Commercial

Support for UK businesses doing business abroad

Helping exporters and other businesses

Our commercial team consists of lawyers specialising in banking and finance, construction, IT and e-commerce, intellectual property, public procurement and commercial contracts.

We regularly advise UK exporters and other clients looking to do business overseas, whether it be outsourcing manufacturing to China, appointing an agent in Canada or a distributor in Turkey, advising on trade finance and INCOTERMS, entering into a joint venture with a South African company or acquiring an overseas business in France or the USA.

In cases like these, as well as preparing and advising on the contracts, we can assist you in taking local legal advice on, for example, the legal requirements for doing business in the country in question and how to keep any relevant risks to a minimum, or in the case of a business acquisition, ensuring that proper due diligence is carried out.
