Commercial Law

We make it our business to understand what our clients’ business does, how it works and its relationship with customers, suppliers and partners.

We can prepare or advise on every type of commercial agreement, whether it be in regular use, or creative and bespoke.   These range from unique such as joint ventures, outsourcing, franchising or cooperation agreements or more common arrangements relating to manufacture, supply, distribution or promotional arrangements.   We advise our clients on the structure and negotiate deals on their behalf, working where necessary across international borders, taking due account of different legal systems.

Our clients cover a wide range of sectors including manufacturing and service industries, consumer products, leisure, retail and communications.

We know that our clients’ interests require profitability as well as stability and we assist them to meet the challenges that arise.
