Our commercial lawyers are well versed in the challenges of growing a business and the nuances of developing new operations in different regions. We help our clients to expand their reach and to maximise the value of their intellectual property through domestic and international opportunities.
We offer the full range of services: from helping a business to decide upon the most appropriate structure for their international growth, and ensuring their brands and other rights are protected, through to drafting and negotiating contracts including franchising, licensing, agency and distribution agreements as well as sponsorship and merchandising agreements.
We help to manage working relationships once they have been established and, where disputes arise, our litigators endeavour to resolve the issues as quickly and painlessly as possible.
Our large multi-national clients appreciate our experience and knowledge of the legal and commercial landscape in which franchises operate outside the UK. Our smaller clients know that we will hold their hands through the complexities of the process and that we can fully prepare them for a new phase of their business development.
We work across a broad spectrum of sectors and in a wide range of countries including across Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
