Negotiating contracts and agreements

We work with you to negotiate contracts and prepare agreements, drafting clear and comprehensive documentation that will help you achieve your commercial and financial objectives while minimising your exposure to risk.

These negotiations may be concerned with:

  • Setting up your business
  • Partnership and shareholder agreements
  • Terms and conditions of business
  • Acquiring and disposing of a business
  • Mergers or MBOs
  • Restructuring your business
  • Employment contracts
  • Finance and security
  • Buying and selling assets
  • Supply and maintenance agreements 
  • Joint Ventures
  • Agency, franchise or distribution agreements

These matters are rarely considered in isolation from the day-to-day running of your business. We will always look at the consequences of a course of action before making any recommendation, for example in relation to employment undertakings, property requirement and shareholder agreements.

In business, success often hinges on a small number of key contracts. We will ensure that these contracts are legally enforceable, that the protection they give meets your needs and, if there should be a breach, the consequences are properly addressed. Our task is the same whether we are negotiating and drafting theses contacts or reviewing contracts drafted by others and already in operation.
