Court decisions and legislative changes are frequently impacting on the commercial elements of business.

One clear example of this is the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which came into force in June 2014. This legislation means that practically all businesses providing goods or services to consumers need to update their T&Cs - this is one of many commercial aspects of your business that we can help you with.

We can negotiate, prepare and advise on an extensive range of commercial contracts such as franchise, agency and distribution agreements, advertising and marketing, outsourcing agreements, software and IT, framework agreements, e-commerce, sponsorship and strategic alliances.

Whether you are talking to your customers, suppliers, service providers or other third parties, we can help turn your discussions into binding contracts, maximising their advantage and minimising your risk.

Examples of our work include:

  • drafting and negotiating agreements for an inventive worldwide advertising campaign
  • advising a national restaurant group with over 300 restaurants on its national distribution arrangements
  • drafting terms of business for clients offering software as a service
  • drafting user terms and policies for social networking platforms
  • licensing and franchising well-known fashion and retail brands.
