Commercial contracts

Our solicitors advise the public sector on a full range of commercial transactions from routine procurements for goods and services and franchising to major, complex, high value and innovative PPP projects.

We provide expert support for contract formation, drafting and negotiation. We also advise on strategy, risk transfer and bidder analysis. Our team of commercial contract lawyers are pragmatic and commercially minded.

For a number of local authorities, we carry out all routine contract formation work. This allows us to invest time in setting up integrated systems with the client to ensure their internal reporting and contracting codes are followed as a matter of course.

Our experts advise on commercial strategies, negotiating positions, tactics and techniques and provide training courses for both lay and legal clients on general contracts updates, application of procurement and state aid law (where relevant), commercial strategies, negotiating positions, tactics and techniques.

We are on the Crown Commercial Service (formerly the Government Procurement Service) General Legal Advice Services Panel (GLAS), and a number of other approved panels.
