Commercial Law

At 360 Business Law, our commercial lawyers are dedicated to driving your business forward.

Commercial law covers a wide range of legal skillsets and is the body of law that regulates the rights, relations, and conduct of persons and businesses engaged in commerce, merchandising, trade, and sales.

We act for businesses all types from start-up to established businesses in the UK, Europe and the USA in a multitude of industrial and commercial sectors. We draft and negotiate robust and effective business contracts for our clients, from standard business terms to sophisticated large scale international trading agreements.

We believe in writing clear legally compliant contracts in plain English. Gone are the days where lawyers need to hide crucial terms under archaic legal jargon, which in fact can be dangerous as all parts of a business need to understand the terms to implement the contract.

Contracts need to be balanced and acceptable to your trading partners so that you can spend less time arguing terms and more time actually doing the business that earns you revenue. Many of our commercial lawyers have come from in-house positions and have spent many years helping sales teams conclude contracts on-time, especially at month and quarter ends. We appreciate how critical it is to conclude negotiations expeditiously to get revenue booked.

The quality of legal support you receive in making critical contractual decisions that can make or break your business, paving the way for increased risk or opportunity. Our priority is to ensure your business is protected from potential problems that could cost you in time as well as money.

Contracts are at the heart of every business, and are vital in setting out the way in which your company deals with customers and suppliers.

At 360 Business Law, we have a team dedicated to commercial contracts and can assist you through the following:

Sale and supply of goods and services

Whether you’re sourcing supplies or selling to your customers, your business will benefit from having a clear, contractual framework in place to ensure that your interests are protected at all times.

If executed correctly, franchising can allow your business to grow and expand to new markets, increasing profitability and creating opportunities for everyone involved. However, if you fail to meet standards or identify legal and financial risks early, it’s likely to have a domino effect on your franchisees and ultimately damage your commercial reputation. In order to ensure that you see a return on your investment, we recommend seeking advice from a qualified professional. At 360 Business Law, our commercial lawyers are experienced in providing strategic advice regarding the pros and cons of franchising, helping businesses to identify the obligations, opportunities and risks before diving into a decision. Our expertise allows us to advise both franchisors and franchisees through agreements, disputes, payment and compliance issues.
