Our commercial Solicitors can advise you on negotiating, drafting or creating contracts that not only meet your commercial objectives in these business arrangements with third parties but are legally robust and comply with both competition law and the rules of regulating agency agreements.
JOINT VENTURES, COLLABORATION AND PARTNERING AGREEMENTS
We advise on all types of partnering agreements from formal joint ventures to Memorandum of Understandings (MOUs), and other types of collaborative arrangements you may wish to enter into with your partners or third parties.
NON-DISCLOSURE AND CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENTS
Confidential information is a key asset of a business and its protection in pre-agreement discussions with a potential new partner to evaluate a new business opportunity, is critical.
TERMS OF SUPPLY AND PURCHASE
Whether you are buying or supplying off-the-shelf or bespoke goods and services you need robust clear terms governing your business relationship. These may be one-off terms for a long-term supply arrangement, a framework and call contract, or standard terms and conditions.
MARKETING AND ADVERTISING
We can support you on trademark and brand licensing issues as well as advising on terms and conditions for online competitions and other social media campaigns and compliance issues relating to your advertising campaigns.
Whether you are setting up a new partnership structure such as an LLP agreement or wanting to change your arrangements or exit a partnership, we can assist.
DATA PROTECTION AND GDPR
Our team of lawyers is experienced in offering practical and informed advice on data protection compliance, including advising on data audits, policies and procedures, drafting privacy notices and undertaking privacy impact assessments. Our work is both for domestic and international clients.
The outsourcing of services such as catering, cleaning or facilities management often demands complex arrangements that require careful drafting and negotiation. The process can often involve a procurement and our expert commercial lawyers can support you though the procurement process to ensure you comply with all relevant regulations and enter into a commercially robust services agreement.
Our Commercial Intellectual Property lawyers can assist you in the licensing of all types of IP from copyright to patents, trademarks and designs. We work with many clients who are brand owners who license their IP under sponsorship arrangements as well as manufacturing companies who are licensing or receiving the benefit of patent licences. We also advise on all areas of copyright law and digital media and have many clients in the publishing and arts world.
If you are a business that sells to consumers, your consumer facing contracts must not only suit your commercial needs but be written in plain English and comply with the complex legal framework around contracts with consumers, particularly if sales are online. We act for many clients in the retail, utility and tech sectors in relation to such contracts and can support on the issues which you will come across, not only around the terms of your commercial contract but the related data processing and compliance issues.
