Commercial Contracts

Every business deal you do is, of course, governed by commercial and contract law, and it is easy to look back with hindsight and wish that the agreement had been better and more fully documented from the start.

We are experts in drafting and advising upon all forms of commercial contracts, including:

  • agreements for the sale and purchase of goods and supply of services;
  • supply and manufacturing contracts;
  • computer and IT contracts;
  • advertising and marketing agreements;
  • outsourcing arrangements;
  • franchising agreements;
  • agency and distributorship agreements;
  • intellectual property and sponsorship arrangements.

On a day to day basis, we advise on the legal aspects of :

  • contractual liability and breach of contract;
  • misrepresentation;
  • sales promotion and trade descriptions;
  • trading standards and unfair contract terms;
  • consumer law, consumer guarantees, consumer credit and hire;
  • product liability and safety.

We also provide training services to our clients' employees in those aspects of company and commercial law that are essential knowledge for those conducting business activities in the UK.

In addition to the ‘typical’ types of commercial contract set out above, we are qualified in advising upon all manner of bespoke commercial contracts, in areas as diverse as environmental protection and tobacco litigation settlements.

Whatever the commercial situation, we will work with you to consider all the business issues involved in drafting either bespoke or standard form contracts.

In all cases our advice is not only of the highest quality technically but, equally importantly, it is commercial and practical. We solve problems and seek to add value by addressing the commercial priorities.
