Commercial Contracts

Terms and Conditions of business

All new businesses should have Terms and Conditions governing the way they sell goods or provide services. Terms and Conditions should be tailored to suit the specific needs of the business with consideration being given to the type of customer involved. A business should consider whether it trades with consumers or other businesses, since these different relationships will need to be dealt with in the Terms and Conditions. The Terms and Conditions will need to establish the obligations of both parties and care should be taken to ensure that all provisions are legally enforceable. At Berry Smith, our expert commercial team has a wealth of experience in drafting and reviewing Terms and Conditions and is able to assist all business, big or small, with all their contractual needs.

Advising on commercial contracts

Contracts are a vital part of every business and new businesses often need a variety of contracts put in place dealing with a wide range of commercial arrangements. Berry Smith’s commercial team can provide detailed, specific advice in relation to all business contracts, providing a bespoke drafting service where needed. In addition, the team can provide businesses with a comprehensive review service, when contracts are presented to them from third parties.

Our highly experienced commercial team advises a wide range of businesses on their contractual relationships and obligations. By providing commercially focused advice, our team helps clients maximise their commercial opportunities, while minimising their contractual risk and exposure.

Many legal problems can be avoided, or at the very least mitigated, by having correctly drafted legal documents. As such, our team works closely with its clients to ensure the best possible advice is given, whether in relation to short-form documents, or comprehensive agreements dealing with complex business arrangements.

The commercial team at Berry Smith appreciates that understanding the practical issues businesses face is essential to providing a comprehensive service. By drawing on a breadth of experience, the team is able to provide specialist advice in a broad range of different sectors.

In addition to providing a bespoke, tailored service when it is required, we appreciate that on many occasions businesses require more standard legal documentation. We can provide such a service at a fixed fee.

We are also able to provide a package of our services for businesses that have a recurring need for legal advice and legal documents at a fixed monthly fee.
