Commercial contracts

Good contracts help protect businesses. Tees can write and review your contracts to make sure they’re working for you and not against you.

Jane Winfield, Brentwood

Most businesses rely on commercial contracts to formalise their relationship with customers and other businesses. Your contract sets out what you can expect from one another, and what your obligations and responsibilities are. Because legal contracts are legally eforceable, it's vital that you can rely on them to look after your interests.

Tees can support your business through every aspect of a commercial contract. Whether you need advice about an existing contract, or assistance drawing up a new one - we cover it all.

Expert support for businesses

Tees suports a diverse range of clients, from local businesses to large corporations. Our commercial contracts solicitors have the expertise, and breadth of experience, to give you the best possible advice. Most importantly, we're committed one-hundred percent to safeguarding your interests.

We protect your business by really drilling down into the detail of your contracts. We look at every angle, and consider every outcome. We'll identify any potential problems at an early stage - and put them right. So you can avoid risks, and the associated costs and disruption, before they arise.

How we work

Investing in a well-drafted contract at the start could save you a lot of money down the line. It’s easier to enforce a contract if it’s well drafted and includes sufficient protections. So if you need advice about a contract issue, our specialist solicitors can help you. 

A complete service

When you’re entering into a contract in business, there are lots of ways we can help.

Reviewing contracts: if you’ve received a draft contract, we can review it for you and identify any possible risks for you. We can propose and draft amendments for you, to protect your business and interests.

Drafting a contract: if you’re issuing a contract, we can draft it for you and advise on what to include and specific wording. We can explain the differences between business-to-business and business-to-consumer contracts. You can explain to us what you want your contract to achieve and we can draft it for you.

Negotiating terms in a contract: if you want us to, we can negotiate amendments with the other party’s solicitor for you. We can also offer practical advice on particular things to be aware of when negotiating contracts. 

Peace of mind

When you invest in a well-drafted contract, you potentially save yourself a lot of money further down the line, because it will give the proper protection and will be easier to enforce. And when you entrust the job to us, you can be confident that you’ll get a meticulous document that looks after your best interests. We carefully construct every contract to:

  • Protect you against risk – we’ll give practical advice on the common traps in draft contracts and how to avoid falling into them
  • Do what you need it to do – we’ll make sure that the contract works for you and not just the other party, and that you know exactly what you’re signing
  • Work in court – we’ll give you everything you need to ensure your contract is enforceable under the complex legislation and case law that govern contracts.

So, you can trust our commercial contracts team to deliver a product that works now - and for the future of your business.

What to do next

When you work with Tees, we’ll listen to what you need to get a thorough understanding of your business. We’ll work out what needs to be in your proposed contract and we’ll use our experience to advise you on what to include and how to word it. You’ll want to know what you’re signing up to before you do, so we’ll talk to you in plain English. Likewise, any documents we draft for you will also be clear and easy to understand. Like all our business customers, you’ll have a solicitor, so you’ll always know who to call if you need to talk to someone. We’ll work efficiently to complete your contract and we’ll keep an eye on costs too.
