Commerce lies at the heart of the economy. Our Commercial team has a great depth of experience, advising on the full range of commercial arrangements. We work with our clients to ensure that they are able to maximise their business opportunities while ensuring that risks are allocated appropriately. We provide specialist advice in a clear and efficient manner.
Our expertise extends to consumer protection law issues, including distance selling and e-commerce considerations, and financial services regulation.
We work with clients and their in-house legal teams, operating at a local, national and international level assisting them with their day-to-day legal needs, as well as complex, large-scale projects.
Where appropriate, we work alongside colleagues in our specialist TMC (Technology, Media and Communications), corporate and banking teams. We also have specialists who focus on the Food & Drink, Manufacturing, Agriculture and Renewable Energy sectors.
