Conducting business successfully is dependent on having the right commercial contracts in place that take appropriate account of the requirements of the business and balance the rights and obligations properly between the parties. Having well structured contractual arrangements in place provides clarity and manages opportunities and risks between parties, which is essential to good commercial dealings and brings peace of mind.

Our commercial lawyers bring business wisdom and foresight to any transaction, derived from many years’ experience of advising all types of businesses including having acted as in-house Counsel. Our lawyers are experienced in considering the wider commercial context in which transactions are entered into, taking into account commercial objectives and advising companies in order to ensure the effectiveness of their contractual arrangements.

Our commercial lawyers are experienced across a broad range of sectors and types of contract including online, drafting and negotiating contracts, advising on general terms and conditions and carrying out risk reviews. The expertise within the firm is supported by collaboration between our lawyers across practice areas and sectors, to bring practical solutions for our clients.
