Commercial Contracts

Every business has a network of business relationships, whether with customers/clients, suppliers, distributors, manufacturers, service providers or consultants. The risks of not documenting the essentials of these relationships – each party’s rights and responsibilities, price, payment terms, financial liability limits and exit provisions - often only become apparent when the contract ends or something goes wrong in the business relationship.

When clients come to us at this stage, the resolving of disputes, particularly where no formal contract is in place, can be time consuming and costly for their businesses.

Our Commercial Contracts practice is designed to work with businesses to identify the contracts that need to be drawn up to document key business relationships and to work with our clients with a view to protecting their business interests and limiting their financial exposure at the outset.

Our commercial contracts experience includes:

Our Commercial Contracts lawyers have experience of drafting and negotiating  a wide range of business contracts, across industry sectors,  including service agreements, manufacture and supply contracts, distribution agreements, franchising contracts, customer/client terms of business, website terms and conditions, consultancy arrangements, confidentiality agreements  and technology supply, maintenance and outsourcing contracts.   We also regularly assist clients to structure and negotiate complex, multi-party contractual arrangements, including on a cross-jurisdictional basis.
