Expert advice and drafting of Commercial Contracts
We have considerable experience in providing specialist advice and drafting of a wide range of commercial agreements. Do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements or to consider what documents you should ideally have in place to provide proper protection to you and your business.
The two main areas that we focus on are –
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.
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.
