Limit your contractual exposure and risk - key ingredients to a successful business
Commercial Contracts & Disputes
Business Contracts and Agreements:
Our contract solicitors will prepare and negotiate the best terms for your commercial contract, to ensure that the scope of your obligations and the terms of payment are defined and liability is limited to minimise exposure and risk.
Have you been presented with a contract that you’re worried about signing? Are you concerned about terms, technicalities and/or language of a contract?
If cash flow is the lifeblood of a business, contracts are its immune system. It is vital to have a well-defined contract in place to protect your business and hard earned cash and to establish solid business relationships.
You will only know how exposed you are with a weak contract in the event of a dispute and therefore it is vital to mitigate this risk in advance.
Specific contracts that need sharp attention, include:
• Shareholder & Partner Agreements
• Standards Terms and Conditions of Business
• Manufacturing and Brand Licensing Agreements
• Distribution & Supply Agreements
• Outsourcing and Agency Agreements
• Warranties & Guarantees (Commercial & Property)
• Franchise Agreements
• Consumer Contracts
• Hiring & Leasing Agreements
• Confidentiality Agreements
• Intellectual Property
• Anti-Competitive Agreements
• E-Commerce & Distance Selling Rules
Our Contract solicitors are committed to finding the best practical legal solutions to protect your business, the Directors and the Shareholders with bespoke business contracts.
We will tailor your contract precisely to the needs of your business, to protect your position in crucial areas such as payment terms, ownership in goods, retention of title, delivery of goods and performance of services, and any restrictions on your liability as the supplier.
We will draft your business contract for a fixed low fee.
If you are about to embark on a new project, our contract lawyers can assist you in negotiating the most favourable terms for your business, and ensure that the contract is executed correctly and can be relied upon when necessary.
