Commercial We maximize your business’ performance, and mitigate the risk

We believe that you should expect more from your commercial lawyers than simply negotiation of contracts We place importance on recruiting lawyers with genuine business acumen  – over 90% of our lawyers have direct in-house legal experience.

Our Commercial team advises company owners, directors and in-house counsel. Our partners all share the same goal - to help your business run as efficiently as possible. We will work to expand your business and assist with manufacturing, licensing, distribution and sale and supply for clients both domestically and internationally; with links to firms in other territories who will also operate within our fixed fee business model. 

We want to help you structure commercial agreements that enhance the profitability of your business, to negotiate contracts that you’d be happy for your granny to sign, to ensure that we’re constantly re-evaluating the way that your commercial terms could be supporting the business better and allowing your ambitious business plans to be developed with good legal guidance.

  • Maximising your business' efficiency
