We advise clients on all aspects of contract law, including contract formation, negotiation, drafting, execution and completion, as well as termination of contracts and jurisdictional issues relating to contract formation and enforcement.

We advise on a wide range of commercial contracts, including the following:

  • Online terms of sale
  • Services agreement
  • Standard terms of business
  • Sale and purchase of goods
  • Agency agreements
  • Consultancy contracts
  • Website terms and policies
  • Distribution agreements
  • Licensing agreements
  • Confidentiality and secrecy agreements
  • Outsourcing agreements
  • Shareholders agreements
  • Manufacturing agreements

We act for the suppliers of service and products as well as those procuring services or goods, so we understand both perspectives for the purpose of advising on contracts. Many of our clients are SMEs but we also act for many of the biggest names in the UK and elsewhere, including leading online retailers and advertising and marketing companies.

We can be as involved as our clients need us to be in the contractual process, whether it involves advice on a specific point of law or when particularly sensitive issues arise, such as advice regarding guarantees, indemnities or warranties. For many clients we act effectively as in-house counsel, seeing the contractual process through its entire journey, from the structuring of the deal through negotiation to the finalisation and execution of the contract.

There is no formula for when, or the extent to which, we get involved. We flex and work with clients in a cooperative way, working with in-house teams towards our client objectives.
