Commercial Contracts



There are many day-to-day legal issues that will have to be considered in the running of a business, and almost all business transactions involve some contractual arrangements between the parties. It is therefore important that clients can fully understand the legal risks involved in a business transaction prior to sealing the deal, and ensuring that the commercial terms are properly documented.

We work with businesses of all sizes, and help clients successfully navigate the labyrinth of legal issues in their business transactions. Our clients range from start-ups who may be entering into commercial contracts for the first time, to established businesses that require day-to-day legal advice to enhance their stakeholder value. We regularly draft and/or review a myriad of contracts – from supply and distribution agreements to outsourcing and profit-sharing agreements.

By drawing on the multi-jurisdictional, multi-lingual and varied industry experience of our commercial team, we offer practical legal solutions and market insights into helping our clients achieve their commercial objectives, and minimise risks.
