Commercial agreements are about managing risk and accurately reflecting your relationship with your suppliers and customers. Ensuring that their terms are well drafted, gives you peace of mind, as well as managing risk and avoiding disputes.

Whether you are looking to expand your services into international markets or are considering the merits of setting up a franchise, our experienced team of commercial solicitors can provide practical, pragmatic advice. 

Our team advise clients across a broad range of sectors, providing guidance to manufacturers, retailers, service businesses, public sector organisations and sporting bodies, with a keen eye on protecting your commercial interests, now and in the future.

Our team can help you with:

Collaboration and joint venture agreements

We provide guidance to stakeholders and partners on their relationships, advising how to document the way they and their businesses will operate. These documents not only set out what is currently agreed but also plan for the future, considering different scenarios to ensure smooth operation.

Supply agreements

It is important that agreements with both suppliers and customers reflect the true basis upon which parties are dealing in the sale and supply of goods and services. From bespoke contracts to standard terms and conditions of business, we can ensure your agreements allow your business to operate properly, giving you peace of mind.

Terms and Conditions

A standard set of terms and conditions for your business adds more than just protection against claims. It also aids debt recovery, particularly against insolvent parties, protects your intellectual property and limits your liability in the event the relationship breaks down.

Consumer Protection

Due to the protections and significant rights afforded to consumers, it is important that agreements dealing with them are prepared in line with the relevant legislation, whether you interact directly or online.

Agency and Distribution

The appointment of an agent or distributor can provide access to a wealth of experience and open up new markets to growing businesses. For the agent or distributor, this can establish a relationship with a large brand that can continue for years. EU regulation means it’s imperative that agreements are drafted by experienced advisers.

Franchise Agreements

Franchising is a tool for growth and provides an opportunity to enter into new markets, giving the franchisee access to the experience and knowledge of an established business. Our team can assist in all aspects, from the preparation of the franchise agreement and establishment of rights to arrangement renewal and franchise disputes.

Public Sector – Procurements and Contracting

Whilst securing work with public sector organisations can prove fruitful, the tendering process can be daunting. Our team are able to assist you in applying for opportunities, along with ensuring you have the correct policies and documents in place to be successful.

Data Protection and privacy

Data protection and privacy laws affect almost all businesses, with the penalties for non-compliance becoming increasingly severe. Our team has a wealth of experience in all aspects of UK data protection and privacy laws, including data security and data controller/processor issues. We draft and advise on privacy policies, data collection processes, data management policies and data sharing agreements.

Training and Audits

It’s vital that those responsible for contracting on behalf of your business are fully informed about best practice. We work with your team to provide training and guidance so they are best equipped to carry out their roles and use documents prepared for the benefit of your business.
