COMMERCIAL LAW

When a business does well, the stock eventually follows

Warren Buffet

Entrepreneurs, by virtue of what they do, encounter commercial law on a daily basis. Discussions around the form of business enterprise to be used or planning and structuring the wide array of contracts relevant to every operation is seldom an exciting exercise and it is certainly never a glamorous one. It is though, an essential one – particularly in a global market that is increasingly competitive, accessible and economically viable.

The hallmarks of any thriving business are built on and supported by its “back office” operations. This is where we do our best work.

All the conventional elements of an enterprise – ┬áresearch and development; marketing; production; sales and service; compliance; finance – have legal and other contractual implications. Clear and concise and yet comprehensive and legally current drafting is a central value in this department. Our view is that a well written contract is more a detailed “road map” guiding its principal into the future than it is a set of “rules of engagement” in a war.
