Commercial

We can help you with drafting, reviewing commercial agreements including sale, distribution, agency, franchising agreements and negotiating terms of contracts on your behalf. Our Commercial Law Team would be delighted to advise you on international commercial contracts, the laws applicable in various scenarios, the effects of domestic laws in global framework and representing your interests in business transactions. We offer our services for litigation arising out of or in connection with commercial contracts.

We have a vast network of legal contacts and should the nature of a transaction require, we work closely with lawyers of other jurisdictions for quick resolution of cross- jurisdictional disputes.

Our team has experienced practitioners who specialise in providing technical excellence across a diverse range of industries including manufacturing, retail, energy and resources, mining, health, hospitality, insurance, transport, telecommunications, information technology and finance. Our Commercial team advises on preparing contractual documentation and contractual risks, regulatory compliances, structuring agreements, drafting terms and conditions and directors’ shareholders and trustees’ responsibilities so that interests are properly protected.

Our drafting expertise is drawn in part from our litigation experience and understanding as to what can happen when agreements are not drafted correctly. Having an incorrectly drafted agreement or no agreement at all can be a costly mistake that a business or individual cannot afford to make. We take a commercial approach to contract drafting while still ensuring that it is technically sound. We are recognised for delivering excellent legal solutions to often difficult or multi-faceted situations within efficient timeframes.
