Our commercial law services

Commercial contracts and agreements

Getting the right commercial contracts and agreements in place is essential for any business. They help to define your commercial relationships, give you certainty over issues such as revenue and supply chains, as well as offering important protection for your business if something goes wrong.

These documents can often be very long and complicated, with a good contract or agreement expected to cover all potential issues that could arise over the course of a business relationship. The language used is also often obscure, making these vital documents easy to misunderstand or misinterpret.

Our commercial lawyers are highly experienced in dealing with all types of commercial contracts and agreements. As such, we can make sure any legal agreement your business enters into truly matches your needs and expectations. And, if something goes wrong, we have the expertise needed to help you achieve the best possible outcome.

We can help with all aspects of commercial contracts and agreements, including:

  • Drafting contracts and agreements
  • Reviewing contracts and agreements you have been asked to sign
  • Negotiating contracts and agreements
  • Exiting commercial contracts and agreements
  • Commercial contract disputes

Intellectual property law

Pretty much every business will have intellectual property (IP), even if it is just their brand name and logo. However, many businesses will also have much more complex assets, such as product designs and databases, all of which need to be protected and commercially exploited the right way.

No matter how simple or complicated your business’s intellectual property, it pays to get expert legal advice. This ensures you will be able to trade safe in the knowledge that your IP is protected, while also making sure you are able to effectively profit from your IP whenever the opportunity to do so presents itself.

Our commercial law solicitors’ fees

Cost is an essential issue to consider for any business and we want our fees and pricing structure to reflect this.

Where appropriate, we are able to handle some matters on a fixed fee or capped fee basis, for example drafting and reviewing straightforward contracts and agreements. This allows you to budget with precision.

For more complex matters where ongoing support is required, we will work to an agreed hourly rate dependent on the level of expertise needed. We will provide a clear cost estimate at the outset and any additional expenditure will be agreed in advance, so you always stay in control.
