Our Commercial team combines detailed knowledge of our clients’ strategic plans for growth, with the ability to anticipate and identify the legal and commercial risks. This takes an expert understanding of the law, plus an enviably practical and entrepreneurial mindset. No structure is too complex, no ambition too large, or detail too small when it comes to putting domestic and international commercial arrangements into place.
Our lawyers provide creative and forward-thinking advice that ensures the perfect balance of commercialism and risk. We understand the drivers and opportunities that relate to each situation within the constraints of an ever-changing legal and regulatory framework, across all sectors (including Consumer Brands, Technology & Innovation, Manufacturing).
We advise on the full range of commercial agreements, including global distribution, franchising, agency, sponsorship, managed services and outsourcing, supply and manufacturing. Our advice extends to the regulatory context, including consumer protection law issues, embracing distance selling and e-commerce considerations, data protection, competition law and financial services regulation. We also understand the challenges that businesses face in meeting ESG goals and regulatory standard and can help navigate our clients through these issues.
Whether it is maximising your commercial returns in the present or protecting you when your contracts need to stand up to robust scrutiny, the Michelmores team has specialists to advise on robust, pragmatic and secure commercial arrangements.
We are recognised as a top-tier firm by Legal 500. Our commercial advice is holistic, meaning that we’ll call on the expertise of the broader firm, including Corporate, Banking, Data Protection, Employment and Commercial Disputes teams.
