Robust commercial agreements that protect you, your customers and your business

Well drafted contracts are essential in helping to provide commercial certainty, protect your interests and maintain the value in your business.

Regardless of whether you are self-employed or a multinational company, the commercial contracts that you use are one of your most important assets and are fundamental to the success of your business. When correctly drafted they help ensure that your business operates smoothly. However, if they are incorrectly drafted they can result in significant problems, including the failure of your business.

Why Moore Barlow?

We will work with you to fully understand the legal risks and your specific requirements involved in your commercial transaction, both in terms of the day-to-day running of your business as well as those events you hope will never happen but nonetheless must be planned for.  We will document your commercial arrangement so that you have commercial certainty, your commercial interests are protected and the value in your business is preserved.

Understanding your unique relationships with your clients, customers, suppliers, outsourcers or third-party contractors is essential so that we can provide a legal solution that is specific to your needs.

Our sector experience and knowledge ensures that we are familiar with the culture and environment in which our clients operate.  A number of our lawyers have worked for many years in-house and bring this experience to commercial transactions. We have offices in London, Richmond, Southampton, Lymington, Woking and Guildford.

If you are a regulated business

If you are a regulated business, additional requirements may be imposed on you by your regulator which will need to be considered and addressed when drafting commercial agreements both with your customers and your supply chain.

As regulations change it is important to ensure that your current contracts are up to date and fully compliant.
