Commercial Contracts

The main objective for our commercial lawyers is to understand fully your business and how to reflect what you want in a way that works for both you and your trading partner. Our team will invest time with you to find out what your commercial drivers and objectives are.

The competitive business environment clients operate in requires commercial agreements which are both flexible and robust. Having the correct commercial agreements in place is key to protecting the value in the business.

A balance must be struck between an agreement which protects the business in the event of a dispute, but also enhances value by promoting levels of performance and motivation in the other party.

Our team is dedicated to achieving this balance and always aims to provide clients with excellent response times. Our lawyers use their extensive experience, knowledge and expertise to deliver solutions which are innovative and tailor made to our clients' business.

Above all, our commercial lawyers understand the need to be commercial, focused and pragmatic while at the same time explaining simply the legal issues and associated risks so that all our clients can make a fully informed decision which works for their business.

our experience

We advise on all forms of commercial, contractual and trading arrangements from significant joint venture arrangements to the day to day issues that all businesses have to deal with.

Our involvement often starts with the early stages of negotiations documenting the confidentiality and non-disclosure provisions as well as the exclusivity and costs arrangements. We then work with you to document the deal.

We work with all types of business, both in terms of size and legal requirements. We are used to working on a retainer arrangement or with in house counsel, finance directors, contracts managers or any other team member of our clients’ business who is looking for guidance. Our client’s operate in many different sectors.

In addition to the above, we offer in house legal training and commercial updates tailored to our client’s requirements.

We also provide support and guidance on compliance programmes dealing with issues such as Data Protection, Bribery Act, Modern Slavery and Competition Law.
