Commercial Transactions

Whether you are a small business just starting out or an established major player, it’s important to have solid legal foundations and clear documentation in all your business dealings. We advise and support our business clients with all kinds of commercial transactions, a small sample of which are:
 

  • Standard terms and conditions

  • Supplier agreements

  • Major client contracts

  • Manufacturing and distribution agreements

  • Marketing agreements and agency contracts

  • Non disclosure agreements

  • Licensing arrangements

  • Franchise agreements
     

Our approach is experience-based, hands-on and practical, with a focus on protecting and growing your commercial assets and advantages. We consider specific issues unique to your industry; your business size and maturity, and the locations you operate in, so we can address risks and provide the best support for you. We aim to minimise your risk and provide strong foundations for your business to thrive.
 

We are sensitive to the human aspects of doing business. Our understanding of and respect for different cultural, corporate and personal perspectives assists in the successful conclusion of commercial matters we handle.
 

You may want a full-scale review of your standard documentation for a whole range of commercial transactions, from terms and conditions to shipping, insurance and payment terms. Or you may be embarking on a specific project and require advice tailored to that alone.
 

In either case, we deliver prompt, pragmatic support so that you can move forward with confidence.

 

Expansion, Restructuring, Divestment & Partnerships
 

Many transactions we assist with are about restructuring the organisation in response to changing business circumstances.

This may involve buying another business or merging to create a larger entity. Or certain lines of business may no longer fit with the overall plan, so you need to demerge, diverge or sell them. We support your legal requirements across the full suite of options, always with your interests in mind.
