Your success is built upon the effectiveness of your relationships with both customers and suppliers. Sector-specific contractual arrangements are key to this.

With over 350 lawyers across 33 countries, our multi-disciplinary teams are trained to understand the cultural and business variations impacting your commercial arrangements.

We organise our teams around sectors and industries relevant to you, including financial services, manufacturing, automotive, consumer products, energy, hotels and leisure, infrastructure and projects, lifesciences, supply and logistics, real estate and construction, technology, telecoms, media and sports. Our webinar and knowledge services also ensure that you are fully up to speed on all legal and regulatory developments.

Whether you require advice on commercial contracts, supply services, e-commerce, IT or telecoms agreements, data protection, design and manufacturing, advertising, sponsorship and marketing, consumer sales, software licensing, outsourcing or sales, agency, distribution and franchise agreements, our specialists can guide you towards the best business outcome for you.
