Types of Commercial Agreements
Commercial agreements (whether in writing or otherwise) form the cornerstone of your business. They should reflect your intentions and be certain of their meaning, which, when achieved, could prevent a liability from arising or at least enable you to assess and protect against any possible risk.
We have handled many types of commercial agreements, including:
- Agency, distribution and manufacturing agreements
- E-commerce agreements
- Standard terms and conditions
- Outsourcing agreements
- Software development agreements
Should you run into a dispute over a commercial agreement, our dispute resolution department will be able to help you find a solution that does not compromise your business.
Commercial Hire Agreements
The purchase of equipment for a business can be expensive, therefore it is commonplace for technology, or large pieces of kit, for example, to be hired instead of purchased outright. This gives a business control over its cash flow while obtaining the use of equipment that otherwise may have been out of its reach. Commercial hire or lease agreements are therefore commonplace, but it is always prudent to seek independent legal advice, whichever side of the deal you are on.
The hirer will be concerned that (amongst other things) it is paid on time, has the rights to recover the equipment in certain circumstances, and has a right of action should the equipment be damaged when returned. It is important therefore that a well drafted hire agreement is in place to provide the protection that the parties to the hire require.
Why Do I Need Legal Advice?
In our experience, even if you are able to conduct commercial deals, taking legal advice about a transaction before negotiations begin can pay dividends later. This needs not be a long or expensive process. However, we are frequently asked to help clients to sort out problems with all sorts of ‘business relationships’, where some simple advice would have set up the transaction in a way that would have avoided a problem or dispute from arising.
Our Yorkshire-based solicitors will get to know your business – what you do, how you do it, what you want to achieve and how you want to get there. By doing this, we are able to facilitate the deals that you enter into to help make them achievable and profitable, while ensuring you have the protection required.
We have a breadth of legal experience in advising upon, drafting and negotiating a wide range of commercial agreements for businesses of all sizes, and are able to transfer these skills and this knowledge to a variety of business sectors.
