Almost all of our business clients will find themselves needing to enter into contracts from time to time and it is vital that the terms suit you from both a commercial and legal perspective – this is where we can help you.
It is also important to remember that contracts do not need to be in writing to have legal effect and therefore we recommend ensuring the terms agreed between you and the other party are in written form to give clarity to everyone involved.
Why commercial agreements are important
If you have a business which provide goods and services (including online) it is crucial that you have clear terms and conditions of trade setting how you will do business. They will cover key terms such as price, timings of delivery and payment and what should happen in the event that one party does not meet their obligations.
Disputes are costly and best avoided. Having well drafted and appropriate terms and conditions and contracts at the outset is much more cost effective than taking legal action. Where appropriate we consult with our other specialist teams to ensure that all aspects of your business are covered.
Everyone hopes that there is never any need to revisit a contract once it has been signed, however, having a full written record of what has been agreed can act as an ‘insurance’ if things do not go quite the way you hoped and can provide certainty as to how the relationship should be brought to an end and the responsibilities of the parties.
