Our services help clients deal with the entire range of legal and commercial issues that they face every day, including procurement, contracts, IT, outsourcing, intellectual property, data protection, and competition. Our teams are fully integrated with colleagues across the firm involved in employment, property, regulatory and transactional work. We advise both national and international organisations on the full lifecycle of bringing their goods and services to market, whether that is on commercial contract terms, or more specialist aspects such as international trade (INCO) terms, UK procurement and competition rules, State Aid and EU Structural Funding.
Documenting each party's rights, obligations and liabilities in a commercial contract is of fundamental importance. Failing to accurately and comprehensively document such details increases the likelihood of disputes and can also negatively impact a party's ability to protect its position if a dispute does arise.
Our commercial contract experts understand the practical risk areas commonly arising and we take the time to get to know our clients' businesses and the specifics of a transaction. This enables us to advise and draft in context, to develop robust yet pragmatic contractual solutions to mitigate against the challenges that are of greatest significance to our clients.We advise on the following types of commercial contracts:
- Supply of goods agreements
