Protecting your interests

Sound commercial contracts are fundamental to business success. Contracts are created every time goods or services are sold or provided; computer software or know-how is licensed; a distributor is appointed or a specific function outsourced. The Spearing Waite commercial team has a proven and impressive track record of providing timely, practical and straightforward legal solutions to help you achieve your objectives and protect your interests.

Having spent almost 20 years in-house with organisations including British Coal, Nestlé and Boots, our head of commercial, Ian Thomson, brings a genuine ability to deliver solutions that are both legally robust and commercially sensible.

Ensuring that the contractual arrangements entered into by your business are properly recorded, fully and accurately reflect the deal that you have done and, crucially, effectively manage the legal and commercial risks arising from the activities of your business, is of paramount importance: it is no exaggeration to say that these matters can represent the difference between success and failure.

In addition, we move in a world of ever-increasing and changing regulation. Whether specific to particular kinds of business – such as financial services – or more general – such as consumer protection, anti-competition rules, data protection and advertising and marketing regulation – dealing with the weight and complexity of modern trading regulation is increasingly challenging for the business world.

At Spearing Waite we have the expertise and experience to help you to identify and manage these challenges.

Our commercial team has a proven and impressive track record of providing timely, practical and straightforward legal solutions. The team’s ethos is built around building solid working relationships with our clients. We want you to think of us almost as part of your management team and receive the benefit of working with professionals who genuinely know and understand your business.
