Commercial & consumer contracts

Increased globalisation led to a reduction in trade barriers, which is currently being challenged by rising protectionism.  This, combined with borderless data traffic has profoundly changed the requirements made on worldwide commerce.  Although the legal framework is becoming increasingly homogeneous in certain areas, new players in to the marketplace and their associated national legislative systems have made things much more complex.  As a result, manufacturers, procurement departments, distributors and importers are all challenged by new national and international contractual structures.

Our international team is highly experienced, flexible and can support all types of businesses, from large multinationals to start ups.

We are able to advise you on every aspect of commercial law, whether you're opening up new sales channels, distributing or warehousing merchandise, establishing franchise networks, or operating R&D schemes. Our consultancy covers both day-to-day operations and strategic planning.

The team has particular expertise in negotiating complex contractual solutions for clients operating in the technology, online retail/ecommerce, fintech, media and communications, advertising, retail and consumer products, manufacturing and engineering, real estate, financial services and energy sectors.
