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.
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.
Ian and is a partner & head of the commercial team. His experience covers all kinds of commercial contracts as well as many areas of trading and business law.
Cara is a solicitor in the commercial team. She has a particular interest in data protection and GDPR, and regularly advises on this fast changing area.
