Commercial

Our advice on commercial matters is never only about commercial law. We employ a multi-disciplinary approach combined with industry insight to deliver solutions that withstand commercial and regulatory scrutiny and provide clients with sets of conditions that safeguard their interests under regular circumstances or in litigation. In international commercial contexts we pay considerable attention to tax and customs implications, as well as private international law and treaty considerations that play a role in defining the appropriate terms of contract.

Our team has considerable experience in advising on a large spectrum of commercial contracts in both local and international contexts, such as:

  • Advertising
  • Agency and Representation
  • Assignments
  • Consultancy
  • Distribution and franchise
  • General terms of business
  • Insurance
  • Leasing
  • Operation and maintenance
  • Rentals
  • Repair and maintenance
  • Security Agreements
  • Service
  • Software development and implementation
  • Sponsorship
  • Supply and purchasing
