Experienced negotiators who will work with you to understand your industry and the drivers behind your business, to help you to achieve the best outcomes

Summary

Having robust commercial contracts is of fundamental importance to your business – and to us! We advise on the full spectrum of commercial agreements both domestically and internationally, providing the best technical advice and helping to achieve your business objectives.

We believe that you should be able to take technical expertise for granted. What sets us apart is the business acumen of our commercial lawyers, nearly all of whom have spent time working in industry. Without exception, our lawyers have great depth of experience and will support you in achieving your strategic objectives. Whether you need advice to optimise your position on a particularly complex one-off project, or more general legal support across your business, we can provide focused, responsive advice to meet your needs.

Our lawyers advise on the full spectrum of commercial matters, including agreements for the sale and supply of goods and services; agency, distribution and franchising arrangements; sponsorship deals; software licensing; GDPR; and outsourcing. We will support you in establishing a new relationship, through contract management and variations, and in the orderly termination of contractual arrangements where necessary.

We offer pro-active advice to ensure that your business remains fully up to date with requirements driven by legislation, best industry practice and the wider political and commercial environment. In an era of fast-moving change, we can help you to set the pace.
