Our Commercial Services Team understands the legal and commercial pressures faced by all businesses, whether they be small start-ups, SMEs or listed international corporates.

Our clients benefit from straightforward, common-sense advice tailored to their individual needs.

Our lawyers have the expertise and experience to advise on all areas of commercial activity, from contracts for the provision of goods and services with the public or private sector, through to complex intellectual property and technology agreements, joint ventures, outsourcing arrangements and agency and distribution issues both in the UK, and cross border. We also ensure that our clients are aware of the regulatory issues applicable to their business practices, such as consumer protection, product liability, data protection/privacy and competition laws.

Given the firm's strong international connections and its wide client base, our work will often include working with our clients' own overseas advisors, or coordinating with lawyers and tax advisors through our international network (IAG Global) to enable our clients' legal needs to be addressed in whichever jurisdiction they may arise.

‘I would definitely recommend them to anyone and use them again for complex, international transactions that required dedication, 24/7 work as needed, diligence, negotiating skill and the flexibility required to close. They also worked very well with City investor groups and addressed local UK issues smoothly and skilfully. Neither the client nor I could have been more impressed. I have worked with global counsel around the world for 30 years in deals covering more than 75 countries, and this team was among the very best.'
