Companies deal with a myriad of relationships and commercial contracts that bind them to their suppliers, customers, licensors, distributors and other strategic partners. Our commercial contracts practice helps structure these relationships and guide clients through the complexities to ensure their contracts provide the necessary framework for success.

The team takes a collaborative and innovative approach to delivering commercial advisory services, which enables companies to better understand and mitigate risk factors facing their businesses. We know what issues are important and how best to address them, resulting in more detailed contracts and more efficient negotiations. We combine sectoral and technical knowledge and expertise with the ability to craft innovative contractual solutions to achieve the desired commercial outcome.

Our contractual solutions are tailored to the circumstances of situations and our clients' objectives. We begin each new project with a pragmatic, flexible approach, drawing on our broad and varied contractual experience. We advise on all stages of the life cycles of a contract, from the procurement process, to contract negotiations, to enforcement. This allows us to deliver an effective and focused service that protects our clients’ interests and provides them with real value.

The team advises clients across a wide range of sectors and industries on competition / antitrust aspects of commercial agreements and behaviour.

They have a learning culture that is unique and I experienced trainees sitting in on meetings as observers (with prior clearance) purely for the purposes of honing their skills. I haven’t experienced this overall focus from other firms in the region.
