Commercial Law

This area of our work is all about providing advice and assistance to businesses, and other organisations, as they carry out their business activities.

Much of this relates to business contracts, but our advice also includes making sure that your activities comply with certain regulatory regimes - so that those business activities comply with and indeed make the most of the rules relating to the protection of personal data, competition law and European law, to name a few.

Increasingly nowadays those activities will be carried on digitally - so our advice is very often in relation to e-commerce and technology related arrangements.

Sometimes you will want to concentrate on the areas of business you are best at, arranging for others to provide you with ancillary services that they are more expert in - we have particular expertise in outsourcing arrangements.

Then there is the exploitation of your intellectual property and taking on licences to use the IP belonging to others; we can assist with that too.

We work best with clients when we are able to build a long-term commercial relationship with them allowing us to get to know the business really well and give strategic advice; building that commercial relationship with you will always be our aim.
