We’ve had years of experience drafting carefully worded confidentiality agreements that protect the commercial interests of our retail clients. Having a cast-iron confidentiality agreement in place is not only peace of mind for you, it gives you the freedom you need to discuss important confidential matters with employees, stakeholders, suppliers, clients and associates.
Information about your business is valuable, not only to you but your competitors. To maintain the value of your confidential information you must plan ahead to prevent misuse and disclosure of your confidential information. A comprehensive confidentiality agreement or non-disclosure agreement (NDA) sets out what information is confidential and for what purpose that information can and cannot be used.
We understand the importance of protecting confidential information that is valuable to you and your business, whether it is a secret recipe, business processes and strategies, or details of merger and acquisition negotiations. Our team has considerable expertise in drafting confidentiality agreements for sensitive and confidential B2B dealings, including fundraising, sale negotiations and joint venture agreements.

In the very early stages of a proposed joint venture or business, it is a good idea to outline the key terms that will be included in a formal agreement in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). Usually an MOU is not legally binding, however this may depend on the wording of the agreement.
It is good to have a well-drafted Memorandum of Understanding because you do not want there to be any confusion about whether it is legally binding and therefore enforceable, or whether it is merely part of the business discussions. By specifically setting out that items are not intended to be legally binding, you are avoiding accidentally entering into a verbal or written agreement and providing clarity about your intentions.
A Confidentiality Agreement/Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) would be appropriate for a range of situations – it may depend on your particular set of circumstances.
However, they are particularly useful in negotiations for a sale of business, when a contractor is completing work in-house with access to confidential information, employment or potential employment situations and when dealing with agents, distributors or resellers. In these cases, you may not need a stand-alone Confidentiality Agreement as a well-drafted Confidentiality clause in your other agreements may provide sufficient protection and contain further protections such as non-solicitation or non-compete clauses.
