Commercial

Our Commercial Group is one of the largest commercial law teams outside London and we’re proud of our unique blend of technical and commercial skills.

We love what we do and we’re driven by making the commercial deals that underpin our clients’ businesses happen. It goes without saying that we always want to get the best deal for our clients.

Everyone in our team has spent time working in-house either in permanent roles or on secondment and we put this frontline experience to good use, helping our clients to minimise their risk of disputes while also maximising their chances of success.

Our team operates at the nexus where law meets business.  We know your business relies upon its contracts: with suppliers, customers, distributors, agents, partners, service and logistics providers. We want to help you get those contracts right and we’ll find a way that works for you – whether that’s a lengthy negotiated legal text, or something much shorter – we’re built to be flexible and we’ll work with you to find the approach that most suits your needs.

Our approach is collaborative and entrepreneurial and we have the expertise to work on contracts to support supply chain strategy, logistics, distribution, outsourced services, commercial partnering, tech and digital.  More than that though, our advice is always rooted in the commercial realities of our clients’ situation and we make sure the advice we give is proportionate, risk-based and focused on the unique requirements of our clients.

Our experience is drawn from acting for some of the largest national and international businesses, to SMEs, owner managed businesses and right through to small dynamic start-ups.  This cross pollination of experience is hugely beneficial for our clients and the same goes for our wide range of sector experience, which we draw on wherever and whenever our clients need it.

We have market leading experience in the food and drink sector, pharma, football, manufacturing and logistics and we pride ourselves on adding value by appreciating the commercial risks and drivers of a situation, while our market knowledge ensures we avoid unnecessary negotiations.
