We're experienced in creating and negotiating all the main types of commercial contract, from distibution and agency agreements through to cloud hosting service levels.
Every law firm will tell you that they work hard to understand your business, in order to give you sound, pragmatic advice and arrive at agreements that achieve your objectives.
But we really do. As business owners and entrepreneurs ourselves, we have a natural empathy with what motivates our clients, and what matters most to them in any situation.
And, based upon our very wide experience, we give proper advice; a decided view on your best course of action - if that's what you want from us. (Fences make such uncomfortable seats.)
We always keep one eye on the road ahead, too. If we can see an issue coming around the corner, we won't wait for you to ask us about the possible impact on your business.
Don't get us wrong when we say we are talented consensus-seekers. When the situation calls for it, we'll happily wield a big stick on your behalf. But we're never more aggressive or adversarial than we need to be.
Time and again, we've worked with clients entering into important agreements with much bigger blue-chip businesses, where there is an absolute priority to secure a good deal while ensuring that the minnow stays on the best possible terms with the pike.
Finding that middle way - the golden intersection of what opposing sides are happy to accept - really is an art. And it's one in which, over the years, we've become rather adept.
Although we work with a truly eclectic bunch of businesses, we have a particular focus on three specialist sectors: technology and telecoms, media and creative, and e-commerce and web.
If you're regularly contracting with customers or suppliers, our fixed price contract retainer service might well be of interest to you.
"Thank you for your excellent service throughout this process. It has been far less painful than others I have experienced due to your pragmatic approach."Ben Newby, Director of Business Improvement and IT, Bristol Water plc
