Commercial Contracts

Commercial contracts govern the commercial relationship between trading parties. They cover a multitude of issues from simple terms such as the parties, the price and delivery details to more complex issues such as intellectual property rights, termination rights and compensation. 

For larger deals, the parties will usually negotiate a bespoke contract appropriate for the specific subject matter of the deal. Day-to-day business arrangements, like supply agreements, are often covered by standard terms and conditions (T&Cs).
