Commercial Contracts

Contracts are the glue that hold business relationships together. We work closely with our clients to make sure their contracts are not only legally robust, but also commercially focused and aligned with their business ambitions.

We provide contract law advice on all types of commercial contracts – for local and international businesses, start-ups and fully listed companies. Our expertise spans service agreements, terms and conditions, supply chain contracts, joint ventures, e-commerce agreements, outsourcing, sponsorship, agency, distribution and franchise agreements.
