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.
What is commercial contract law?
Commercial contract law refers to the legal rules and regulations that govern the formation, interpretation, and enforcement of contracts between businesses or individuals engaged in commercial activities. It covers a wide range of topics, including contract formation, performance, breach, remedies, and dispute resolution.

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.
