Commercial law reaches into all sectors. It is at the core of every business. With over 400 commercial lawyers across 43 countries globally, our multi-disciplinary teams understand the cultural and business factors impacting your commercial arrangements.
In today’s increasingly regulated markets, operators have to manage commercial risk as they work towards their business objectives. Success depends on fruitful relationships with customers and suppliers, based on effective, sector-specific contracts. Wherever you operate, your business needs the right legal advice and support, based upon in-depth understanding of your specific markets.
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, life sciences, supply and logistics, real estate and construction, technology, telecoms, media and sports.
Whatever advice you need, we can help you achieve the optimum outcome for your business. Whether for 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 or distribution and franchise agreements, we aim to find the best solution for you.
