We have accumulated significant experience, industry knowledge and expertise providing business contract legal advice. We advise on preparing contractual documentation, structuring agreements and disputes. Our drafting expertise is drawn in part from our litigation expertise, having seen what can happen when agreements are not drafted to take into account a business' particular circumstances and the specific requirement for the transaction.

We advise commercial entities of all sizes - from start-up businesses, small and medium sized business and to the large corporate enterprises locally and internationally.  We support businesses in a variety of ways. Our solicitors draft terms and conditions of  business,  prepare  contract  documentation,  advise  on  contractual   risk,  regulatory compliance, give legal advice in contract structuring, post-contract management and administration and identification of claims and resolving disputes.

Our solicitors also advise on establishing liability for breach  and   the
remedies for breach of contract. We  have  advised on a wide range of remedies for breach of contract.

Contract Administration & Management

We are regularly approached to advise in relation to the exercise of rights under existing contracts including the effect of agreement clauses; whether clauses may or may not be exercised. This in turn determines the scope of a legal dispute, its seriousness and measures that may be taken

The most contentious of these are where a party alleges a right to terminate or withhold payment. On the face of the contract this may well be the case, however much of the law is invisible - rights are implied in contracts, and the rules of interpreting the contract document by an experienced practitioner often is at great variance to an interpretation by one not interpreting such documents regularly.
