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:

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.

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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I ensure that my Terms and Conditions (Terms) are incorporated into the contracts that I create?

If your terms are incorporated into a document that is then signed by the other party, then these are generally regarded as being incorporated. Commonly, this is not the case; therefore you will need to bring your Terms to the attention of the other party as soon as possible and certainly before the contract is entered into or performed (by placing them on your website, in brochures, on the reverse of quotations).

Can I use general terms and conditions I found on the internet in a commercial agreement?

The answer to this question is nearly always no. General terms and conditions, which might be used by any business, are, by their very nature, going to be general, making them ambiguous. The most effective approach is to adopt terms and conditions of business that are tailored to your business and reviewed regularly.

The cost of settling the terms and conditions is a hugely worthwhile investment when you consider the safeguards that can be built in, the risks that can be managed, and the liabilities that can be excluded and reduced.

Do I need to make a written agreement?

Contracts can be created orally, but can give rise to uncertainty, especially if a dispute should arise.

I have recently been sued for the consequential losses resulting from a breach of contract, is there any way that I can limit my exposure in the future?

Consequential losses are those which the parties to a contract would, at the time that it is entered into, have been reasonably expected to be the result of a breach of it. You are able to limit your liability by including an exclusion within your terms and conditions.
