Our focus is you

Our specialist commercial lawyers are skilled negotiators and draftsmen who play a role in helping you manage your position in the supply chain.

Supply chain relationships are critical to the success of many businesses: none more so than for product manufacturers/assemblers and buyers of those products.

The rise of joint ventures, strategic alliances, and business partnerships in the supply chain requires our commercial lawyers (together with colleagues in our Corporate team) to carefully consider matters such as business structure and allocation of risk between partners.

Wherever you are in the supply chain, we can advise you as to your obligations with regards to combatting bribery and corruption and ensuring that your supply chain is free from modern day slavery and human trafficking.

We work with you to develop ethical trading policies, an increasingly important consideration for those trading internationally. Such policies can help build sales, attract investment, maintain staff loyalty and motivation, enhance trust in your business, boost revenue and save money, for example, by implementing better waste-management procedures.
