Our dedicated team
- delivers commercial deals - from complex joint ventures to sales and distribution networks
- solves commercial issues - balancing rules and regulations, risks and revenue.
Your business is our focus. We work in the engine room - understanding what your business does, how it works and its relationships with customers, suppliers and partners.
We know every type of commercial agreement from the commonplace to the innovative where no precedent exists. This ranges from substantial one-off contracts such as outsourcing, joint ventures, project development agreement and strategic alliances to regular manufacture, supply, distribution, sale or advertising and promotional arrangements. We devise the right structure and negotiate the right deal.
We work effectively across international borders and understand that one size does not fit all in a world of complex multi-jurisdictional business.
Our lawyers know how regulation, such as advertising and promotion, food labelling, packaging, presentation and sale of food and other consumer products, privacy, health and safety, drugs and medical devices, as well as environmental and chemicals laws, affects the way businesses work. We work closely with our Government Regulatory practice and our other industry sector lawyers. Our advice focuses on helping you pursue your business objectives most effectively taking account of the rules.
Our clients cover a wide range of manufacturing and service industries, including consumer products, life sciences, food and beverages, leisure, retail, education, media and communications, automotive, transport and logistics, aerospace and defence. We advise the public and private sectors and at the interface between them. We look at contracts both in their own right and as part of complex M&A and financing transactions.
We know your core challenge is to drive revenue and configure your business efficiently whilst effectively managing the associated risks. Our mission is to help you meet that challenge.
