There will be times in business when your standard terms and conditions may not be appropriate for a particular transaction and a bespoke contract or agreement is required.
The key in these instances is managing your commercial risk and protecting your business against the foreseeable as well as the unexpected. To achieve this it is important that the terms of the contract are unambiguous and clear and that the contract is legally compliant and enforceable.
We recommend that you get us involved at an early stage so that we are on hand to help with the initial negotiation but also advise on any legal requirements. Depending on your business and the particular transaction you may need to consider legislation or regulations which prohibit unfair terms or anti-competitive agreements, distance selling rules or particular requirements if a credit agreement is involved.
