Commercial & IT
Hi I'm John Walters, partner and the head of the Commercial & IT department. We have a wealth of experience in our team across a variety of business sectors in all areas of commercial contracting. Our approach is to try and make the contracting process as simple and painless as possible, by ensuring that we understand the deal and your aspirations so that we can take a commercial and pragmatic approach to fit in with your business aims. By working closely with you we ensure that you understand the contract and any related legal issues, so that you can make informed decisions in the contracting process to achieve your desired result. Before launching into any new arrangement its worth giving me a quick call, you may be glad you did.
Commercial contracts are the legal glue which hold together the day-to-day trading activities of businesses, from the simplest terms and conditions of sale to very complex arrangements.
Every trading business does deals, and the likelihood of disputes is reduced if all involved understand what they are agreeing to do, and it is properly documented in a way which everyone can understand. The process of putting a contract in place can help you clarify the deal during negotiations. Contracts can also contain valuable legal protection for your business in the event that matters don’t quite work out as planned.
