Commercial Lawyers

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.

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

Commercial law focuses on the legal aspects of (inter)national trade. Contract law forms an important part of commercial law. In principle, you and your business partners are free to decide what you wish to agree to. However, there are certain rules that have to be taken into account.

We organise our teams around sectors and industries relevant to you, including financial services, manufacturing, automotive, consumer products, energy, hotels & leisure, infrastructure & projects, lifesciences, supply and logistics, real estate & construction, technology, media & communications 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.
