A Holistic Approach to

Commercial Law

To succeed, it’s important for commercial contracts to take into account how a business operates in practice, what obligations it has and any exposure to liability. Some transactions may span different areas of law and have an international element - so specialist legal advice is needed to keep your interests protected and your business primed for growth.

As a full-service law firm, Thursfields has extensive experience across a range of sectors, including telecoms, IT and media, agriculture, manufacturing, retail, professional services and healthcare. We’ve worked with businesses of all sizes, from family enterprises to national corporations. We are here to advise. 

Commercial Law Advice for a Range of Sectors

How an industry or profession operates has a direct impact on the type of contracts a business will require, and the regulations it needs to follow. An in-depth understanding of these challenges is needed to ensure the legal advice you receive will benefit your company. This is what Thursfields offers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Commercial agreements are legally-binding contracts between two or more parties. They explicitly set out what will be expected from each entity to uphold their side of the deal, and outline steps that may be taken if they fail to do so. These agreements will most commonly be in writing, however they can also be in verbal form.

When negotiating commercial contracts, you should first of all do your research. Make sure you and the person you’re negotiating with have authority to do so, and that the necessary due diligence has taken place. You will also need to be clear on the terms of the contract, the risks involved, and if there’s anything that must be kept confidential.

Once the agreement has been drawn up, it should be carefully reviewed to ensure it’s fit for purpose and the interests of your business are protected. If you’re ever unsure, seeking legal advice should be your top priority.

There are a number of key contract terms that will appear in the majority of commercial agreements. These include requirements for performance or delivery, payment terms, force majeure, confidentiality, dispute resolution measures, what a party’s liability is if things go wrong, and grounds for termination. If you’re ever unsure about these terms and how they might affect your business, it’s essential to seek legal advice at your earliest opportunity.
