Commercial Agreements & Business Contracts

Well-drafted commercial agreements are a cornerstone of many successful businesses.

The specialist Business Contract Lawyers at Rowlinsons Solicitors can assist you in putting written agreements in place so that your business benefits from the relationships it makes with suppliers, customers and partners whilst also protecting your business and your rights if a dispute arises.

Irrespective of your sector, normal business operations naturally call for a wide variety of commercial contracts, designed to establish protocols, obligations and responsibilities for all parties involved in a commercial relationship.

A thorough and well-prepared contract will not be excessively one-sided, but will seek to minimise the risks falling on you.  The aim is to balance any risk in a fair way and to establish procedures to be followed, should any aspect of a commercial relationship or any element of a transaction encounter difficulties. Our team will take a tailored approach to your needs and that of your business, ensuring your business is protected and positioned well for the future and for growth.

Why Are Commercial Agreements Important?

The risks of entering into a commercial agreement with a business on the basis of a handshake, especially in an ever increasingly litigious and regulated environment, should be very clear. 

Commercial contracts are there to protect your business, by clearly defining the terms of the operating agreement, and reducing the risks of commercial disputes and litigation.

Commercial contracts explain, in detail, what all parties are obligated to do in order for the contract to remain valid, and what the repercussions are should any party fail to comply with the agreed terms and conditions.

Certain clauses that are likely to feature in most business contracts are:

  • Confidentiality
  • Termination
  • Jurisdiction
  • Dispute resolution
  • Damages
  • Force majeure
