commercial contracts


Getting the right contracts in place to protect your business, your cash flow, your goods and services and your market share is critical.


nexus solicitors takes the time to understand our clients’ business needs to ensure our approach best fits our clients’ business operations.


We provide quality, cost effective and commercially pragmatic advice.


We can help you to negotiate, draft, implement and interpret all forms of agreements and assist with contract reviews to ensure that your contracts remain up to date and pertinent to your business needs.  We can also help you successfully to exit a contract at the appropriate time.


We advise on agency, supply and distribution agreements, including those governed by the Commercial Agents Regulations.   Our work in this area spans many sectors and disciplines.


We advise on terms and conditions, what to include and how to protect your business.  The emphasis is on managing your business risk.  We train businesses in the process of ensuring that your terms and conditions apply to a contract, especially where the other party sends out its terms and conditions; we advise on adapting your ordering and purchasing process accordingly.


We can also advise you on interpretation of your existing terms and conditions and those of your suppliers and customers; again the emphasis is always on managing your business risk and limiting disputes.


We advise many businesses on service level agreements, joint venture agreements, finance, hire and lease purchase agreements, product and materials liability and retention of title issues and many other contractual documents.


We are experts in the law affecting franchises.  We offer legal advice and guidance in franchising, covering aspects such as the territory of the franchise, royalty payments, expanding the business, guarantees, intellectual property issue, termination, the premises, audit by the franchisor, transfer of the business and restrictive covenants.


We can guide you through franchise mergers, acquisitions and disposals as well as advising on the financing aspects and the intellectual property in a franchise.


And if the worst happens and you have to take or defend action based on an agreement or contract, our litigation and dispute resolution team can advise you.
