The Commercial Law team can guide you on the legal and commercial issues that arise at every stage of your business’s life and provide advice on the most suitable structures and arrangements for its activities.
Although, in the early stages of setting up a business, you are likely to be more concerned with the practical and operational side, it is equally important to consider the legal side. For instance, failing to consider payment terms and customer cancellation rights could result in time, focus and resources being diverted away from increasing the profitability of your business.
Our specialist lawyers have experience in drawing up terms and conditions to protect both you and your customers from potential disputes to assist in reducing the amount of time spent in dealing with such issues.
Depending on the type of business structure you decide on, a Partnership Agreement or Shareholders’ Agreement can also assist in establishing and regulating the relationship between you and your business partners so you can focus on the future success of your business. We have particular experience in advising on the use of a range of commercial contracts, drawing up agreements to ensure that your business achieves its goals whilst minimising and managing risk.
In addition to T&Cs and Commercial Agreements you should consider protecting any relevant forms of intellectual property such as patents, trademarks and design rights. IP licensing should be considered to protect your valuable assets, as well as your own rights and entitlements.
Commercial contracts can be intricate and complex but regardless of whether your business is a multinational corporation or small start-up business, we take the time to understand our clients’ specific needs and commercial objectives. This in turn allows us to provide pragmatic, as well as creative solutions to enable you to achieve your desired commercial outcomes.
The team is ranked as a leading firm in the Legal 500.
