The full range of legal advice for commercial contracts

Contracts are an essential tool for your business. Whether you are dealing with customers, suppliers, partners or entering into any other business relationship it is essential that you protect yourself against future problems by setting out an agreement in writing.

Our commercial and corporate solicitors work with businesses and individuals across Scotland, the UK and internationally to draft, review and finalise all manner of commercial contracts and terms and conditions.

Whether you’re a small business employing one or two people or a large company, our solicitors can draft legal documents to suit all types of commercial agreements.

We offer a free initial consultation to anyone seeking advice on a contract. We are always competitively priced and pleased to discuss costs with you. We will endeavour to agree a fixed-fee for any specific piece of work or alternatively we offer many clients a cost-effective retainer service where we provide regular business advice and legal services for a fixed monthly/quarterly fee. 

For further information or to discuss any issue you may have, please get in touch.

Our lawyers were shortlisted for Commercial Team of the Year at the British Legal Awards 2014.
