          Business Contracts

          Every working relationship has a contract at its heart. Drafting and agreeing, often complex terms takes legal expertise and an understanding of your commercial objectives.

          Whether you’re looking at outsourcing, putting in place terms and conditions or involved in manufacturing, supply and logistics, strong commercial agreements need to be in place.

          Our team of contract experts are recognised for their skill in putting together complex agreements designed to prevent disputes, reduce commercial risk to your business and present opportunities for growth.

          Our experience tells us that successful agreements, particularly concerning outsourced services, depend on a complex balance between planning, accurate scoping and business analysis, day-to- day governance, flexibility, acceptable costs and incentivisation. That they are grounded in the development of strong, collaborative commercial relationships and innovation.

          Our commercial and IP specialists have a wealth of experience working for major FTSE 350 organisations across a range of contract matters including drafting and advising on:

          • Supply of goods and services agreements (including terms and conditions of sale and purchase and business to consumer terms and conditions).
