Commercial Contracts

A number of our lawyers have previously worked in industry or have completed extended secondments with our clients. Our clients regularly tell us that we genuinely understand their challenges and that we deliver commercial solutions.

Clients like Sensus also tell us that they like our "down-to-earth", no-nonsense approach to work and that we are fun to work with.

We are happy to support clients dealing with a wide range of commercial matters. As contracts expire, we also advise on re-tendering exercises, which can include the in-sourcing of services as well as transition and service transformation.

We have also supported corporate transactions that have led to the requirement complex service separation arrangement and transitional services agreements. For example, on behalf of the Post Office Limited following its separation from Royal Mail.

Headline grabbing savings at contract award can quickly dissipate if the parties fail to deliver on their obligations. We also recognise the importance of advising clients on contract management and governance during the life of the agreement.

Our clients represent a broad range of public and private clients, and our lawyers are used to supporting clients on the procurement of services in accordance with the Public Contracts Regulations and the Utilities Contracts Regulations.

With a number of experienced consultants who have worked for many years in the public sector to provide a broad range of non-legal services to help with project management during the procurement phase and contract management following award.
