Commercial Contracts

Our commercial contracts lawyers act for a broad spectrum of clients from local businesses to international, fully listed companies. We work with our clients to ensure that their contracts not only protect them from a legal perspective but that they are also commercially focused and aligned with our clients’ business requirements.

  • Specialist purchase and supply agreements
  • Service agreements and maintenance contracts
  • Agreements for leasing or hire purchase
  • Outsourcing agreements
  • Information technology and e-commerce related agreements
  • Intellectual property licences and assignments
  • Marketing and sponsorship agreements
  • Consultancy agreements
  • Agency, distribution and franchise agreements
  • Transitional services agreements

Our recent experience includes:

  • Advising an international company on a broad spectrum of supply of goods and services agreements, HR and IT related agreements
  • Advising on a transitional services agreement as part of a larger corporate transaction, including a number of IT related transitional services
  • Advising on fleet hire contracts and ancillary requirements
