Business Contracts

Your organisation will frequently be presented with contracts to sign. So you need to be confident that contract terms work for your business and what you want to achieve.​

Our teams have designed different ways to go over contracts, from a quick sense-check to a detailed review. This tailored approach means we can provide a contract review appropriate to your budget and your risk profile.​

Typical contracts on which we provide advice include long-term supply arrangements; supplier and customer terms of business; agency and distribution contracts; franchise agreements; logistics contracts; software development; IT procurement; outsourcing contracts; and media contracts. ​

Where required, our experienced solicitors can help you negotiate more favourable terms, whether by taking the lead in face-to-face negotiations or advising on tactics in the background. We can also help your business overcome any contractual problems and assist in exiting from onerous contracts.

Regulators, customers, investors and employees are demanding that environmental, social and governance principles drive how organisations operate and what they report on.
To take advantage of the global talent pool, companies are increasingly offering stock equity to attract and retain employees. The equity is usually awarded at a low cost in a pre-IPO phase, and in some cases involves globally mobile employees. Granting stock options to expatriate employees can introduce important tax obligations and risks in the home and host countries that are sometimes not fully understood by multinational employers.
