Thank you for contacting us.
We will get back to you as soon as possible!
We help our clients to negotiate and prepare contacts that promote and protect their commercial interests, can be relied upon in the event of a dispute and therefore enable them to do business with confidence, both in the UK and internationally.
We care about the success of our clients’ businesses and view commercial contracts as an important part of their development, rather than simply as an exercise in legal drafting. Our approach is robust, commercial and pragmatic, seeking to enable your success rather than create barriers.
At Longmores we take time to understand our clients’ businesses and commercial interests. The contracts we draft on behalf of our clients reflect the issues that have real strategic or commercial impact for them.
Our experienced, specialist company commercial solicitors help a wide variety of clients to put in place:
- Standard Terms and Conditions
- Agency Agreements
- Confidentiality and Non-disclosure Agreements
- Supply and Distribution Agreements
- Franchise Agreements
- Hiring and Leasing Contracts
- Information Technology (IT) Agreements
- Intellectual Property Agreements and Licences
- Data protection and privacy policies
- Collaboration and joint venture agreements
- Outsourcing agreements
We work closely with you, your accountants and other professional advisers to ensure that you receive properly joined-up advice across the full range of your contracts and contractual arrangements
Examples of our work:
We helped our client, one of the largest suppliers of healthcare professionals to the NHS, to standardise and clarify its contractual relationships with customers. We worked with the client to review over 100 of its commercial contracts including employment agency agreements, services agreements and framework agreements. Many of the contracts were exceptionally complex and required us to negotiate directly with multiple NHS Trusts.
We helped our client, an award-winning designer, manufacturer and supplier or environmentally-friendly baby products to negotiate supply arrangements with major retailers including Boots, Mothercare and John Lewis. We also reviewed and advised on the terms of a licensing arrangement for their branded products with a major international supplier of baby products who would manufacture and sell their products in the USA and China. For our client, quality control was paramount to protect the reputation of their growing brand, so we negotiated hard for a contract that would alleviate their concerns.
We helped our client, a software business that provides services to the hospitality industry, to negotiate a range of contracts with new customers including the Gordon Ramsey chain of restaurants. These negotiations required us to work to tight deadlines to ensure our client’s products would be in place before the opening of their customer’s new premises. Our work involved drafting supply agreements, software development agreements and distribution agreements for the supply of software.
