Commercial Contracts

United Kingdom

Commercial contracts are the fundamental basis upon which any business develops and grows. Getting it wrong can have serious consequences for your business. Whether the agreements relevant to your business concern the procurement or the supply of goods, technology, information or services, or your business processes such as licensing, distribution, agency and resale, you will need legal advisers who understand your commercial imperatives and can deliver results efficiently and cost-effectively based on market knowledge and experience.

We advise both customers and suppliers on all aspects of commercial contracts from procurement and supply agreements through to marketing, advertising, distribution, agency, licensing, franchising, collaboration and R&D agreements. We advise on simple heads of terms through to complex multi-jurisdictional supplier ecosystems.

Our lawyers work with organisations in all industry sectors, including consumer products, TMT, life sciences & healthcare, financial services, energy and utilities, manufacturing and logistics.

Our clients include both growing businesses and established multinationals. CMS’ wide global coverage makes sure we are able to advise on cross-border agreements while taking into account local liabilities, sensitivities and negotiation strategies.
