Whenever you do business with vendors, customers or anyone else, it is important to make a clear record of your arrangements. This will not only help you to run your company, it will also prove helpful if a dispute arises. If you are involved in a dispute, you will need to establish – perhaps even in court or through another form of dispute resolution – what the scope is of each party’s rights and obligations under the contract.
Our Commercial Contracts team is made up of lawyers with extensive experience reviewing, drafting and negotiating commercial contracts for domestic and cross-border deals. They also frequently advise clients on terminating their domestic and cross-border contracts, and represent them in legal proceedings if this results in a dispute.
We regularly assist clients with the following commercial contracts and clauses:
- Terms and conditions (B2B and B2C)
- Terms of procurement and terms of sale
- Contracts for service
- Non-disclosure agreements (NDAs)
- Partnership agreements
- Letters of intent (LOIs)
- Settlement agreements
- Term sheets
- Liability and warranty clauses
- Franchise, distribution and agency agreements
Franchise, Distribution & Agency
Franchise, distribution and agency agreements are a special category of contracts. The highly specialist arrangements contained in these agreements for marketing and selling products, services and/or a brand or formula demand extensive legal expertise. We help clients to draft and terminate their franchise, distribution and agency agreements in domestic and cross-border relationships, and represent them in legal proceedings relating to these contracts and their termination.
