Commercial

As a business operating in today’s increasingly regulated markets, you need to manage your commercial risk while achieving your business objectives. Your success is built upon the effectiveness of your relationships with both customers and suppliers. Sector-specific contractual arrangements are key to this. Not only do you need the right legal answer, you need it in the context of the market in which you operate.

In this context, CMS Luxembourg highly values to learn and understand your business model so that we can serve you better by adapting our legal services to the business reality and to your commercial environment.

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.  

For coordinating international distribution networks we can rely on the CMS alliance, which counts over 350 lawyers specialised in commercial law 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.

It is also worth mentioning that we enjoy accompanying young entrepreneurs in implementing their projects within a progressive legal framework.
