including:
- Strategic supply and purchase arrangements for goods (including standard terms, agency and distribution arrangements in the UK and cross border)
- IT, e-commerce as well as intellectual property related agreements
- Collaboration and joint venture agreements
- Services agreements (including performance regimes)
- Outsourcing agreements
- Franchise agreements
- Regulatory advice
We understand that having effective and enforceable agreements and standard terms will give you confidence in your dealings with both your customers and suppliers. We will help to ensure that key commercial relationships are conducted for the benefit of your business on terms you understand and that your business has the underlying legal protection required. Where others attempt to impose their terms on your business we can help you to identify key risks and exposure and negotiate a compromise.
Commercial law is a diverse area and we are able to draw from our experience in a range of sectors including engineering, manufacturing, food, drink, travel (including rail), automotive, logistics, broadcasting and IT. We act for a range of clients from large companies to small, owner managed businesses, all of whom can expect a high level of service.
Some types of work we will have done many times before but we are equally happy to help you to find solutions to new challenges by adapting our expertise to your situation. Our approach is commercial and practical and we like to get to know your business – our clients regularly pick up the phone to us for one off advice and discussion which also helps us to understand your day to day issues.
