Commercial law generally refers to the laws governing a company’s dealings, interactions and relationships with parties such as its employees, customers, suppliers, sales and distribution channels, service providers, business partners, and other companies or businesses.
No company stands alone. Rather, a company is often defined by and is dependent on the strength and success of its relationships. However, commercial relations can be complex and may be subject to inherent risks with legal implications that may only become apparent when issues start to arise.
We can help you safeguard your company’s interests as you enter into commercial relationships with other parties. We strive to identify areas of concern before they arise, pre-empt potential problems, document your commercial expectations clearly and accurately to avoid misunderstandings and build in contractual safeguards in the event of non-compliance or non-performance. We believe that involving lawyers at the start of your transaction helps reduce time and costs spent fixing things further down the line.
We have assisted clients on a diverse range of commercial transactions, from sale and purchase agreements for goods and services, channel management, franchising and procurement, to leases, contract manufacture, advertising, marketing and sponsorship and joint collaborations.
