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).

We advise on a wide range of commercial contracts including franchise, licensing, construction, manufacturing, supply, distribution and Information Technology (IT) procurement agreements. We act for clients in diverse sectors including those in telecoms, IT, manufacturing, technology, software and media.
