Commercial

We have a large and dedicated Commercial team with the capability and experience to advise across the whole spectrum of business and trading arrangements. Clients say that we go to the heart of what they want and achieve it, always going the extra mile to get the work done.

Our services include information and communications technology procurements, development and licensing; distribution, agency, manufacturing and supply agreements, outsourcing (BPO, IPO, HRO, FM, logistics), e-commerce, m-commerce and fulfilment, sponsorship and licensing, franchising, power purchase; facilities management, merchant acquiring and payment card processing, commercials JVs and collaborations, and performance management and SLAs.

We have a truly national and international practice undertaking the highest quality work as trusted advisers to FTSE 250 clients. We're deeply embedded in the retail, financial services, leisure, energy and public sectors, with dedicated commercial lawyers focusing on each of these areas.

Our sector knowledge and experience ensures that we give effective commercial advice in context and our agreements accurately reflect operational and trading reality. We also take into account the culture, ambitions and regulatory environment of our clients.

As well as providing project-based, strategic legal advice, we also offer flexible support to in-house legal departments and contract management teams on 'business as usual' transactions. This often requires a high level review of key issues or a bespoke drafting service, including negotiation support on strategic arrangements with key business partners.
