Commercial

Our advice on commercial matters is never only about commercial law. Solid contracts provide clarity between business partners, but practical and comprehensive drafting ensures that the business transaction runs smoothly and the contract is likely to never be taken out of its filing folder.

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 can safeguard their interests whether under normal circumstances or in litigation while maintaining practicality and fostering a trusting relationship between the business partners.

We frequently help clients who are taking their businesses abroad or expanding into our jurisdiction. Where relevant, we pay considerable attention to tax and customs implications, to multi-jurisdictional antitrust regulations, and to the private international law and treaty considerations that play an important role in defining the appropriate terms of a contract.
