Commercial contract legal consultant
Practical, cost effective Legal Consultant for your commercial contracts & agreements
After practising for over 12 years working as a Corporate Commercial Solicitor in some of the biggest City and international law firms, I have an overall grasp of the important issues in this area of law. I was involved in company acquisitions, stock exchange listings, investment agreements of all kinds including venture capital and management buy-outs, and even a government privatisation. I have been involved in legal problem solving at the highest levels.
I am intellectually sharp, thorough, creative and highly commercial.
I love working with entrepreneurs who are flexible and results driven. I enjoy getting to know them and to being a trusted sounding board and advisor. I have acted for many start-ups and growth businesses over the years.
So if you want a practical, cost effective, business legal consultant who has genuinely expertise, detailed knowledge, know-how and experience who is able to understand commercial realities and anticipate opportunities and risks……then you are in the right place.
Your business needs the right commercial agreements in order to work smoothly and efficiently. They can facilitate good customer and supplier relationships and help avoid disputes.
- A good contract will take into consideration future obligations and anticipate the changing nature of business.
- You need to be aware of where you are exposed to risk.
I will help you gain highly practical and proportionate contracts. The aim is always to include all the important things and not be distracted by irrelevant fluff.
I can evaluate your bargaining position and respond accordingly.
It is always helpful to keep the basics in mind:
- Who is to do what?
- Where, how and when will the contract be performed?
- What are the key milestones and time critical dates?
- When will payment be made?
- What happens if payment is late or not made?
- How will disagreement be dealt with to avoid court proceedings?
I can assist in resolving business disputes and avoiding litigation. In my experience most business people want to avoid going to court as they know how expensive that can be. By being sharp, pragmatic and realistic I can help you stay out of court.
