Commercial Contracts

Every day commercial and non-commercial organisations are dealing with and managing relationships and executing agreements that bind them contractually to their suppliers, customers and other third parties.

We work with you to ensure these relationships and contracts clearly reflect your intentions and safeguard, as far as is legally and commercially possible or viable, the interests of your business.

Whether in the context of e-commerce or the more traditional supply of goods or services, the Intellectual Property, Technology and Commercial (IPTC) team can prepare or review terms & conditions tailored for your business to provide clarity in commercial arrangements and offer protection in the event of dispute.

The IPTC team advises companies of all sizes, from start-ups to multinationals, across a wide range of sectors including manufacturing, retail, IT, and the financial services sectors on a variety of commercial contracts including, by way of example:

  • distribution, agency and  reseller agreements;
  • licensing, cross-licensing, franchising and collaboration arrangements;
  • general contracts for the supply and purchase of good and services;
  • media, sponsorship, endorsement and branding agreements;
  • e-commerce terms and conditions


In fact, the IPTC team provide legal advice on the whole gamut of commercial relationships from A to Z.

The firm’s extensive overseas legal network affords our clients direct access to local legal advice around the globe – dealing with lawyers that we know and have worked with on previous occasions. Hardly a week passes when we are not in dialogue with lawyers outside the UK.

The practical, commercially-focused advice provided by the members of the IPTC team from planning, scoping, drafting, negotiating and agreeing heads of terms through to finalising and executing the formal documentation means that you achieve the result you require within the deadlines you must meet.

Commercial contracts govern the way you operate your business. We aim to make sure you do so on your terms.

The businesses and organisations we work with include the Scottish Government, Kames Capital plc, Johnston Press plc, Aperta Limited, the Dacoll Group, Vascutek Limited, IIZUKA Limited, Scottish Opera, W H Malcolm Limited, Johnstons of Elgin, Scottish Salmon Company and Equator (Scotland) Limited.
