Memorandum of Understanding for Retail Businesses
A memorandum of understanding (MOU) is a preliminary written agreement that provides an overview of terms to be formalised in a future contract. While they’re not always legally binding, they are a declaration of an intended contract and can be enforced in some circumstances. It’s therefore incredibly important to get the details correct so all parties are on the same page. This is where Gladwin Legal can help.
We’ve got years of experience drafting and negotiating memoranda of understanding that allow parties to navigate commercial transactions, relationships or deals while maintaining legal protections. If you need a memorandum of understanding contact Gladwin Legal today.
Declare your Intentions with an MOU
Whether you operate a small local business or large corporate enterprise, making sure your intentions are clear is imperative. A memorandum of understanding is a declaration of intent and to clarify the mutual interests and goals of each party.
Having a clear set of rules between the parties is critically important so that everyone is ‘up front’ about where discussions are heading and what the parameters of any negotiation might be. A MOU can be used if you are considering a commercial transaction, a business deal, fundraising, joint venture, partnership or any other arrangement involving another party.

Protect Potential and Future Commercial Partnerships
MOUs can be used to define the goals and roles of parties in a commercial partnership. Generally, breaches do not have legal consequences and it is up to the parties to resolve disputes.
As specialists in retail law, we get the importance of defining parameters and having absolute clarity prior to negotiating.

A well-drafted MOU is clear as to which parts are binding and which are non-binding so that you are not prematurely locked into a commercial arrangement. It sets out the terms, or rules, for moving the arrangement forwards including avenues to cease negotiations if something is not right. They also include protections for your business for any confidential and sensitive information that you may wish to disclose during the course of your discussions.
