• Commercial agreements are at the heart of how your business operates. It is vital that we understand your business: the products and services you manufacture, supply or purchase; your relationships with customers, suppliers and partners; and your strategic and commercial objectives, whilst offering you transparent fee arrangements and value for money. A commercial agreement should help you achieve your commercial goals whilst protecting you from and managing any risk. 

    Our Commercial team advises large UK and multi-national businesses, SMEs, partnerships, sole traders, charities/not for profit organisations operating in a wide range of sectors including life sciences, manufacturing, food and retail, technology and communications, energy and renewables, agriculture, financial services, IT, events, education, travel, fashion and healthcare.
