Commercial Law

No two commercial transactions are completely identical, so we don’t treat them that way.

Commercial projects, whether they be major outsourcing contracts for goods or services or terms and conditions for a small business can encompass a broad range of legal issues. We can deal with commercial and contractual matters covering a broad spectrum of our clients’ business transactions and in doing so we provide each client with the right person for their particular matter, whilst retaining an efficient degree of continuity.

Our Commercial Team aren't just contract lawyers: they deal with key related areas such as Intellectual Property, Information Technology, Data Privacy and B2C & B2B law and regulation.

Allied to our legal expertise is the commercial awareness gained from our work with clients across a wide range of industries, including: media, retail property, hospitality and leisure, marketing and communications, advertising, publishing and software licensing and development.
