Commercial Contracts & Licensing

Commercial contracts play an integral role in protecting a business from unexpected situations and managing risk. It’s vital that contracts are legally compliant, watertight and clear. It’s about getting the details right.

Our expertise includes drafting, reviewing and negotiating commercial arrangements, from start to finish or somewhere in between, depending on our instructions.

We have clients of all sizes, from individuals and start-ups to in-house and commercial departments of large private companies. We advise across many industry sectors, including retail, health and beauty, fashion, the motor trade, publishing, recruitment, and geoscience technology, to name a few.

Our willingness to learn about our clients’ businesses and to develop client relationships means we can tailor our advice. We provide advice in context; realistic solutions to suit our clients’ needs.
