Commercial Contracts

We use our industry know-how to anticipate risks and tailor commercial contracts to you.

Commercial contracts are core to our business. They naturally suit the way we work because getting them right means knowing our clients and their priorities.

It means building relationships, not just drafting contracts. It means knowing our clients’ industries and sectors inside out. We’re specialists in technology, projects, outsourcing, manufacturing, advertising and marketing, distribution, sponsorship, joint ventures, IP, licensing, franchising and eCommerce.

Making changes to your contracts can also be a great place to start if you want to become a more purpose & impact driven business.
