commercial contracts

Commercial Contracts are the foundations upon which a business is built. Slee Blackwell Solicitors combine technical legal knowledge with a pragmatic and commercially driven approach. This means our solicitors can ensure commercial contracts are secure whilst being flexible so as to allow businesses to grow and take advantage of new opportunities.

The work we do

Commercial contracts can range from straightforward terms and conditions of sale to agency and consultancy agreements right through to tailored contracts for supply services. Examples of the commercial contracts our solicitors typically deal with include:-

  • Agency agreements
  • Distribution agreements
  • Standards terms and conditions of sale and purchase
  • Supply agreements
  • Marketing agreements
  • Franchise arrangements
  • Confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements
  • Manufacturing agreements
  • Licensing arrangements
  • Build contracts

We draw on the wide experience of our commercial team when preparing and advising on all these commercial contracts and other, more complex and specialist agreements.

Understanding commercial contracts

Sometimes reaching an agreement with another business requires a compromise between the parties. When advising clients on this aspect of negotiation we give a straightforward explanation of any potential risks in plain language. Our specialist solicitors advise on the level of risk in a commercial context whilst ensuring any clauses protecting the client’s interests are retained so that you can enter into your commercial contracts with total confidence.

Extra care needs to be taken when considering the exclusion and limitation of liability, consequential loss, retention of title to goods, intellectual property rights, responsibility for product recall and indemnities. Failure to do so can lead to costly disputes but with our expert knowledge and expertise we will ensure that you are fully protected.
