There can be a myriad of issues when it comes to the supply chain that can affect your bottom line. For example, what happens to you as a supplier, when a wholesale customer doesn’t make payment for the goods they have purchased? What is your liability to a customer if your goods have been destroyed in a warehouse fire? How can you ensure that your resellers do not poach your clients? All of these important issues are addressed in your contracts.

Not sure which commercial contracts you need? No problem – all you have to do is get in touch with us and provide us with details about how your business works. We will provide a detailed list of what contracts you need to protect your business and a fixed fee. Alternatively, we can review agreements that you have with existing suppliers to ensure that you are protected.

Frequently Asked Questions

We offer fixed fees for the drafting of agreements, including supply, manufacturing and design, sales agency and reseller, distribution and trading terms.

However, it can be more difficult to estimate costs of negotiations as these may depend on the commercial elements to be discussed and agreed upon. Please contact us for a no-obligation quote.

In addition to clear payment terms, it is important to consider how non-delivery, late delivery, and the delivery of faulty goods may affect your business and your relationship with your customers.  It is best to specifically outline the process that will occur should the above issues occur and what compensation you will receive.

Your customer agreements should also be consistent with your supplier agreements, so it is best to get a full picture of your processes before having these documents drafted.

When it comes to the provision of services, it is important to have measurable specifications set out and clear remedies and termination rights in your favour should these specifications not be met.

Additionally, key clauses relating to confidentiality of your information and client details, a clear outline about who will be performing the work and when payments are due are essential.
